Yes, breast reduction surgery can help alleviate back pain. Large breasts can put a significant strain on a woman’s body, particularly the back, neck, and shoulders. This strain can lead to chronic discomfort, pain, poor posture, and even skeletal deformities.

A study published in “Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery,” the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, found that breast reduction surgery was followed by significant improvement in all four areas studied: pain in the breast, neck, back, and shoulders.

Another study published in the “Journal of Physical Therapy Science” found that women who underwent reduction mammoplasty showed a significant decrease in back pain and improvement in quality of life.

However, it’s important to note that while many women find relief from back pain after breast reduction surgery, results can vary. Therefore, it is crucial to have an open and honest discussion with your healthcare provider about your symptoms, expectations, and any potential risks or complications associated with the surgery.
