After having breast reduction surgery, there are a number of long-term benefits that women can experience which boost their quality of life. While most of these benefits are functional, many are also cosmetic, especially for those who receive a lift with their procedure. Here are some of the best benefits of breast reduction surgery that you can expect.
Chronic Pain Relief
Many women with large breasts often have issues with chronic pain in the back, shoulders, and neck. While some of this pain is due to the weight of the breasts, some of it can be caused by the compression of nerves, resulting in tingling or numbness. A breast reduction can reduce the overall size and weight of your breasts, providing immediate improvements to posture and relief of pain.
More Active Lifestyle
With large breasts, it can be difficult to enjoy high impact physical activities or aerobic exercises. Although a supportive bra can make it a little easier to have an active lifestyle, it is sometimes not enough to mitigate the discomfort of larger breasts. Breast reduction surgery makes it much easier to participate in your favorite physical activities.
Improved Clothing Options
For many women, large breasts can restrict the number of clothing options they have. In addition, most of the clothes that they can find are incredibly uncomfortable to wear and don’t provide enough support. By getting a breast reduction, you have a wider variety of outfits to choose from, which can help improve your self-esteem.
If you have large breasts, it can be hard to find a comfortable position to sleep in. Following a breast reduction procedure, you can sleep in loose clothing without having to wear a bra to bed, contributing to a more relaxing sleep schedule.
