Four Reasons To Get A Breast Reduction While You're Young

Health & Medical Blog

If you are unhappy with the size of your breasts, you may be thinking of getting a reduction. However, when you are young, other women don't always react positively when you tell them this news. They may encourage you to wait until you are older or not to worry so much about your appearance. Listen to what they have to say, but know that for many women, getting a breast reduction while young is the right choice. Here are four reasons this procedure just might be the right one for you.

1. Your back pain will ease.

When your breasts are too large, having to carry them around can be hard on your back. Why spend your youth in pain or having to wear a back brace? If you put off the procedure, you may do irreparable damage to your back or end up spending your 20s in the chiropractor's office. Have the surgery early, and you'll be more comfortable -- and with less assistance from pain relievers and back exercises.

2. You can be more active.

When you are young, staying fit is so important. Get plenty of exercise, and you will reduce your risk of heart disease and cancer. Plus, you will be more likely to stay active later in life if you get in shape now. It's hard to run, bike, or even walk when your breasts are too large and are weighing you down. Have them reduced early, and you can enjoy more years of comfortable exercise -- plus all the health benefits that come with it.

3. You'll look and feel better in clothing.

Are you tired of having to try on everything in the store before you find a top that fits? Your chest is one size, and your waist is another! You deserve better than to feel self-conscious in your clothing. With a reduction, you can fit clothing more easily, enabling you to have fun with fashion and feel confident in whatever you choose to wear.

4. You'll get better sleep.

Many women with large breasts struggle to find a comfortable sleeping position. And when you don't sleep well, it can impact every aspect of your life, from job performance to your social life. The sooner you have your reduction surgery, the sooner you can develop healthier sleep habits.

To learn more about breast reduction surgery and the benefits for young women, talk to your doctor.

Help Others Make Health Decisions when They Cannot

One day I was playing a game of basketball with a friend, and the friend I was playing ball with tripped and took a hard fall to the ground. He hit his head hard, but he insisted he was okay and just wanted to go home and take a nap. I knew in my heart that he was not thinking clearly, and I didn't feel right letting him go home. I talked him into letting me take him to the hospital, and after some tests, it was determined he had a bad concussion. The doctors told me that if I had let him go home and sleep, things could have taken a turn for the worse. I created this blog to remind everyone to look out for each other after injuries. Not everyone thinks clearly after a head injury, and just being a good friend could save a life.
