At 27, Talia Derby decided that breast reduction surgery was the right choice for her. She had struggled with large breasts since she was 13. Her ample bosom even garnered her the nickname, “Busty Talia.” Ten years in the making, Derby finally met with a plastic surgeon and scheduled the surgery that she had so long considered.
Derby is not alone in her struggle with a large chest. Women often come to Specialists in Plastic Surgery hoping to reduce the size of their breasts. According to American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, over 100,000 women underwent breast reduction in 2015. While the decision to undergo breast surgery is unique to each woman, many who do choose breast reduction surgery can relate to Derby’s reasons.
“Bye bye massive boobs and back pain”
Large and poorly proportionate breasts can cause a woman to experience extreme physical pain. While breast reduction surgery is often considered for aesthetic reasons, just as many women choose to reduce their breasts for physical reasons. By reducing the size (and weight) of the breasts, a woman is relieved of the added stress that her breasts place on her neck, back, and spine.
“It’s really hard to stay active with that big of boobs”
Large breasts also interfere with what activities a woman can participate in. “Hiking—I absolutely love it,” says Derby. Before her reduction, “I could only go up a mile up a mountain before I was done.” Like Derby, many women find their breasts limiting—often causing them to miss out on their favorite activities.
“Hello to having boobs that match my petite frame”
The greatest benefit of breast reduction surgery is the confidence that it can restore in a woman. So many of our patients feel more comfortable in their body and with their appearance post-reduction. Women find that work, everyday tasks, and finding properly fitting clothes are all easier after their breast reduction.
