Common Reason for Breast Reduction Surgery

Common Reason for Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction surgery is a common procedure done to help improve an individual’s quality of life. A breast reduction surgery will change the size, weight, firmness, and shape of the breast to help individuals achieve their goals and desires. Many reasons that an individual may be looking for a breast reduction can be due to their self-esteem and physical appearance, but breast reduction surgery can also help relieve medical problems an individual may be experiencing. Below, we will cover some of the most common reasons a person may be considering a breast reduction.Back PainPatients may reach out to a doctor to discuss a breast reduction to help reduce any chronic back, neck and shoulder pain. Heavy breasts can affect the curvature of the spine, leading specifically to the neck and upper back pain. This can also negatively impact your posture when sitting and walking. Excess weight is placed on the chest, and without enough support, women find it hard to maintain good posture. Due to this, they will slouch forward, resulting in pain and poor posture. Breast reduction surgery can eliminate these problems in most cases.Limitations in Physical ActivityPatients with large, heavy breasts may find it more difficult, awkward or painful to participate in certain physical activities. Reducing the breast size for these individuals can help them enjoy activities with their friends where they may have been sitting out previously and can help them to achieve their fitness goals. Self- Esteem and AppearanceLarge breasts, especially when not in proportion to your height and weight, can be embarrassing or make individuals feel insecure about their bodies. Women with large breasts may especially feel self-conscious wearing swimsuits and clothing that shows more cleavage due to unwelcome attention associated with large breasts. It also may be hard to find clothing that is comfortable and provides adequate coverage.Breast Reduction for MenBreast reduction isn’t a procedure only for women. Due to genetics, use of certain medications, or other unspecified reasons, some men develop the appearance of enlarged breasts due to an excess of breast tissue. A male breast reduction is the most effective known treatment for gynecomastia or enlarged male breasts. This cosmetic surgery procedure removes excess fat and glandular tissue to restore a flatter, firmer and more masculine contour to the chest. The ideal patient for this procedure would be at their goal weight with a healthy Body Mass Index (BMI).If you’re interested in learning more about a breast reduction surgery and planning your own procedure, please contact us online or call (403) 452-7953 to request your initial consultation.
