Women with overly large breasts can resort to plastic surgery to have the volume of their breasts reduced. This might seem hilarious for women struggling with emotional complexes due to the underdevelopment of their breasts; however, women with excessively large breasts can be suffering from just as much discomfort, or even more. Back, neck and shoulder pain are just one of the signs indicating you need a breast reduction. If the pain is constant and persistent and if you need to take medication often just to be able to get on with your normal daily activities, the recommendation is to see a plastic surgeon for a breast reduction. Other signs you need a breast reduction are: – Difficulties in breathing when performing physically demanding activities Have you ever seen a woman with overly large breasts running? If you did, chances are she was either holding her breasts with both hands or struggling to breathe despite it not looking like she was putting on too much effort. It is normal to experience difficulties in breathing, especially when performing physically demanding activities or sleeping on the back as the volume of the breasts is like a burden placed on the chest. – Difficulties in finding suitable clothing and lingerie It might not seem like such a big deal, but not being able to find suitable lingerie can actually trigger even more pain and discomfort than normal. Why is this? The answer is very simple. Big breasts need support and compression, and it is only a good quality, fitted bra that can deliver this. But unfortunately, bras for big sizes are difficult to find and tend to be more expensive than a normal bra. Also, not being able to find clothes that fit the excessive size of the breasts can turn out to be a real issue for women, especially if they are professionally active. – Dermatological conditions that occur on the inflammatory fold Due to the excessive size of the breasts that are hanging on the chest wall, there is constant perspiration on the inframammary fold. This means that dermatological conditions such as rashes and mycosis can occur and they can be very difficult to treat. – Abnormal body posture Women with overly large breasts since their teenage years tend to develop an abnormal body posture. The volume of the breasts is putting a lot of pressure on the spine, causing it to bend in different ways. Deformations of the spine occur this way. The medical terms used for them are kyphosis and scoliosis, and they can be very difficult to correct later on in life. Abnormal body posture can lead to other health complications, even associated with the digestive system. This is the reason why the plastic surgeon might recommend undergoing breast reduction surgery rather early in life if the breast hypertrophy is severe.
