Many people consider breast reduction surgery to be a purely cosmetic procedure. This is true for those women who are unhappy with the imbalanced look of their body portions. However, there are many women with disproportionately large breasts who pursue breast reduction surgery for medical reasons.
Large and heavy breasts can place a lot of strain on the muscles and joints that support them. Women with breasts that are too large for their body will frequently experience pain in their shoulders, neck, and back. The area under the breasts is also prone to developing rashes that can be very irritating and uncomfortable.
