4 Benefits Of Breast Reduction Surgery

4 Benefits Of Breast Reduction Surgery

Many women experience pain and discomfort due to the size of their breasts. Large breasts can cause lowered self esteem and stop you from participating in activities you enjoy. It can be difficult finding clothes that fit properly and women with larger breast size often complain about ill-fitting bras that cut into their shoulders. Over time these issues can become even worse, exacerbated due to aging, poor posture, and weight gain. For many women who feel their breast size is holding them back from living life to the fullest, going smaller with breast reduction surgery is a logical solution. 

If you are contemplating breast reduction this article will cover some of the benefits of this surgery and answer some common questions about the procedure.

Breast enhancement surgery is often one of the first procedures to come to mind when discussing breast surgery, but every year thousands of Canadian women opt for breast reduction. This procedure involves  the removal of excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to improve the shape and proportions of your breast to better suit your body. Breast reduction offer many benefits including:

Reduced Back Pain: Most women with large breasts experience some degree of back and neck pain. Over time, your shoulders can roll forward as they tire of bearing the weight, causing strain on the muscles of the neck and shoulders, as well as placing excess pressure on the discs and vertebrae of the spine. A breast reduction will help to alleviate pain and discomfort.

Better Skin Health: Many women with large breasts experience irritation and skin breakdown due to breast size. The breast fold and lower breast are particularly susceptible to recurring rashes and even infection caused by constant rubbing and chafing. Painful indentations, cuts, and friction from bra straps and ill-fitting undergarments are also a common complaint.Breast reduction surgery can remove the painful skin conditions that often come with very large breasts.

Freedom To Be Physical: Having large breasts not only can cause pain, but they can sometimes just truly be a pain! Many women with large breasts avoid recreation that causes discomfort or embarrassment. Exercise, sports, and other physical activities will become much easier and more comfortable when they don’t cause aches and pain and don’t attract unwanted attention. Reducing the size of your breasts give you the freedom to enjoy an active and fulfilling lifestyle

Quick Healing: Although it can impart dramatic results breast reduction surgery actually has a reasonably short recovery time. After the initial discomfort post op, many people find themselves back to work, social activities, and business as usual in no time at all.

Your breasts shouldn’t cause you pain and they certainly don't need to get into the way of doing the things you love comfortably. Breast reduction surgery will allow you to feel confident, healthy, and live pain free.

I recently had liposuction done by Dr. Peterson to fix Coolsculpt I had had done that left me uneven. He was very professional, caring and compassionate and assured me everything could be fixed. I can't express my gratitude to Dr. Peterson for what an amazing job he did and how well he took care of me. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a plastic surgeon, in fact I have recommended him to many friends and they have all been very happy. My experience at the clinic was amazing, right from the beginning talking with Cynthia and the amazing care I got from all the nurses, I felt very special.
