Many women with breasts that are naturally very large experience difficulties in day-to-day life, and often seek out the help of a plastic surgeon in finding some relief and aesthetic improvement. Breast reduction surgery is one of the more commonly performed cosmetic surgery for women, and can be performed either alone or along with a breast lift to optimize results.
Problems Associated with Overly Large Breasts
Large-breasted women often experience discomfort, both physically and emotionally, which eventually causes them to seek help. Some of the problems these women experience often include:
- Aching Back or Neck. The weight of overly large breasts can take its toll on the body, as the neck and back must strain to support their weight. Large-breasted women often experience persistent back and neck pain that can have a significantly detrimental effect on their enjoyment of life. They can also develop poor posture to compensate for the extra weight.
- Skin Irritation. Many women with large breasts are susceptible to developing rashes and skin irritation under their breasts as the skin rubs together continuously. Deep grooves can also develop in the skin of the shoulders, as bra straps dig in from the weight.
- Difficulty Breathing. The weight of the breasts can compress the chest and rib cage, making it difficult to breathe, especially when walking or exercising. This compression can also cause numbness in different areas of the chest.
- Emotional Discomfort. Women with overly large breasts often have a very difficult time finding clothes that fit. Shopping can be difficult, and they may feel self-conscious as a result of their ill-fitting clothes or the unwanted attention they may receive.
