Could a Breast Reduction Be the Answer to My Back Pain?

Published on March 16, 2020

If you are experiencing constant back pain, large bust can be the reason. When your breasts are disproportionate with the rest of your body, the excess weight puts extensive pressure on your spinal cord. Having large breasts can make it difficult to have a good posture and may lead to spine deformity. Breast cup of size D and above can cause severe back pain and if not treated can lead to further complications like neck and shoulder pain.

A breast reduction surgery can eliminate your back pain completely.

Before the surgery, you have to consult a surgeon and be open and transparent to them about your medical history and your daily habits.

Before the surgery keep the following handy in your house which will aid in your recovery:

  • Lots of ice
  • Clean washcloth and hand towels
  • loose t-shirts and blouse.
  • special creams as recommended by the doctor.

The surgery will take around four hours and will be performed under general anesthesia. The surgeon will remove a portion of glandular tissue and excess fat from your breast. The newly loose skin will be tightened as such that it is perfectly proportional. The surgery will greatly improve your breast’s size and shape. After the surgery, you will not be allowed to do physical activity like lifting heavy items in the first week. After the first two weeks, light exercise and stretching can help you ease your muscles. Getting plenty of rest, consuming healthy food and staying hydrated will aid in a smooth recovery.
