Many women who have overly large, pendulous breasts suffer from both emotional and physical discomfort. Women who are self-conscious or embarrassed about their large breasts feel that their apparel options are limited, and may even avoid physical activities such as running or jumping that can be painful with oversized breasts.
Beyond the emotional impact and lifestyle limitations, many women suffer from chronic physical discomfort. Large breasts can cause skin issues such as rashes or chafing, and bra straps can irritate their shoulders creating painful skin indents. Large-breasted women may also experience chronic neck and back pain, and even postural issues, due to the weight of their breasts.
Women from all walks of life can suffer from the problems associated with overly large breasts, and this includes celebrities. Fortunately, there is relief available in the form of breast reduction surgery. Maryland Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Joseph Michaels discusses three famous women who benefited from this procedure.
The 17-year-old “Modern Family” star recently underwent breast reduction surgery that transformed her from a 32F cup size to a 34D. Winter had many struggles with her former breast size, from being passed over for age-appropriate roles to daily difficulties like needing her “Modern Family” costumes altered in order to accommodate her breasts. Winter worked with her doctor to determine the right size, and is extremely happy with her results.
Drew Barrymore first rose to fame as a child star in the 1982 classic “E.T. the Extra-Terrestrial.” Today, she owns a successful production company and continues to win awards for her acting. Barrymore underwent breast reduction surgery due to several complaints that are very common among women seeking this procedure: back pain, feeling self-conscious and disliking how heavy she looked in many items of clothing. After her breast reduction, Barrymore no longer feels uncomfortable, and states that she now really loves her body.
Actress and musician Queen Latifah suffered from back and shoulder pain for years due to her E to F cup size breasts. When she successfully lost weight in the early 2000s, she found that the size of her chest unfortunately did not decrease. Breast reduction surgery after weight loss is common, and Queen Latifah found that this procedure was an effective way to significantly reduce the discomfort she experienced.
