Breast Reduction: Reasons and Risks

Breast reduction is another option for those who want to remove part of their breasts for various reasons. But before you make a final decision, it is better if you knew other angles about it, like the possible risks after the surgery.

If there is such thing as a breast augmentation, there is also what we call breast reduction, which is the opposite of augmentation.

This procedure has become popular over the years because many people have been seeking it despite the “need” of getting breasts augmented. Women from all over the world have sought breast reduction due to many various reasons.

Why Women Seek It?

Breast reduction reasons may be medical or even just related to comfort. You may need breast reduction if you:

  • Are embarrassed with how big your breasts are. Let’s face it; people with big breast get a lot of attention, especially when it’s summer time when people are obliged to wear swim suits at the beach.

  • Just want to feel more comfortable every day. Large breasts can result to neck and back pains. Maybe if they’re reduced a little, they may be more weight-friendly.
