Maybe you’d love to try paddle boarding, or perhaps take part in yoga on the beach. You might just want to be able to wear a sexy shirt or simply walk around without pain. If you have large breasts, they often interfere with being able to do the things you want to do. A breast reduction can help make your shape more proportionate and alleviate the physical discomfort large breasts can cause. Before you decide to decrease your bra size, there are some factors you should take into consideration. Here are the top pros and cons:
Pros: your body will be more proportionate, your neck, back, and shoulder pain will be eliminated, you will be able to exercise and do the things you’ve always wanted to do, your clothes will fit better, and you will be more confident with your appearance.
Having said all that, there are some cons to think about too: You may experience decreased sensation around areolas, breast-feeding will be more difficult, there will be some visible scarring, and the healing period after surgery to reduce breast size takes patience.
Dr. Lisa J. Learn can help you weigh these pros and cons, assess if you are a good candidate for breast reduction surgery, and help to determine if the procedure is right for you.
