A lot of women who pursue breast reduction do so for medical reasons rather than cosmetic. Many women have breasts that are disproportionately large when compared to the rest of their body. For some women, the large size and heavy weight of their breasts can produce a number of unwanted physical side effects.
Large breasts can be fairly heavy and require a relatively strong and large frame to properly support them. Women with disproportionately large breasts do not have the body frame to support them, which places excess strain on the muscles and joints of the body. These women will typically experience pain in their backs, shoulders, and necks.
Breast reduction provides these women with relief from their pain while also ensuring that their breasts have a natural and beautiful appearance. If your large breasts are causing you joint and muscle pain, contact our office to schedule a consultation with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jarrod Little.
