While large breasts might be the object of envy for some women, there’s no denying that large breasts offer one significant drawback that smaller breasts do not: they can interfere with athletic performance.
As many women can attest, large breasts often get in the way when playing sports, exercising or performing vigorous activities of daily life. Because of the challenges that large breasts can provide, breast reductions to improve athletic performance are a common sight in plastic surgery offices across the world.
Can you imagine how much more willing you’d be to exercise if your breasts didn’t cause you so much trouble? A breast reduction can make a huge difference in your ability to be comfortably active. Sports that were once too awkward to even attempt can become both possible and enjoyable. And not just that—other sports that require challenging contortions (such as rock climbing) become much easier without your large breasts getting in the way.
Physical awkwardness isn’t the only barrier keeping busty women away from activity. Some women may feel too self-conscious about their large breasts and feel uncomfortable participating, especially in sports that require form-fitting or revealing clothing (like swimming or yoga). For these women, a breast reduction can help them stay out of the spotlight and free from the questioning gazes of strangers.
If you’ve experienced feelings of frustration or felt held back by your large breast size, a breast reduction may be able to help. Reducing your breast size can lower your discomfort, improve your self-confidence, and allow you to enjoy your active lifestyle to the fullest.
