Am I a Candidate for Breast Reduction?
Posted January 11, 2018 in Breast Reduction
Any woman who has excessively large and heavy breasts may be a candidate for breast reduction. While some women who fit this description may have no complaints about their breasts, many others consider their oversized breasts to be a physical, emotional, and psychological burden. Breast reduction surgery can help women be more comfortable in their bodies and may resolve many, if not all, of the problems that can be associated with having overly large breasts.
Do Your Oversized Breasts Affect You Negatively?
If your oversized breasts affect your quality of life in negative ways, you could be an excellent candidate for breast reduction. MagicSurgeon Dr. Humberto Palladino can happily improve your well-being and appearance by performing this procedure for you.
Do They Affect You Physically?
Overly large, pendulous breasts can have substantial physical side effects. One of the most common effects is recurring pain due to the excessive weight of the breasts. This may affect your back, neck, head, and shoulders, which may cause you to rely on pain medications on a regular basis. You may endure skin irritation and chafing beneath your breasts because of the excess skin rubbing together. The weight of your breasts pulling down on tight bra straps may create permanent indentations on your shoulders. You may also feel unable to participate in certain physical activities because they increase physical discomfort and pain. If you have a severe case, you may even develop skeletal deformities or be unable to stand or sit up straight for prolonged periods of time.
Any of these factors, and especially a combination of these factors, can be a sufficient reason to pursue breast reduction surgery. Indeed, because overly large breasts can significantly affect a woman’s physical well-being, many health insurance providers will offer financial assistance for the procedure. Most women who get this procedure for physical reasons notice an instant improvement in their previous symptoms from the moment they awaken after surgery.
Do They Affect You Emotionally or Psychologically?
Having oversized breasts can affect women emotionally and psychologically as well as physically. Do you ever feel inhibited from participating in activities you would have otherwise enjoyed, primarily because of the size of your breasts? Feeling limited and unable to do the things you love can drastically reduce your emotional well-being. It also prevents you from experiencing the emotional and psychological benefits associated with those activities, such as the endorphins you could feel after running or the sense of accomplishment you could feel after completing a challenging physical activity. Additionally, the struggle to find flattering clothing in this fashion-conscious world is even more difficult for women who have larger breasts. Limited clothing options may make shopping a discouraging experience, leaving you feeling frustrated and down on yourself. Furthermore, the fear or presence of unwanted social attention may make you feel embarrassed and self-conscious in social situations.
A poor self-image, low self-confidence, and other negative emotional and psychological effects caused by excessively large breasts can be eliminated with breast reduction surgery. Many women who undergo this surgery experience significant emotional and psychological benefits because of their results.
Getting a Breast Reduction
If these side effects hit too close to home, surgical reduction of overly large breasts can help you be more comfortable with your appearance.
