Signs You Need Breast Reduction Surgery
If you are troubled by breasts which are too large for your frame, you are not alone. Many women develop breasts which are too large for their frame, indeed the average bust in the UK has increased by a whole cup-size in the past 50 years.
Heavy breasts can cause both emotional and physical pain, with troubling symptoms of neck pain, bra-strap discomfort and breast pain. Not to mention, the interference with physical activity and difficulty in getting clothes to fit well.
You may reduce the size and shape of your breasts for a variety of reasons, from lifting and firming to making them smaller. This guide and a board-certified plastic surgeon can help you decide if breast reduction surgery is right for you.
What is breast reduction surgery?
Breast reduction surgery, also referred to as reduction mammaplasty, is a reconstructive surgical procedure performed under general anaesthesia that reduces the breasts by removing excess fat, breast tissue, and skin. The procedure involves surgical incisions, similar to a breast lift, and may include liposuction to remove excess fat in some cases. Our reconstructive surgery expert Dr Demetrius uses the latest and most precise techniques to perform breast reduction in Dubai that results in less scarring and faster recovery.
This surgery is frequently recommended for women who have large breasts and suffer from various issues, including neck and back pain, skin irritation, bra strap grooves, and skeletal deformities.
If one breast is noticeably larger than the other, breast reduction surgery can help improve breast symmetry. It is critical to consult with our doctor to determine whether you are an apt candidate for this surgery.
Here are some signs you need a breast reduction:
You encounter constant pain in your back, neck and shoulders
Excess weight from disproportionately large breasts can cause significant pain and discomfort. Back pain is the most common, as many women find it difficult to perform other routine activities.
Furthermore, the increased tension will cause pain in the head, neck, and shoulders. Surprisingly, even a D-cup or higher may be causing unexpected problems. Breast reduction surgery can help you finally get rid of the pain and the extra burden you’ve been dealing with.
Severe rashes and marks underneath the breasts
Simply going about your daily business can irritate the skin directly beneath large, drooping boobs. This irritation may progress to a red and painful rash. The cause of discomfort , such a condition can be frustrating and distracting.
Moreover, keeping the skin clean and dry can be extremely difficult, particularly during the hotter months. And such a moist environment increases the risk of infection. Finally, the extra weight of large breasts can pull on your bra straps, causing dips in your shoulders and irritation on other parts of your body where your bra is pulling on your skin.
With heavy and oversized breasts may affect posture. Many people with larger breasts instinctively slouch forward by pushing their shoulders forward. This can be harmful to their spine. Good sitting and standing posture increases blood flow, benefits your muscles, ligaments, and tendons, and aids in the health of your blood vessels and nerves. If this applies to you, you might be ready to have breast reduction surgery.
Hindrance in carrying out daily tasks
Experiencing discomfort and pain in everyday situations can be quite troublesome. Such emotions have the ability to taint any situation, whether pleasant or unpleasant. Tossing your child into the air, for example, or standing at a concert you’ve been looking forward to, such and many other occasions may be accompanied by pain caused by large breasts.
Breast reduction surgery is the most effective permanent solution. However, you will need some time to recover once the surgery is completed.
Difficulty fitting into all types of clothes
Are your breasts so large that you can’t find bras that fit? Do you have trouble finding clothing that isn’t too revealing for your body type? Are you tired of scouring various clothing stores in search of clothes that fit? Many other women, like you, have experienced this problem, and it is one of the most obvious signs that you may require breast reduction surgery. Clothing can be difficult to tailor to each body type.
Unfortunately, those with excessively large breasts do not constitute the majority. As a result, breast reduction may be the only way to expand your wardrobe in the ways you’ve always desired.
Consciousness about self-appearance
Although many of these signs indicate that you may require breast reduction surgery, none is as painful as a feeling of self-conscious about your breasts. Many women are concerned that their breasts do not fit their body type, while others dislike how droopy and uneven they are. Breast reduction surgery can address all of these concerns and more.
Difficulty in exercising
If you experience breast pain during moderate or vigorous exercise, your breasts may be too large for your body. This pain can make it difficult to exercise as much as you would like, and it can even discourage you from exercising at all. Breast reduction surgery may assist you in living a healthier lifestyle.
Often ladies with large breasts have significant asymmetry, with one side noticeably larger than the other.. They could be different in breast size and/or shape. Breast reduction surgery can improve breast symmetry if one breast is distinctly bigger than the other. During a breast reduciton surgery, the size of the breasts are equalised, and following surgery, the symmetry will be much reduced.
Benefits you derive from a breast reduction surgery
- You will be able to lead a more active life.
- Immediate pain or rash relief
- Breasts will be proportionate to the rest of your body.
- Improved overall body shape
- Your clothes will be more comfortable.
