For the woman whose breasts are too heavy, causing neck, shoulder and back pain, breast reduction surgery offers relief. Is this cosmetic surgery?
Consider the plight of the woman whose breasts are too heavy for her to carry. Clothes are either busting at the seams across her bust, or way too big for the rest of her. Eye contact languishes as people's eyes trail south. Breast reduction surgery changes all this.
There's the neck, shoulder and back pain caused by the Heavyweights, the bras that bite deep into shoulders from the weighty task they perform. Breast reduction surgery for women whose breasts are too heavy doesn't sound like cosmetic surgery.
