Could Your Breasts Be The Cause of Your Back Pain?
Women with oversized breasts often experience problematic physical symptoms. Breast-related pain is caused by excessive breast tissue, which can lead to upper-back or neck pain and create an abnormal body alignment. When a woman's shoulders roll forward due to large, heavy breasts, it can cause continuous tension on the back and neck muscles. Women in the Long Island, NY area turn to breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, to be a life-changing procedure.

Can heavy breasts cause back pain?
For some women, oversized breasts can literally be a pain in the neck. The weight of heavy breasts can pull a woman forward, creating muscle strain on the neck and shoulder area or compressing nerves in the upper back, causing painful symptoms. A patient's weight can also be another factor that contributes to aches and pains in the upper back and neck area. When women gain weight, their breasts become more extensive, increasing the stress on the spine area. The result is an ongoing struggle with pain and discomfort, leaving women to consider breast reduction surgery for back pain to get relief.
Will breast reduction surgery for back pain help?
It isn't always glamorous to have a large bust size. Many women with oversized, cumbersome breasts cannot enjoy an active lifestyle or engage in certain activities. It can lead to breathing issues, trouble sleeping at night, and other ongoing problems, like constant neck or back pain. Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, removes breast fat and tissue to reshape and reduce the breasts' overall size, giving women a more proportionate-looking profile. Smaller breasts can eliminate constant, debilitating back and neck pain. Breast reduction surgery can be a life-changing procedure, improving a woman's physical and psychological health.
Will I need a breast reduction and lift?
The extra weight of large breasts can lead to aches and pain, limited mobility, poor posture, and more. The main goal of breast reduction surgery is to give women instant relief from painful discomfort and other issues associated with oversized breasts, with the additional benefit of enjoying a more pleasing, contoured profile. Breast reduction surgery reduces each breast by size and volume, eliminating an appropriate amount of fat, skin, and breast tissue. A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, removes excess skin and raises the breasts to a more contoured, youthful appearance. While a breast lift and breast reduction are two different cosmetic procedures, they are often done simultaneously to give Long Island, NY patients optimal results.
Abnormal body alignment can cause breast-related shoulder, neck, and back pain due to heavy, large breasts. Oversized breasts can pull a woman's upper body forward, causing continuous tension on the upper back and neck muscles. Breast reduction surgery can be life-changing in many ways for women to relieve painful symptoms and feel more confident about how they look. Often, breast reduction surgery for back pain may be considered a medical procedure instead of a cosmetic need, qualifying patients on a case-by-case basis for possible insurance coverage.
