Women who want large breasts don’t know how hard it can be to live with a voluptuous bust. Whether your breasts have always been large or they have changed after pregnancy, they can make you feel like you are dealing with a burden that you can never put down.
The added weight on your chest can pull at your back and your shoulders to the point that you are living on pain pills. You can lose weight and wear the most supportive bra that you can find, but that still may not bring your breasts down to more manageable size. When your breasts get in the way of your quality of life, it’s time to get surgical help with a breast reduction.
What Happens During a Breast Reduction?
If you are a good candidate to have a breast reduction procedure, our plastic surgeon will discuss your goals for your breasts, as well as your discomfort, to determine how much smaller your breasts should be. During the procedure itself, incisions are made in your breasts in order to remove excess fat and tissue. Your incisions will be closed and you will be provided with a support bra once you come out of the recovery room.
You will have to deal with pain and swelling in the days that follow as your breasts heal. You will have to take care of your incisions and cut back on your physical activity until it is safe for you to become active again. However, the inconvenience will be worth it once your breasts have healed.
Change Your Life When You Change Your Breasts
Once you have rested and fully recovered from your procedure, you won’t believe the difference that smaller breasts can make. You won’t feel like you are lugging all that weight around with you anymore. There won’t be a strain that is tugging at your back and shoulders. Your posture will improve as you are able to stand tall. You may even find that you are more active now that your breasts are not pinning you down.
Smaller breasts can make you feel less self-conscious and more comfortable with your figure. Make the decision to have a breast reduction and you will wonder why you waited as long as you did to finally find relief from your pain.
