How to Know If You’re a Candidate for Breast Reduction Surgery

If your breasts are what some might call “oversized” and you experience discomfort due to their size and weight, you may be a candidate for breast reduction. This procedure could truly change your life! Here are some of the factors that identify whether you are a good candidate for breast reduction.

Your Breasts are Disproportionately Large

If your breasts are disproportionately large in comparison to the rest of your body, you may be a good candidate for breast reduction. This surgery can get rid of excess breast tissue and give you a more natural-looking, balanced figure.

You Have Chronic or Recurring Pain in Your Back, Neck, and/or Shoulders

Oversized breasts can cause chronic or recurring pain, especially in the back, neck, and shoulders. This is because the heavy weight of the breasts on the chest wall can pull at these areas, causing constant strain. Relieving some of the excess weight with breast reduction surgery could dramatically diminish and even eliminate chronic pain from your daily life.

Your Breasts Hurt When You Exercise

Sometimes, a poorly fitted sports bra is responsible for breast pain during exercise. But if you are wearing a quality sports bra that has been properly fitted for you, and you still experience pain when exercising, a breast reduction could help. No woman should have to limit their exercise due to breast pain or bouncing.

Every Bra Feels Uncomfortable or Irritating

Every woman should know that it’s well worth the time and expense to get fitted for a good quality bra. But if even the best bra money can buy has given you shoulder grooves, or if your skin is irritated along the shoulder straps or beneath your breasts, it’s a sign that there is too much weight or pressure for your bra to handle. A breast reduction could reduce your breasts to a more modest size and eliminate the strain on your bra straps, along with any shoulder grooves and skin irritation.

Your Large Breasts Cause You Emotional Discomfort

Every woman should feel comfortable in her own body. If you are self-conscious about your overly large breasts, or if they cause you anxiety or stress, consider getting a breast reduction. Your emotional and mental health are worth it.

Shopping is Impossible, and Clothes Don’t Fit

Does shopping make you miserable because no clothing will fit your bust? When you finally find something that fits your chest, is it unflattering everywhere else? Do you have to order everything online or get all your clothes custom tailored? All of these are signs that you may benefit from a breast reduction.

Your Breasts are Fully Developed

A young woman whose breasts are still growing may identify with some of the above, but it’s important that candidates wait until their breasts are fully developed to undergo this procedure. If your breasts are still growing and changing, it’s impossible to predict how much they could change after surgery. If you’d like a breast reduction but you’re still on the young side, wait until your figure is fully developed. The wait and results will all be worth it!
