It’s not surprising that a lot of women suffer physical symptoms due to larger breasts. What is surprising, however, is that so many women do not realize their breasts are at the root of their suffering. Breast reduction surgery can be life-changing for women who are suffering or are insecure about the size of their bust lines. Much as breast implants can boost the confidence of women who feel that their breasts are too small, a breast reduction can have a positive impact on the self-esteem of women with the opposite concern. So, if you think you might be suffering due to your large breasts, here are some signs that you might want to consider a breast reduction.

Your Breasts Cause Discomfort

Large breasts can cause a long list of physical complaints. Women with large breasts often experience back pain, neck pain, and skin irritation. The weight of large breasts can also cause bra straps to dig into the shoulders, causing pain and indentation. Breast reduction surgery can help relieve these chronic issues.

Your Breasts Limit Your Activity

For many women with large breasts, certain activities are off limits. This can include things like jogging and many sports. Taking part in these activities can lead to pain, and some women may feel awkward participating because of a lack of adequate support. After undergoing breast reduction surgery, you will finally be able to take part in activities you have been avoiding due to your breast size.

Your Breasts Compromise Your Confidence

Women who feel like their breasts are too large for their frames often suffer from confidence issues. It can be difficult to find clothing that fits properly, and certain tops may not feel comfortable. Some women may also feel like their bust line draws attention that they do not want. With breast reduction surgery, finding comfortable clothing that fits well becomes much easier, and concerns about unwanted attention may be alleviated.

Reducing pain, becoming more active and an improved self-confidence are all great benefits of having a breast reduction. Don’t let breasts that are too large get in the way of your life. Be proactive about your body and make the decision that is right for you and your health.
