The Benefits Of Breast Reduction Surgery


Breast reduction provides a number of benefits to women. One is to enhance self-image. If a woman has a larger than normal breast size or uneven breasts, the natural tendency is to feel insecurity. Other people may not notice the problem. But the sufferer usually feels bothered by it. Adolescent girls who have low self-esteem will feel severely self-conscious due to their condition. Breast reduction surgery can help solve this problem.

The problem goes beyond self-image as most women with larger breasts often feel physical and emotional difficulties as well. This can even lead to illnesses in the long term, if the condition is not corrected.

Women, whose breasts are larger than normal, may experience physical discomforts such as neck pains, back aches and shoulder aches because of the extra weight they carry. Abnormally large breasts may also cause the woman to have poor posture. Being top heavy will make her hunch forward. Most women with oversized breasts will also develop rashes under their breasts.

Women may also develop emotional problems due to the abnormal breasts size. Poor self-image and depression are likely to happen. Difficulties in finding clothes that fit them will also cause some annoyance. Big breasts may prevent you to do some tasks such as jumping or swimming. Consequently, self-confidence of the woman will suffer.

Breast reduction can greatly alleviate all these inconveniences caused by oversized breasts. After reduction mamaplasty, the patient will see marked changes on her breasts. The size of the breasts, of course, will be reduced. They also will look firmer and shaped better than before.

Since the excess weight is eliminated, back, shoulder and neck pains are also eradicated. This will give the person relief from the pain and extra weight. Rashes due to skin irritation under the breasts will be curbed. The indentation marks of the bra straps on the shoulders will also be eliminated.

The woman may also experience some breathing problems due to the abnormally large breasts. The breast reduction surgery can effectively get rid of this problem. If the other breast undergoes breast reconstruction, the reduced breast will be shaped like the reconstructed breast.

Difficulties in movement such as swimming or running are also minimized or totally eradicated after the breast reduction procedure. Consequently, the woman feels freer in her movements. The oversized breasts will no longer limit her, thus allow her to handle tasks which she found hard to accomplish before.

Perhaps the most welcome results are in the psychological or emotional aspects of the woman. The woman who undergoes breast reduction will often feel more confident of herself. She will also have a more positive self-image. With higher self-confidence and greater self-esteem, she will develop a more positive outlook and depression will be a thing in the past.
