Every year hundreds of thousands of women in the United States alone undergo Breast Augmentation to increase the size of their breasts, this is common knowledge, but what of the women who are born with naturally, un-proportionately large breasts? Many people do not realize the physical and emotional strain this can cause. For women with exceptionally large breasts, chronic neck, back and shoulder pain often persists. Simple things like exercise, shopping and even sleeping can become difficult due to pain, trouble breathing and an inability to find clothes which properly fit and flatter without causing them to look much heavier than they are. In addition, emotional strains are often placed on those with larger breasts and can cause them to feel self-conscious in social situations. Breast Reduction surgery has helped countless women every year alleviate these ailments.
Breast Reduction, also known as Reduction Mammaplasty is a procedure to reduce the size of the breasts by removing excess skin, fat and glandular tissue. This surgery has been extremely effective in giving women smaller, lighter, and firmer breasts. Most women, after a Reduction Mammaplasty, find a new confidence in their bodies as well as experiencing a more enjoyable, pain free life.
