Have you been struggling with breasts that make your back ache? If so, you are not alone. Many women suffer from overly large and heavy breasts that make normal daily movement feel painful and difficult to endure. Whether this has been a problem your whole life, or if you’re just noticing the discomfort now, you don’t have to settle for this as your new normal. The good news is that a breast reduction combined with a breast lift can help reduce back pain. Here’s how:
How Can a Breast Reduction Help?
Breast reduction is the first step in our two-step approach to reducing back pain caused from breast size. During a breast reduction, excess skin, fat and tissue are removed, to reduce the volume of the breast. By removing this unwanted extra weight, the breasts will be lighter and less cumbersome, causing less strain on the back.
How Can a Breast Lift Help?
As the second step towards reducing back pain, a breast lift is an excellent complement to a breast reduction. This procedure removes excess skin and tightens the breast tissue to reshape and support the new contour of the breast. Lifted breasts reduce the weighted, heavy feeling that can occur from sagging – relieving back pain, as well as preventing the painful indenting of bra straps on the shoulders.
Who is a Good Candidate for These Procedures?
Although the best way to determine your candidacy for a breast reduction and breast lift is to schedule a consultation, you may be a good candidate if you have back or neck pain due to the size of your breasts, drooping nipples, lost breast volume or breast shape.
