Although in recent decades it has become very fashionable to have large breasts, this can be very problematic for some people. The main reason is because large breasts are often synonymous with chronic back, shoulder and neck pain, as well as other problems such as limited activity.

Reduction mammoplasty is a procedure that can have many benefits for people who have excess fat, tissue and skin in the breasts. This treatment is recommended for those who do not feel comfortable with their physical appearance or suffer from health problems due to the size of their breasts.

Which are the benefits of a breast reduction?

Breast reduction surgery can bring several benefits, as long as it is performed by expert hands. Among the main advantages are the following:

Higher self-esteem

Although this change does not happen overnight, in a short period of time an improvement in the patients’ self-esteem can be noticed. This will increase as the breasts swell down after breast reduction surgery.

The pain disappears

One of the most common ailments in people with large breasts is pain, because due to the excess weight the muscles are damaged. When breast surgery Tijuana is performed, the muscles feel more relaxed, so the pain in places such as the back, shoulders and neck begins to disappear.

As time goes by, the damaged nerves and muscles recover, so the tendency to hump the back also begins to disappear. As a result, patients feel better about their bodies and perceive themselves to be more aesthetically pleasing and youthful.

No more irritation

Rashes under the breasts are a very common condition in people with large, sagging breasts. This problem is usually chronic and in addition to causing physical irritation, it can cause other problems if the skin becomes infected or is not treated in the most appropriate manner.

Once the reduction mammoplasty is performed, the skin will begin to heal and if the recommendations are followed, the symptoms will disappear completely.

Being able to engage in activities
