When people think about breast procedures, they tend to believe they are done for only aesthetic purposes. When it comes to breast reduction surgery, a lot of women choose to undergo the procedure as a way to improve their quality of life because their large breasts are a source of chronic back or neck pain.

Large Breasts Can Place Your Body Under a Lot of Strain

Some women have breasts that are simply too large for their natural frame. While this may not seem like an issue, it is important to remember that breasts are heavy. The weight of all that breast tissue can place a large amount of strain on your frame. In fact, many women with disproportionately large breasts experience muscle pain in their back, shoulders, and neck. Often, women can get grooves in their shoulders from wearing heavily reinforced bras and rashes under their breasts.

Large breasts can also make it hard to perform normal tasks. Some women find it difficult to bend over because of the weight of their breasts and some walk hunched over and have poor posture from the extra weight. Others may find jogging and running to be incredibly uncomfortable, even if they are wearing a sports bra.
