Being well-endowed can be a good thing. However, there is such a thing as “too much of a good thing” when it comes to breast size. Overly large breasts can make it difficult to participate in activities such as sports and can make it challenging to find clothing that fits. Carrying overly large breasts can also negatively affect your posture and cause chronic back and shoulder pain. Lastly, overly large breasts can cause skin irritation and bruising at the location on the shoulder where bra straps dig into the skin. continue reading

Breast augmentation is a popular type of cosmetic surgery that can be used to change the size and shape of the breasts. Everyday, women with naturally small breasts elect to have them enlarged to make them more proportionate to the rest of their bodies, increase their confidence and enhance their overall appearance. Many women who have chosen to have this procedure find that shopping for clothes and wearing clothes, bathing suits and lingerie is a lot more fun and satisfying.
For many women with overly large breasts, breast reduction surgery can increase their self-esteem and confidence and make it easier for them to shop for and wear clothes. Many women who undergo breast reduction surgery find that they are now able to wear certain types of clothing that they stayed away from in the past. They are also now able to participate in sports and other activities that were once uncomfortable due to the size of their breasts. That freedom alone makes this surgery worthwhile for many women. However, for some women, breast reduction surgery is much more than simply a cosmetic solution. In some cases, breast reduction surgery is medically necessary.
