3 Benefits of Breast Reduction You May Not Be Aware Of

Only those with a well-developed breast region can know the challenges that come with this type of physique. For these women, a breast reduction procedure can help alleviate lower back pain, improve posture, and help their body look more in proportion.

But there are also some less frequently discussed benefits that are also worth considering:

  1. Ability to participate in sports and other activities. Many times, excessively large breasts get in the way of movement and discourage people who have them from participating in activities. They can also cause repetitive stress injuries (colloquially known as “jogger’s breast”) during exercises that require repetitive motion. Ultimately, this could become a bigger health problem if those with excessively large breasts decide to refrain from exercise in general to avoid injury and embarrassment. But after your recovery from breast reduction, you’ll find it much easier to dive into these types of activities with a new sense of balance and mobility.
  2. Easier shopping and better deals. Not surprisingly, those with excessively large breasts tend to have problems finding clothes that fit them properly. Clothes either fit the chest region or the rest of the body, but not both. Even when things do fit, odd sizes usually mean limited availability and lack of good deals. With a breast reduction comes a more streamlined physique that will likely better fit off the rack garments. For these individuals, , that means more clothing options, more freedom to dress how they want to, and more savings because they can fit into a larger variety of clothes.
  3. Reduced stretch marks and better look as you age. No one likes to think about stretch marks, but due to the inevitabilities of gravity, they’re a fact of life. The heavier and more out-of-proportion a particular part of the body is, the higher the likelihood that stretch marks will appear in that region. A breast reduction procedure not only improves comfort and posture but also helps to avoid stretching and stretch marks over time, allowing your breasts and the areas around them to age better. While this may not be something you’re thinking about now, it is something to consider for later on in life.

A breast reduction surgery removes glandular tissue, fat, and skin from the breasts, resulting in smaller, lighter, firmer, and better proportioned breasts. The goal of breast reduction surgery is to give a woman not only smaller but also more shapely breasts that are in proportion with her body. Good candidates for breast reduction include women who are mature enough to  understand the reduction procedure and who have realistic expectations for the final outcome.
