Breast Reduction Surgery for Back Pain | Gartner Plastic Surgery

Breast Reduction For Back Pain

Going through with plastic surgery is a huge decision and one that can too often be made for the wrong reasons.  Your plastic surgery should not only make you look good but make you feel good too.  Cosmetic surgery can do wonders for your self-esteem and relieve chronic pain.  Though many people augment their breasts to enlarge them, some require the opposite.  Naturally large breasts can place strains on your back that can result in debilitating pain over time. 

Can Large Breasts Be The Cause For Your Upper Back Pain?

Though what typically causes upper back pain is the strain on muscles and ligaments due to poor posture, having disproportionately large breasts can have the same effect.  The added weight to the front of your chest shifts your center of gravity forward, forcing your muscles and ligaments to work overtime to stay upright and well-postured.  Upper back pain isn’t the only issue, however, as large breasts place added pressures on bra straps that cause them to dig into the skin, causing discomfort.  As your body must adapt to so much added weight, it attempts to compensate by shifting pressures from one part of your spine to another, weakening that part heavily.

What Can You Do To Help?

Breast reduction is often seen as a last resort in cases of large breasts causing discomfort, and though it’s a big decision, breast reduction can be just the quick fix you’re looking for.  Though websites say that you can try any number of remedies from custom-fit bras to physical therapy, or even just taking a prescription pain reliever, taking time out of your day to do intensive physical therapy and making any type of drug use habitual, even an over-the-counter pain reliever seems ridiculous.  There must be a better way, and there is.

Why Breast Reduction for Back Pain?

Breast reduction is the only permanent and true fix for this problem.  Though the aforementioned remedies can certainly help lessen pain, they can’t fully and completely eradicate the problem.  Removing excess breast tissue is a one-time operation that will save you time, money, and pain in the future.

When it comes to your body, the only thing that should matter is that you feel good.  If large breasts are causing you chronic neck, shoulder, and/or back pain, talk to your doctor about the permanent solution of breast reduction.

How Long is Breast Reduction Recovery Time?

Our breast reduction procedures are both minimally invasive and scarring. The reason we call it a scarless breast reduction is because there will practically be no scar when it fully heals. After a breast reduction procedure for back pain, you should notice an improvement in your back/neck pain within a week. The breast reduction surgery itself will require a week of recovery time. Not only will the breast reduction help with your back pain, but it will also provide a cosmetic boost as well. With our breast reduction surgery, you will experience a perkier look, better breast shape, and even a breast lift!

How much is a Scarless Female Breast Reduction?

The price of a female breast reduction is dependant on your custom treatment plan, at Gartner Plastic Surgery we know just how tight those finances can be. For those with severe pain from naturally large breasts, the solution to wait to try to save up money might not be an option. Luckily, we offer financing for those who need it.
