What Problems Can Breast Reduction Address?

Large, heavy breasts can cause physical discomfort and strain on the neck, shoulders, and back. They can lead to chronic pain, headaches, and poor posture. Breast reduction surgery can alleviate these symptoms by reducing the weight and volume of the breasts. 

Excessively large breasts can also cause friction and irritation against the skin. It may lead to rashes, chafing, and skin infections in the inframammary fold. Breast reduction surgery eliminates excess skin and tissue, reducing the risk of skin irritation and promoting better hygiene.

Women with large breasts often struggle to find clothing that fits well and provides adequate support. Breast reduction surgery can improve clothing options and allow individuals to wear more comfortable styles without feeling self-conscious about their breast size.

Moreover, large breasts can limit participation in physical activities due to discomfort and restricted movement. Breast reduction surgery can enhance mobility and flexibility, which can enable individuals to engage in physical activities with greater ease.
