There are a variety of reasons why women may decide to get a breast reduction – whether it be for personal, cosmetic or for health reasons.
However, it can be difficult to recognise the signs that can help you tell if a breast reduction is right for you.
- Your breasts are larger than you’d like
The first sign that you might want to consider surgery as a possibility is if your breasts are a larger size than you’d like. Having excessively large boobs can make you feel as if you are constantly being weighed down and may make you feel self-conscious.
- Your breasts are changing your posture
You may wish to consider a reduction if the size of your breasts affects your body posture. An easy way to check whether your breast size is related to your poor posture can be to look at your nipples and areolas – if they tend to point downward, rather than forward, then that may be a signal that your breasts are affecting your posture.
3. You’re limited in how much you can move or exercise
Large breasts can frequently get in the way of exercise. They can block your movements, slow you down, or bounce so much that they cause you pain. Most people with larger breasts don’t enjoy standing or sitting up straight for long periods of time either.
4. You experience bra strap marks
Many large bra sizes have wide straps to increase their support for heavier breasts. Unfortunately, overburdened bra straps can leave permanent grooves in your shoulders from supporting overly large breasts. Constant friction is not good for the skin. The area beneath your breasts may be rubbed raw or develop rashes due to skin chafing.
5. You’re not happy with your body
Having abnormally large breasts can not only cause discomfort but they can also make you feel unhappy with your body. We understand how frustrating it can be to not being able to find clothes that fit you properly and how this can impact your self-esteem and confidence.
Breast reduction surgery eliminates excess breast tissue to create smaller breasts. You can change your life and your body shape with breast reduction surgery.
