Medical Reasons to Undergo Breast Reduction Surgery

If the size of your breasts is having an impact on your health, you should always seek treatment. Even if breast reduction surgery seems like a radical option to you, it is worth discussing other treatment options with your GP.

Excessive breast tissue can cause several health problems. The excess weight caused by your breasts can mean that too much pressure is put on your neck, back, and shoulders. This can cause pain, which can worsen over time. It can also cause you to develop bad posture, which can lead to further complications later in life. You should seek medical advice if your breasts are causing you aches or pains; even if the discomfort is not severe, it could lead to developments that are more serious.

If your breasts are too large, you may be unable to participate in an active lifestyle because of the discomfort that they cause you. If this is the case, you should consider breast reduction surgery to allow yourself to live a normal and healthy lifestyle.

If you have trouble, breathing because of the weight of your breasts you should seek treatment immediately. The weight of your breasts can put pressure on your lungs, particularly when you are lying down. In this case, you should speak to your doctor about the possibility of treatment to prevent the condition from getting worse.

Psychological Reasons to Consider Breast Reduction Surgery

As well as the physical reasons to consider breast reduction surgery, there are also benefits to your mental health. Having large breasts, whether you are male or female, can be an emotionally distressful situation. If this is causing you psychological upset then you should consider treatment.

Having large breasts can have a deep effect on your self- esteem and confidence. You may not feel comfortable wearing the clothes that you would like to wear, or doing the activities that you would like to do. If this is so, you should definitely speak to your doctor about treatment.

If you are being harassed, or made the victim of unwanted attention because of your breasts, treatment may be an option for you. However, you should make sure that you are undergoing the treatment for your own wellbeing rather than for other people. The attention that you get can cause you to become stressed or depressed making it extremely difficult to live your life. Having breast reduction treatment can eliminate the physical cause of your mental condition making you feel much better. You should also seek psychological treatment to help you to come to terms with your body.

Cosmetic Reasons to Consider Breast Reduction Surgery

Most people consider breast reduction surgery for cosmetic reasons. Excessively large or unevenly shaped breasts can be a cosmetic issue for many people. You may wish to consider breast reduction surgery if you feel that you body is out of proportion as a result of your breasts. However, you should never undergo any surgery in order to please someone else, for example your partner. Breast reduction surgery is a personal choice and you should not feel pressurised to undergo the surgery.
