Every woman’s body is different and will develop in different ways. Some women may feel that their breasts are too small for their body, while others may be fully satisfied with their breast size.
Many women have breasts that are disproportionately large, which can be a source of pain and discomfort. The excess weight of their breasts places a significant amount of strain on their bodies and can prevent them from comfortably performing normal activities.
Women with disproportionately large breasts frequently experience joint and muscle pain and stiffness in their shoulders, neck, and back. The areas underneath the breasts have an increased risk of developing rashes, chafing, and irritation. Disproportionately large breasts can also make running and other physical activities difficult or painful.
Breast-reduction surgery can be performed to bring balance to the proportions of the body and to relieve the stress caused by the weight of disproportionately large breasts. If your breasts are causing you discomfort or hindering your life, contact our office to schedule a consultation for breast reduction with board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brian Joseph.
