Will Breast Reduction Help With Back Pain?

If you have larger breasts, you may often experience chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain. This is a common symptom of having a large chest, as the weight of the breasts can place a significant strain on the upper portion of the body. Additionally, the weight can cause bra straps to dig into the shoulders, causing pain while walking, exercising, and – in some cases – even sleeping. If you’re interested in undergoing a breast reduction, you may have this question on your mind: “Will breast reduction help with my back pain?” Breast Reduction for Immediate Back Pain Relief The answer can come as an overwhelming relief, especially for women who have suffered from back and neck pain for years. Breast reduction not only helps with back pain, but many patients also feel an immediate sense of relief upon waking up from their surgical procedures.

Yes, you read that right – the relief can be immediate and palpable! The reason why is simple: the surgery is designed to reduce the size of the breasts in such a way as to preserve its natural appearance. That means extra glandular tissue, fat, and even excess skin can be removed to produce the new breast shape. Some patients may have their nipples repositioned. Upon waking up from surgery, patients often remark that they feel a noticeable difference in how light their chest feels. The relief only intensifies through the healing process, where swelling and bruising begin to disappear. Final results can usually be seen about six to eight weeks after the breast reduction procedure.
