Home Breast Enhancements The Difficulties of Having Disproportionately Large Breasts

August 7, 2017

When it comes to the size of your breasts, bigger is not always better. Having breasts that are too large for your body can cause a number of physical and aesthetic issues. Women with breasts that are naturally too large for their body may find that it is difficult to find outfits that fit and can experience physical pain due to the strain their breasts place on their body.

If the breasts are too heavy, they can place a lot of stress on the joints and muscles used to support them. The muscles of the neck, back, and shoulders can become severely sore due to the strain from the excess weight of the breasts. Some women may find that their larger breasts make it difficult to perform everyday tasks or engage in physical activities like running.

Women suffering from the issues caused by having disproportionately large breasts can greatly benefit from a breast reduction procedure. Plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Emmett can sculpt breasts with a size and shape that better complements the patient’s body. Contact us to schedule a consultation.
