While many women turn to breast augmentation to increase their breast size, others struggle with large breasts that, in some cases, can become a real physical burden. Large breasts can lead to neck, shoulder, and back pain, as well as a skin irritation on the underside of the breasts. As you age, changes in the skin elasticity leads to sagging breasts.
While exercise can help to tone the underlying muscle and weight loss can help reduce breast tissue, the only real way to dramatically decrease your breast size and increase perkiness is to have a breast reduction. Breast reduction benefits include reduced pain and discomfort, as well as improved self-confidence.
Exercise Can Help You Tone and Maintain Smaller and Perkier Breasts
Exercise has many health benefits, including weight loss. When it comes to reducing your breast size, dropping a few pounds can help make a difference. You can help reduce your weight through cardio workouts such as swimming or jogging.
In addition to cardio exercises, activities such as push-ups and weight training can help tone and tighten the muscle under your breasts. While these activities can provide minimal breast size reduction, they will likely not help you achieve the reduction you desire.
Unfortunately, women with larger breasts may also have difficulty exercising as the excess size and weight of the breasts can get in the way or cause pain. Reducing the size of your breasts with a breast reduction can reduce that pain and make it easier for you to exercise and maintain a healthy weight.
A Breast Reduction is More Than Just Cosmetic
A breast reduction is more than a simple aesthetic change for many women. Breast reduction surgery allows the surgeon to remove excess fat, tissue and skin from the breasts, resulting in a reduced breast size and perkier appearance. While it is a big decision to have surgery, reports show that over 95% of women are highly satisfied with their breast reduction procedure and would choose to do it again.
