Breast too big

Too big breast is a medical condition that is characterized by overly large breasts. This condition can cause some physical and emotional problems for the woman suffering from it. Some of the most common problems associated with too big breasts include back pain, neck pain, headaches, skin irritation, and bra strap grooves. 

There are several treatment options available for women suffering from this condition, and the best course of treatment will vary depending on the woman's situation. Treatment options for big natural breasts can include lifestyle changes, medication, surgery, or a combination of these methods. Lifestyle changes that may help to reduce the size of breasts may include weight loss, and avoiding activities that put a strain on the back or neck. 

Symptoms of breast too big

Some of the common symptoms of big breast among women are as follows:

  • Discomfort or limited motion in the neck or shoulders
  • Grooves in the shoulder from bra straps
  • Skin irritation under the breasts
  • Headaches
  • Rashes or skin infections under the breasts due to moisture and bacteria buildup

Causes of breast too big

Macromastia: Macromastia is a medical condition characterized by the abnormal enlargement of breasts. This condition can affect both men and women but is most commonly seen in women. Many factors can contribute to the development of macromastia, including genetics, hormonal imbalances, obesity, and pregnancy.

The most common symptoms of macromastia include breast pain, neck pain, and back pain. In some cases, the excessive weight of enlarged breasts can cause posture problems and make it difficult to breathe and move freely.

There are several risks associated with macromastia, including pain, nerve damage, skin irritation, and infection. In some cases, the excessive weight of enlarged breasts can cause posture problems and make it difficult to breathe and move freely.

There is no one-size-fits-all treatment for macromastia. The best course of treatment will depend on the underlying cause of the condition. For example, if macromastia is caused by obesity, weight loss may be recommended. If hormonal imbalances are to blame, hormone therapy may be recommended. In some cases, surgery may be necessary to remove excess breast tissue.

Gigantomastia: Gigantomastia is a rare condition that results in excessively large or big breasts in women. The exact cause of gigantomastia is unknown, but it is thought to be the result of a combination of hormonal and genetic factors. Gigantomastia can occur at any age but is most common during puberty or pregnancy.

Gigantomastia can cause several physical and emotional problems. The excessive weight of the breasts can cause back pain, neck pain, and posture problems. The breasts may also make it difficult to breathe or sleep comfortably. In addition, gigantomastia can be a source of embarrassment and body image issues.

We recommend consulting with a doctor if you have any concerns about gigantomastia. Treatment options vary depending on the severity of the condition but may include surgery, weight loss, and hormone therapy. With proper treatment, most people with gigantomastia can live relatively normal lives.

Treatment options

Breast Reduction Surgery (Reduction Mammoplasty):

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to remove excess breast tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body. The goal of breast reduction surgery is to reduce pain and discomfort associated with excessively large breasts, as well as improve your ability to participate in physical activities.

During breast reduction surgery, the surgeon will make an incision around the areola (the dark area surrounding the nipple) and then cut vertically down the middle of the breast. The surgeon will then remove excess breast tissue, fat, and skin. If necessary, the surgeon may also reposition the nipples and areolas. The entire procedure typically takes 2 to 4 hours to complete.


Liposuction is a surgery that helps remove fat from the body. It can be used to help reduce the size of breasts. Liposuction is not a weight loss surgery, but it can help in reducing the size of breasts that are largely due to excess fat. If you are considering liposuction for breast reduction, be sure to discuss your options with a surgeon. The procedure takes a few hours and can be done with general anesthesia or local anesthesia. 

Recovery time is typically brief, but you will need to wear a compression garment for a few weeks following the surgery. Results are permanent, but you may need to have additional procedures to maintain your results.

On the whole, Liposuction is a good option for those who are looking for a permanent reduction in breast size. If you are considering this procedure, be sure to discuss your options with a qualified surgeon.
