If you are unhappy with the size of your large breasts, you may find that breast reduction in Chicago is the right procedure for you. You may have struggled with very large breasts ever since puberty hit, and you may have spent years trying to hide them, find undergarments and clothes to fit them and deal with others’ rude comments. With breast reduction surgery, you can deal with all of these concerns in one procedure and discover breasts that are the right size and shape for you.
Your Breasts Make You Physically Uncomfortable
Many women in Chicago have large breasts. In fact, the average cup size today is a 36C, and some companies report even higher average cup sizes than this. Breast size is rising in America for a variety of reasons, and this may impact you in your daily life. While many women have above average breast sizes, some may have breasts that are so large that they cause them physical discomfort. Large breasts can hang painfully from the chest wall, causing discomfort in the chest. Plus, they can pull on your neck, shoulders and upper back, leading to poor posture and back pain. You may even have painful marks on your shoulders from your bra straps.
Your Large Breasts Negatively Impact Your Everyday Life
Rather than causing you to feel your feminine side more acutely, your breasts may actually keep you from enjoying some of your favorite things. You may find it difficult or impossible to fit into most clothing sold in department stores. When you do find a dress or a shirt that fits your bust, it may be too large around your abdomen or your hips, creating an unflattering look. In addition, very large breasts can make it difficult to work out regularly. Even regular activities, such as reaching something on the ground, jumping or climbing stairs, can become too difficult with large breasts.
Your Breasts Impact Your Perception of Yourself
Large breasts can make you feel self-conscious rather than beautiful. If you find yourself trying to hide your breasts with your arms or with your clothes, you may want to consider reducing them to a smaller size. This may be especially true if you have faced a great deal of taunting from others over them.
Of course, you should have an honest discussion with our surgeon before deciding on a breast reduction procedure. However, many women have experienced great results both physically and emotionally from breast reduction surgery.
