The Benefits of a Breast Reduction

The grass is always greener on the other side. Plenty of women want larger breasts. But women living with overly large ones know that they come with consequences.

If your breast size causes problems for you, don’t hesitate to talk to Linda Swanson, MD, about a breast reduction at either of our offices in Torrance and Los Alamitos, California. As a specialist in breast reductions, Dr. Swanson can help you determine if this procedure is right for you.

If it is, you’ll reap several benefits. In fact, one study showed that more than 95% of women who received breast reductions said they were not just satisfied with their results, but that they would get the procedure again. 

Here are some of the benefits you’ll get if you choose a breast reduction.

Reduced back, neck, and shoulder pain

Large breasts add a significant amount of weight to the front of your frame. Many women who consider a breast reduction do so because they experience regular pain in their lower back, shoulder, or neck as a result of their breasts. 

Your breast reduction alleviates the strain on your body, bringing your pain to an end. 

Better-fitting clothing

Disproportionate breasts can make it extremely challenging to shop for clothes. Button-down tops that fit your frame may feel snug — or even impossible to button — through the chest. Sweaters and tee shirts may fit too tightly across your breasts. Ultimately, you might find yourself buying larger clothes purely to accommodate your breasts.

It doesn’t have to be this way. After a breast reduction, you can more easily fit into conventional sizing. 

Fewer skin sensitivities

Your skin does its best when it can breathe. Large breasts can mean the skin underneath your breasts rarely gets sufficient air flow, leading to skin sensitivity, rashes, and other issues. 

With smaller breasts, the underside of your breasts won’t overlap with your upper stomach skin quite as much, meaning fewer skin problems. 

Improved comfort and self-confidence

Many women who feel their breasts are too large are keenly aware of them throughout the day. You might be hyper-aware of the attention they draw, and they may make you feel less confident. 

Fortunately, a breast reduction can give you a more proportioned frame, helping you feel more normal. This can help you feel more comfortable in your skin and be your best, most powerful self no matter what social situation you face. 

If you think a breast reduction might be right for you, schedule an appointment with Dr. Swanson. She can talk you through the procedure so you know what to expect, and help you determine if you’re a good candidate.
