What Are The Benefits of Breast Reduction Surgery?


If overly large breasts are preventing you from fully enjoying your life by restricting your clothing options or making you feel embarrassed or self-conscious, Queen City Plastic Surgery of Charlotte can help. When meeting with your plastic surgeon during a consultation, they will work with you to develop an individual treatment plan that takes into account your unique anatomical needs and aesthetic goals so that you can reap the many benefits of breast reduction surgery.

Some of the benefits of breast reduction surgery include:

  • Enhanced self-esteem
  • Improved breast shape
  • Improved fitting of clothing
  • More comfortable while exercising
  • Reduced skin irritation and discomfort of the back, shoulder, and neck

Reduces Back Pain

Large breasts place a greater strain upon the back. This is due to both the weight of the breasts plus the fact that this weight is largely outside of your center of gravity.

Breast reduction surgery has helped many women to reduce the pain and discomfort resulting from heavy and large breasts. The surgery has a high satisfaction rate among women who typically report less back pain

Corrects Bra Strap Grooves

Another problem that women seeking breast reduction often experience is bra strap grooving due to heavy breasts. You may find that the weight of your breasts places great strain upon your bra straps, leading to marks and constant discomfort involving the shoulders and the area under the shoulder blades.

If you’re tired of bra strap grooving, you should know that breast reduction surgery will relieve much of the strain that this area is under, significantly reducing shoulder divots.

Improves Posture

If you have larger breasts, you may find that you tend to have a slumped posture. Hunching over in this way can cause stress and compression at the convergence of the shoulder blades and surrounding nerves, leading to chronic pain.

By undergoing a breast reduction procedure, your breasts will be more proportional to the rest of your body, which should enhance your posture.

Reduces Skin Irritation

When your breasts are overly large, the skin in certain areas tends to become irritated and develops problems like itchiness and rashes. By undergoing a breast reduction procedure, you’ll be relieving the source of this irritation so that the skin in the affected area can fully heal.

Enhances Exercise

Women who have heavy breasts tend to have problems when they want to engage in exercise or vigorous physical activity. If you find that this is the case with you, a reduction of your breast size should allow you to resume activities that you may have once enjoyed, like running, dancing and aerobics.
