Breast Reduction is More Common Than You Might Think

Sep 8, 2008
Something that women always aspire to do is look the best that they can. Generally, women want a shapely figure, which usually includes large breasts. There are many teenage girls and women who lament the fact that they have small boobs, but what about women who have boobs that are too big?

Believe it or not, there are many women who are actually seeking out breast reduction. It's one thing to have nice, perky breasts, but it's quite another to have breasts that are constantly getting in your way. Thus, for women who are extremely self-conscious about their breasts, they should consider possibly getting breast reduction surgery.

It's important to note that breast reduction surgery is only used as a last-ditch effort so to speak. Breasts usually are the areas in which fat is stored naturally, and in some cases a healthier diet and more exercise can actually reduce breast size. Breast reduction is, thus, only suggested for specific cases.

Many women end up with larger breasts because of genetics. All a woman has to do is look at the women in her family to get a general idea of where her breasts are going. Of course, breast sizes also have to do with a woman's proportions. For example, a woman who has a DD cup and is only 5'2" will look much different than a woman who has the same breast size and is 5'11"

So, what are the signs that breasts might need to be reduced? Well, first of all there's the issue of self-esteem. If a woman constantly finds herself wanting to hide her breasts behind baggy clothing, that's definitely not a good sign. A woman should be able to embrace her curves, not hide from them.

Another sign is the overall body type of the woman. If the breasts are way out of proportion with the rest of the woman's body (usually a skinny woman with large breasts), then that is also a clear sign that the breasts need to be reduced.

Then, of course, there are the physical signs. A woman who has too much weight in her breasts will have difficulty breathing, experience frequent back pain, and never find bras that fit right. Another key sign that the breasts are too large for a woman's frame is that deep grooves will form on the shoulders from the bra straps.

While celebrities generally seek out bigger breasts, there have been a few celebrities who have had their breasts reduced. Probably the most famous example is that of Soleil Moon Frye, who played Punky Brewster is the popular 80s television show of the same name.

If you are a woman who is thinking about getting your breasts reduced, make sure that you find a doctor who is certified and specializes in this area. During the consultation, be sure to discuss your prior medical history. The ideal candidates for this kind of procedure should be in good health. The proper planning and research will lead to the best results.
