When a woman lives a life in daily discomfort because the size of her natural breasts is too large, a breast reduction surgery is incredibly transformative. There are many ladies who endure pain and inconvenience because of their bust size.

The size of large breasts can take its toll. Yes, even with the best bras on the market, the neck and back are indeed stressed from the extra weight. Additionally, towards the end of the day, bra straps leave painful, red indentations upon each shoulder. Aside from placing extra material underneath the straps, not much else can be done.

And on hot days, skin irritation can occur.

While pain generally is the superseding reason why women undergo this procedure, another reason for consideration is how downright uncomfortable and cumbersome it can be to have large breasts.

Others may feel that a woman having natural large breasts is “fortunate,” but for a group of these ladies what they do feel is unfortunate.

For example, regular exercise may not be a regular routine. The idea of jogging, hiking, and weight training can be both painful and unbearable. And while swimming can be highly beneficial, those with very large breasts may be hard pressed to find a swimsuit which fits properly and may shy away from the sport if they must go to a public pool.

And the key to healthy living is the ability to exercise.

On a daily basis, finding the right clothing to wear is very challenging and options are limited. Some women find themselves wearing baggy tops in an effort to conceal their size.

While pain and discomfort are at the forefront, a lack of self-confidence may also loom.

For those ladies with large, natural breasts who have children, they may realize after their childbearing years that their size has increased substantially. There are instances where a leap in one or more bra cup sizes has occurred. In addition to heavier breasts, they may also have experienced a more extensive drop and loss in volume.

A breast reduction is a procedure which many women consider when they have a difficult time on a daily basis with aches and discomfort. A consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon is the first step in determining whether or not a patient is the right candidate.

During the consultation, a potential patient can ask a variety of important questions such as details about the surgery, scarring, recovery, risks, and side-effects. It’s also advisable to request to see before-and-after photos of patients who underwent the same surgical procedure.

Find a doctor in where there is a comfortable and professional rapport. This is important because plastic surgery is considered a journey, and because of this, having a good relationship with a surgeon is vital.

There are many patients who undergo this surgery and are thrilled with the results and their new outlook on life.

Still, a breast reduction surgery is a personal decision and should be made thoughtfully and pragmatically.

Once the choice is made on having a breast reduction, the next step is finding the right surgeon through meticulous research, patient reviews, and referrals.
