Breast reduction is one of the most rewarding procedures that Dr. Ary Krau offers. It is truly heartening to help a woman that feels hindered by oversized breasts. Breast reduction can help women as young as 18 or as mature as 80 love their breasts and body. In this post, Dr. Krau shares some of the incredible life changing benefits of breast reduction surgery.
Resolves Aches and Pains
Many women with heavy, oversized breasts struggle with chronic pain in the back, neck and shoulders. Sometimes this pain can be debilitating and affect quality of life. It may be accompanied by skin irritation or rashes in the breast crease. Breast reduction removes a significant amount of tissue to lighten the breasts, which reduces or eliminates these aches and pains, and resolves rashes and irritation.
Makes It Easier to Exercise
The weight of the breasts can make it difficult to exercise and live an active life; it’s hard to hike, swim or ride a bike with oversized, heavy or sagging breasts. Reducing the size of large breasts helps patients live the active life they want without this type of interference. This is extremely freeing for women that were previously limited in their activities.
Oversized breasts can affect posture, causing women to bend or hunch over due to the weight of the breasts. This type of body language can read as unapproachable. Breast reduction can improve posture and enable women to sit, stand and walk with their heads held high, looking friendlier and more approachable.
Produces Perkier, More Proportional-Looking Breasts
Let’s not overlook the aesthetic benefits of breast reduction — after surgery, the breasts feel good and look good! The goal of surgery is to improve breast size so they “fit” the patient’s body frame and look proportional. The breast reduction operation also includes breast lift techniques, leaving the breasts not only smaller but perkier and more youthful looking, as well.
Perhaps the most life changing benefit of breast reduction is the increase in self-confidence. The size and appearance of a woman’s breasts is often linked to her body image and confidence. Having attractive and proportional looking breasts can dramatically change how a woman feels about her body and herself.
