A breast reduction help women who have pain associated with their large breasts. While other women do what they can to increase the size of their breasts, others are given naturally large breasts that cause back pain. For some, breast reduction surgery can be covered by a woman’s health insurance policy if health concerns are the reason for the surgery.

Cons of Large Breasts

Macromastia is a condition that can affect a woman’s physical and emotional well-being and is caused by enlarged breasts. For some women, losing weight will help reduce the size of their breasts. However, that is not always the solution.

The weight of large breasts can cause pain in the neck, shoulders, and back. Houston breast reduction surgery helps relieve this pain. By reducing the size of the breasts, your body does not have to strain to support them. Nerve problems can also arise due to large breasts due to poor posture.

Another problem that is caused by large breasts is that it is hard for the woman to have an active life. For example, yoga, running, practicing golf, and other physical activities can be hard to do with large breasts.

Breast reductions are ideal for women who have yeast infections and skin rashes under the breasts. This is a bigger problem in areas with warm, humid weather conditions. Also, women may experience a groove on their shoulders from their bra strap digging into their skin.

It can be emotionally taxing on a woman to have large breasts in addition to the many physical problems that can arise. Having disproportionately large breasts can make it hard to find clothing that fits properly, which can affect the woman’s self-esteem.

If you suffer from any of these problems because of large breasts, you can visit with a plastic surgeon to see if you are a good candidate for a breast reduction.
