Reducing the Weight of Oversized Breasts

Many women worry about their breasts being too small or one being smaller than the other. However, extremely large breasts can also be a major concern. Women with oversized breasts struggle with cup sizes that exceed DD, and this can make it very difficult to find bras and clothes that fit. Overly large breasts can also make a woman feel extremely self-conscious about herself in public and can cause back and neck problems because of the strain put on the spinal cord.

For those women experiencing physical and mental issues as a result of oversized breasts, we often perform breast reduction surgery.

What Is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast reduction can be best achieved through plastic surgery. This procedure, also known as reduction mammoplasty, will help reduce the size of very large breasts by at least two or three cup sizes.

The surgery will also help to reshape and recontour the woman’s breasts. Very large breasts have the natural tendency to sag or hang low, so breast reduction surgery will lift them up and help them look perkier under tight clothing.

When Should You Consider Having Breast Reduction Surgery?

You are an optimal candidate for breast reduction surgery if your breast size is disproportionately large compared to the rest of your body frame. If you are experiencing shoulder, neck, and back pain and it’s hindering your daily activities, this procedure may be the perfect solution.

If you feel extremely self-conscious in public, shy, embarrassed, and unhappy about the way your breasts look, breast reduction surgery is an option. It is also excellent for those with one breast that is much larger than the other and for those with nipples and areolae that point in downward, making the patient look and feel much older than she actually is.

Advantages of Breast Reduction Surgery

The following are some advantages of breast reduction surgery:

  • Your breasts will assume an overall better shape and contours, will be a lot firmer, and will be in much better proportion to the rest of your body.
  • You will be relieved of neck, back, and shoulder pain, it will be easier for you to exercise, breathe, and perform everyday routine chores.
  • You will fit better into your clothes and might even decrease a size or two, and you may feel very confident about yourself. Your self-esteem can be boosted.

For women who are planning to have children, it may be better to wait on breast reduction surgery.

What to Look for in Your Plastic Surgeon

It’s best to review a few good plastic surgeons before choosing one for your breast reduction. Make sure they have excellent credibility, have at least 10 years of experience, and come well recommended. Your plastic surgeon has to make you feel comfortable and confident about your decision before proceeding forward.
