Five Signs You Could Benefit from a Breast Reduction

Large Breasts Negatively Affect Many Women in the US

Medical experts estimate extremely large breasts affect almost one million women today. The physiological effects are present and affect these women without restraint.

These women, with this condition, commonly notice back and neck pain, along with some numbness in their fingers or hands. This condition has even been linked to migraine headaches, causing shortness of breath, and just sitting at a desk at the workplace.

Typical Symptoms of Extreme Breast Size Effects

Often women experience pain for some unusual reasons.

  • Using a smaller bra cup size than they need.
    According to Web MD, many women “squeeze” their breasts into a “D” or “DD” cup when they really need an “E,” “F,” or “G” size. If women need the bigger size, they may be creating their own health problems with their huge breasts.
  • Many women experience pain because of their variance from normal female anatomical bodies.
    Since it is normal for human females to get a bit heavier as they age, their shoulders exhibit “forward rolls.” This extra weight and natural shoulder roll forward, puts some pressure in the thoracic region. Their ribs and shoulder blades, along with the many surrounding nerves often respond to this compression rather negatively (producing pain).While this typically happens to women who have a normal anatomical structure, this pressure often generates pain in women with extremely large breasts. This pain comes from the natural compression of the nerves noted above. If women do not address this pain, over time, their shoulders will pull further forward, leading to more extreme discomfort.
