The 3 Reasons Women Opt for Breast Reduction Surgery


The idea of a woman undergoing breast reduction surgery may seem counterintuitive to many, especially with the popularity of breast augmentation and implants. While there is a solid population of women who would like to increase their bust size, there is also a group who, for various reasons, would like to reduce the size of their chests.

Below are three of the most common reasons women opt for breast reduction surgery.

  1. Pain
    Large breasts can be a blessing, but they can also be a curse. Ask any woman who has suffered from back, neck or shoulder pain due to an abnormally heavy chest. This issue can also result in poor posture if a woman finds that she is hunching or slouching.
  2. Discomfort
    Pain is a physical discomfort, but there are many women who are also made uncomfortable by the amount of stares they believe they receive due to their ample chest size. These women oftentimes receive unwanted comments, leery looks or inappropriate comments.
  3. Aesthetics
    Again, chest size is a personal choice. Many women would kill for breasts a cup size or two larger than their current pair. Others would kill for just the opposite. There is no right or wrong answer. It’s up to us to decide what the right size chest may be for our body, lifestyle and health. Women with larger breasts may also have more difficulties buying clothes. Everything from dresses to button-down shirts and even tank tops may fit incorrectly if a woman’s chest is disproportionate to the rest of her body.

Thankfully, large-busted women do not need to hide behind baggy clothes or custom-made bras. Those looking for a permanent fix have options, which Dr. Tenley Lawton is happy to examine with you. Call to schedule your consultation today.
