Many women struggle with breasts that are far too large for their bodies and bring a host of physical and emotional problems. Breast reduction surgery makes it possible to reshape the breasts and create a more balanced, proportioned figure.
Breast Reduction Surgery: Reshaping Breast Tissue
Women who have over large, heavy breasts often dream of having a trimmer upper body. When nature has given you larger breasts, it can be embarrassing, uncomfortable, and make it impossible to engage in certain types of activities – or find clothing that fits. Some of the most common problems that women with overlarge breasts face include:
- Discomfort during physical exercise
- Difficulty finding clothing that fits
- Back pain
- Neck pain
- Shoulder pain
- Bra straps dig into shoulders
- Asymmetrical breasts
- Fungal infections
- Bad posture
- Emotional distress

Breast Reduction Recovery
While every person heals differently and the extent of the surgery needed can vary, typically patients will require at least one week prior to returning to work. Other activities, such as exercise or more intense physical activities are restricted for about three to four weeks.
During the initial stages of healing, walking is the best exercise. You will be required to avoid lifting or raising your arms to avoid putting stress on the incisions. It is normal to experience swelling, bruising, a tingling sensation, or numbness after surgery, which diminishes as the days pass. The final appearance of your smaller, more attractive breasts is achieved after about two to three months.
