The weight of excessively large breasts puts intense pressure on the back, shoulder, and neck, leading to fatigue, poor posture, muscle strain, and pain. In such situations, breast reduction surgery is a fantastic solution for eliminating chronic pain associated with heavy breasts.

Besides having excessively huge breasts, low-hanging or sagging breasts are also a common cause of discomfort. Getting breast lift surgery is an effective way of resolving the continuous discomfort due to sagging breasts, helping to dramatically improve a patient’s quality of life. 

A breast lift can be performed alone or combined with a breast reduction surgery (for excessively large breasts) to maximize results and comfort.

Common Problems Caused by Sagging Breasts (Breast Ptosis)

Over time, a woman’s natural breasts change due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, gravity, and aging. As a result, the breasts lose elasticity, shape, and firmness, causing them to sag.

When breasts have a considerable amount of sag below the crease, it can be challenging to exercise or get daily tasks done. For many women, especially those with larger breasts, significant sagging can cause the rest of the upper body to pull inward, leading to slouching and muscle stress, which brings about soreness, stiffness, and pain. 

Along with these limitations, sagging/pendulous breasts can also create skin concerns such as chafing, rashes, and skin infections which can be challenging to manage.

Why Should I Consider Breast Lift Surgery?

A breast lift procedure removes excess skin and helps reposition the breasts position to create a more youthful, perky contour. When breasts are more balanced and uplifted, they redistribute the weight across the chest, alleviating the discomfort. Flaccid saggy breasts that hinder an active and fulfilling life will longer be an issue of concern.

Further, with the excess skin gone, many patients who have struggled with painful skin irritation due to loose skin rubbing against each other are finally able to find the much-needed relief. And with firmer-looking breasts, you will feel comfortable in your body and more confident in swimwear and different outfits. 

It should, however, be noted that a breast lift alone may not be enough to alleviate pain and discomfort for patients with overly large breasts.
