Breast Reduction Improves Quality Of Life


A recent medical study shows Breast Reduction Surgery to decrease pain and significantly improve the quality of life. Large, heavy breasts can give women of all backgrounds and ages a great deal of physical and psychological pain. Excessive breast size will weigh a woman down and throw off her center of gravity and her spine alignment. The result is a wide range of health problems, including chronic pain in the back, neck, and shoulder, strained and overworked muscles, headaches, skin rashes, sagging breasts, and stretch marks, as well as low self-esteem and general body image dissatisfaction. Studies have also shown that women dealing with this form of physical pain equate their symptoms with chronic pain, such as arthritis, hip pain, and low back pain, to other medical conditions.

Many women sufferings from these physical and emotional problems are looking for breast reduction, also known as mammoplasty reduction. Not only does this common surgical technique produce a natural breast shape that is firmer and more proportionate to the body, but the overall quality of life of a woman can also be enhanced. Recent medical studies found that reduction mammoplasty resulted “in significant improvement in the quality of life and a decrease in pain and breast-associated symptoms.”

The research analyzed and surveyed 82 female patients suffering from symptomatic breast hypertrophy to gain access to the breast size reduction efficacy of surgery. By alleviating the physical symptoms caused by full, heavy breasts, this procedure not only offered great relief of pain but also greatly relieved or removed a wide range of debilitating physical symptoms such as shortness of breath, skin irritation, and poor posture. “The report also states that” the influence of mammoplasty reduction intervention was equivalent to that of hip replacement and more than knee complete joint replacement.

The advantages of breast reduction are highly beneficial, as shown by this scientific medical research as well as many others.
