For many females, having overly large breasts can come with a host of physical challenges, pain-related issues, and concerns about personal appearance. Not all women want or appreciate having big breasts, and their reasons are as varied as the number of bra sizes now available.

Women with overly large breasts often have problems exercising vigorously,sleeping comfortably, shopping for clothes that support and fit properly over the bust, and self-image.

For a long time large breasted women suffered in silence because of excruciating back pain, sore shoulders, poor posture, as well as rashes and headaches, not to mention being made the target of sexist remarks and jokes just for having a big bosom.

Nowadays,breast-size surgery is commonplace and breast surgery techniques are very advanced, giving females the opportunity to control the size and shape of their breasts. Women with large breasts can now opt to have breast reduction surgery.

Common problems females with large breasts experience include:

  • Periodic or chronic pain in the neck, back and shoulders
  • Poor posture, as well as the inability to exercise/do daily chores comfortably
  • Shoulder grooves or deep indentations in the shoulders from bra straps
  • Under-boob sweat or sweat rash (i.e., intertrigo: a yeast condition infection)
  • Nerve fibre compression or breast numbness
  • Shortness of breath (i.e., weight of excess breast tissue constricts diaphragm movement)
  • Chronic headaches or migraines
  • Lack of sleep or poor sleep
  • Skin chafing due to tight or improperly fitted bras

Beyond these physical health issues, big boobs can have a negative effect on self-esteem and self-confidence. The psychological implications of overly large breasts can lead to body dysmorphia and depression.    

Having a breast reduction can help alleviate and eliminate many of these physical and psychological issues. To find out if you are a suitable candidate for breast tissue reduction, breast reshaping, or breast lifting, book a breast surgery consultation through our website.  

Causes: Large Breasts

The most common reasons for having larger breasts are genetics and hormones. Some females (and some males) are just genetically predisposed to having fuller breasts. This is something you inherit from your parents. When it comes to the influence of hormones, during puberty females develop their breasts as oestrogen (i.e., estrogen) increases in the body. Hormone levels also play a role in breast size during pregnancy and while breastfeeding.

Besides genetics and hormonal changes, weight gain has a big influence on breast size and shape. Because extra body weight affects breast tissue, gaining weight will increase the fatty tissue in this area of the body, and your boobs will most likely get bigger as a result.

In very rare cases, large breasts can be caused by gigantomastia, or breast hypertrophy; this condition is caused by excessive breast tissue growth. Females with gigantomastia will often experience rapid and disproportionate breast growth.

Part of being a woman means that your breasts will likely continue to change throughout your life, which is totally normal. Breast size changes can be influenced by the many hormonal and body weight fluctuations females experience during a whole lifetime (i.e., puberty, pregnancy, childbirth, perimenopause, menopause). But if having overly large breasts is a problem for you, then you should consider a breast reduction.
