How A Breast Reduction Can Improve Your Life

A voluptuous figure is often desired. Large breasts have become a symbol of beauty that many women try to achieve. The number of breast augmentations performed annually is a testament to its popularity. However, sometimes a large bust can bring more negatives than positives. From issues with posture, pain, and difficulty finding clothing that fits well, large breasts can bring a multitude of problems. Large breasts can even begin to affect your quality of life. If the size of your breasts is causing you discomfort and pain, then a breast reduction is an effective solution for restoring your health. Charles Galanis, M.D., is experienced at giving women the breasts they desire by reducing their size and maintaining their natural look.

WHAT BREAST REDUCTION CAN CORRECT

During your breast reduction surgery, Charles Galanis, M.D., will remove excess fat and tissue from within the breast and then redrape the skin over the remaining tissue. He will remove any excess skin, taking care to shape your new breasts to maintain a natural look and feel. The procedure will alleviate many problems and issues associated with large breasts.

INCORRECT POSTURE

Breasts that are extremely large can cause you to hunch or slump forward. The excess weight of large breasts can make it difficult to remain standing or sitting with the correct posture. By relieving the weight from the front of your body, you will be able to stand up straighter. Improved posture not only enhances your spinal health, but it also makes you look taller.

PAIN

Breasts that have excessive tissue can cause pain both under the breasts and in your back. Excess tissue can begin to sag, causing more weight to pull your back and shoulders downward. With a breast reduction, you can alleviate the pain that has been plaguing you.

DECREASE IN ACTIVITY

Having large breasts can make physical activity tough to endure. Any activity that requires up and down movement, such as running, horseback riding, or even dancing, can be so painful that you avoid the activity altogether. If you find yourself avoiding activities that you used to love or deciding not to try new activities, then breast reduction surgery may be something you should consider.

DIFFICULTY FINDING CLOTHING

Large breasts can make it difficult to find clothing that not only fits well but that makes you feel good about the way you look. Bras to fit large breasts can be difficult to find in stores, requiring custom purchases that may be expensive. Shirts that fit well around your waist or your arms may not fit around your breasts. Large breasts can make shopping discouraging and costly, if not downright impossible. By reducing the size of your breasts, you will finally be able to shop with ease.

A breast reduction will provide you with immediate relief. By removing the excess tissue, your breasts will weigh less and be in better proportion to your body. Above all else, you will be able to live free of pain and discomfort.
