When you think of breast reduction, the first thing that probably comes to mind is the obvious—getting a smaller cup size. But the truth is, breast reduction can be so much more than just a way to get a more manageable and comfortable size. These five perks are just some of the added benefits that this common breast enhancement procedure has to offer.

1. You Usually Get a Lift, Too

Since a breast reduction inherently involves removing excess breast tissue, most of these procedures also include a breast lift. This technique also removes the resulting excess skin, as well as repositions your breasts to a higher, more balanced position on your chest wall. The result is a firmer and more youthful look and feel that’s in proportion with the rest of your natural curves.

When your breast reduction and lift are wrapped up into one procedure, you also don’t have to worry about extra recovery time or the added costs of a second surgery down the road.

2. Add Asymmetry Correction

Nearly all women have some amount of breast asymmetry, but for some, this problem is much more pronounced. If this is the case for you, talk to your plastic surgeon about adding asymmetry correction to your breast reduction wish list.

During your breast enhancement procedure, your plastic surgeon should be able to create a more symmetrical and balanced aesthetic based on your goals. You can discuss your size preferences during your consultation, so your plastic surgeon can make one breast smaller or larger to match that goal.

3. Areola Reduction Is a Thing

If you plan to breastfeed in the future, you may want to wait on areola reduction.

Many women with larger breasts also have larger areolas that they’d like to scale back during their breast reduction procedure. This can create a more balanced and proportional look to match your new breast size.

If areola reduction is something you’d like to consider, let your plastic surgeon know during your consultation. He or she can then plan your breast reduction to accommodate this added benefit.

4. Banish Back Pain

One of the most common problems that women with larger chests face is ongoing back, neck or shoulder pain caused by the constant downward pressure of their breasts. For some women, pain is so severe that it stops them from participating in certain activities, such as playing sports, running or biking.

If you’re experiencing pain or discomfort caused by the size of your breasts, a breast reduction procedure could be an appropriate solution. A good indication that you might benefit from this procedure would be if you tend to notice red indentations on your shoulders where your bra straps hit. This would be a sign that the weight of your breasts may be affecting your back, neck, shoulders and posture.

5. Update Your Wardrobe

In addition to keeping you from doing certain activities, oversized breasts can also limit your clothing choices. Some styles of clothing and lingerie are only available in smaller sizes. Plus, some of the latest clothing trends like sheer see-through tops and plunging necklines don’t achieve the same subtle effect with very large breasts.

With your new size, you can treat yourself to an updated wardrobe complete with all the cuts and styles you’ve always wanted to try.
