Reasons to Reduce a Big Bust!
            Generally speaking, the majority of woman are dissatisfied with their breast size and are typically opting to have a breast augmentation to increase their proportion, however, there are women that wish to do just the opposite.  Overly large breasts can cause a lot of pain and discomfort for women, among other issues.  If you are considering having a breast reduction, we have multiple reasons why you should follow through!
            Breast reductions are performed in order to alter the size, firmness, weight and shape of breasts.  Sizable breasts can cause discomfort to women due to their weight, creating back and neck pain, issues with posture and skin irritation.  Since large breasts are so heavy, bra straps can cause uncomfortable indentations in patient’s shoulders because of their weight.  Women with large breasts can have restrictions when it comes to sports, activities and certain exercises because it is painful and unpleasant. 
            Aside from physical discomfort, women who have large breasts may feel embarrassed when their breasts are disproportionate to the rest of their body and lack confidence.  It may be difficult to find clothing that fits their breasts along with the rest of their body and feel unnecessary exposure when in a bathing suit.       
            Opting for a breast reduction can make breasts appear smaller, more proportioned, and lighter, relieving physical discomfort and pain.  The outcome of a breast reduction is permanent but the breasts have potential to become larger due to pregnancy, weight loss and weight gain.  Generally, insurance companies will cover the cost of the procedure if it is due to medical reasons such as relief of back pain and skin issues.
