Boobs Too Big? Is Breast Reduction surgery right for you?

Signs You Need a Breast Reduction

Have you ever thought, “My boobs are too big, my back hurts! My boobs are too big, the thought of running makes me cringe”? If you have, you’re not alone!

If you have large boobs that are impacting your comfort, wellness and even causing you pain, it might be time to do something about it. For thousands of women worldwide, large breasts can mean a daily struggle.

We get it: boobs that are too big can mean that oftentimes simple things such as standing for a long time, picking up a game of volleyball, or getting a blouse to button up can be uncomfortable and downright painful.  If this sounds familiar, you might need to consider breast reduction surgery.

Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, offers some amazing benefits that will provide relief to your aches and pains while maintaining an attractive cleavage.


Overly large breasts can cause back pain, neck pain, rashes, numbness, and even headaches. If you’re unsure whether you should get a breast reduction or not, let’s go over a list of signs that could indicate you’d be the perfect candidate for reduction mammoplasty.

  • Your cup size is DD or larger, and instead of rejoicing about it, you cringe at the thought of going bra shopping or trying to fit into clothes.
  • The overall size and shape of your breasts make you constantly self-conscious.
  • The size or position of your breasts limits your physical activity.
  • Your breasts are affecting your body posture due to them feeling too heavy.
  • You get rashes under the fold of your breasts.
  • The size or weight of your breasts is causing you any type of pain: from neck to your lower back, or your breasts themselves.

If you are experiencing any of this, it might be a sign that you could greatly benefit from breast reduction surgery.


Extra reasons to get Breast Reduction

Many of the symptoms and signs of having overly large boobs are certainly “manageable” with things such as heat packs and sports bras with extra support. But at some point, if your bust size is becoming something you have to deal with every day, you need to treat the root cause.

Beyond the pain and the awkwardness, living with breasts that are just too big and heavy for your body frame is a serious thing that can lead to more medical concerns.

The benefits a breast reduction surgery offer are unparalleled when it comes to vanishing chronic problems.  If it ultimately benefits your overall quality of life, what more reasons do you need?


How does Breast Reduction work?

When you’re ready for your surgery, you’ll first have an extensive consultation with your surgeon to discuss what’s bothering you, a size you’d be happy with and the type of incisions available. During the planning stages, your surgeon can use Vectra 3D imaging to show you the changes you can expect. You’ll both discuss everything from general doubts, prepping for surgery, the breast size your body can support, and pain management for your recovery time.

On the day of the surgery, you’ll be put under general anesthesia, and your doctor will begin by making the incisions on both your breasts. Even when you get breast reduction surgery, you will retain an attractive cleavage, since the surgeon removes excess skin, glandular tissue, and fat mostly from the lower portion of your breasts.

If needed, you can also reduce the size of the areola and adjust the position of the nipple, resulting in perky and younger-looking breasts.


What can I expect after Breast Reduction surgery? How will I look after?

A lot of patients worry that after undergoing breast reduction surgery, they’ll lose their attractive cleavage or feminine shape. Let us calm your nerves and assure you that you won’t. This surgery is designed with you in mind.

  • Aesthetic results: You’ll have nice-sized, young looking boobs. Yes, an attractive and full cleavage is a possibility after breast reduction.
  • Recovery time: After having your breast reduction surgery, it’s important that you take care of yourself. You’ll need to take some time off work, an average of 7 to 10 days, depending on the type of work that you do. You’ll also need to take a break from exercise and other strenuous activities for a couple of months.  


Should I get a Breast Reduction?

If the size of your breasts is interfering with your quality of life and you have been doing research about your options, you’ll know when you’re ready. This is a deeply personal decision that should fit with your goals and medical needs.

To help, you can always interview surgeons, ask for before and after pictures of past patients, and decide if it’s a good time for you to take time off from your hectic schedule.


How to get Breast Reduction at an affordable price?

Even though having overly large breasts is a real physical and emotional problem, most insurance companies consider breast reduction surgery an elective procedure, not eligible for coverage. Paying 10,000 or more dollars up front makes the surgery out of reach for most, unless you consider going abroad. At VIDA Wellness and Beauty Center, located in Tijuana, we offer affordable prices for your breast reduction surgery while providing you the best level of healthcare service you’ve ever experienced.

If you feel that your excessively large breasts make you uncomfortable in social situations or when performing physical activities, perhaps it’s time to consider breast reduction surgery.
