Plastic Surgery’s Did You Know? The Benefits of Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery helps reduce the symptoms of neck, back and shoulder pain that large hanging breasts create. Much like a rope around a women’s neck onto which are attached several lb. sacks, the continuous pull of the weight of the breasts causes musculoskeletal pain from the neck into the back. But the amount of breast tissue weight removed during surgery is not the only reason these painful symptoms are relieved. Much of the relief comes from the accompanying breast lift or resuspension of the remaining breast tissue back up onto the chest and off the stomach area, eliminating the downward pulling effect. This is why every breast reduction also includes a breast lift as well.
