If your large breasts weigh you down figuratively or literally, breast reduction may be the solution to enhance your quality of life and confidence. The surgery requires some downtime, though, and you’ll need to be prepared. Here’s what you can expect after breast reduction.
What is Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction (reduction mammaplasty) is a surgery that reduces the size of overly large breasts. This can be done for cosmetic reasons or to reduce physical side effects.
Many women experience back, shoulder, and neck pain from heavy breasts. They may also have rashes under their breasts and discomfort from bra straps digging into their skin. Overly large breasts can also make it difficult to find bras that fit, wear certain clothing, or engage in some physical activities.
