Posture and Breast Reduction

  • Shoulders – Women can experience tremendous strain and pain in their shoulders as the weight of their breasts pulls down. With breast reduction, women can finally stand with their shoulders back and in the proper position.
  • Hunching – Another common issue with oversized breasts is hunching. This can happen from the weight pulling the chest down. But this can also be the result of women trying to hide their larger breasts because of shame and embarrassment.
  • Neck and Back Pain – With larger breasts, the neck and back muscles compensate to “pick up the slack” and can cause immense pain. By reducing the size of the breasts, neck and back muscles will get immediate relief.
