How Can I Reduce Pain From Large Breasts?
Heavy breasts can cause uncomfortable body pain, skin irritation, numbness, headaches, and difficulty breathing. All of these symptoms can be a burden when it comes to regular daily activities. Breast reduction surgery can be an ideal option for women with excessively large breasts who experience persistent discomfort. Board-certified plastic surgeon James Matas, MD offers this procedure to remove excess skin and tissue from the breasts, with the goal of reducing their weight and size. In addition, the nipple and areola can be lifted in order to accommodate the smaller breast size. The results of the surgery usually leave the patient feeling more confident and comfortable with their new body.
Women can physically and emotionally benefit from undergoing breast reduction surgery. Patients usually experience the following benefits from this procedure:
- Relief from back, neck, and shoulder pain
- Elimination of skin imprints and irritation caused by bra straps
- Enhancement in breast proportion and overall appearance
- The ability to be more physically active
- Improvements in posture
- Rise in self-confidence
Some sources may recommend exercise regimens and diet tips to reduce the weight in breasts. These suggestions are typically ineffective and incomprehensive since they address only fatty tissue and have no impact on the presence of overabundant breast tissue. In contrast, breast reduction can offer lasting effects. During breast reduction surgery, Dr. Matas removes excess skin, fat, and breast tissue to achieve a proportionate breast size for the patient’s body. Results vary among individuals so we invite you to see the breast reduction before-and-after images of Dr. Matas’ patients who have undergone the surgery.
