The cause of back pain in the majority of women is due to having naturally large breasts. Having a breast reduction due to back pain is one of the solutions that many consider. The question is whether it can actually help the symptoms of large breasts such as neck and back pain. This vlog helps to explore breast reduction surgery in more detail and then look into whether it’s effective to have breast reduction due to back pain.
Breast reduction surgery involves the process of reducing the breast tissue, tightening the excess skin once the tissue is removed and elevating the nipple. How much tissue is removed depends on where the nipple lies on the inframammary fold. In order to provide an aesthetically pleasing result, the nipple needs to be placed around the inframammary fold after breast reduction due to back pain has taken place. This also applies to the lift that needs to be produced to push the breasts to a firmer position. If the nipple is placed relatively low on the breasts near the fold, they may require a further lift.
An example case study is provided which shows the patient’s nipple appearing quite low on the breasts, below the inframammary fold. As explained, when the nipple is elevated, the skin is tightened to allow the breasts to look more aesthetically pleasing. In this case study, a significant amount of breast tissue is removed and having a breast reduction due to back pain helped to reduce the symptoms of back pain and reduce them greatly for the patient.
It’s worth advising that it’s not 100% guaranteed neck and back pain will be reduced but it can be a popular solution for many patients.
