Many women with overly large breasts complain of back soreness. Recently, Reuter’s News service reported that Dolly Parton had to cancel her tour due to back pain. The reason given in the article indicated that the pain was induced by having to perform on stage for extended periods of time. Dolly said “Hey, you try wagging these puppies around a while and see if you don’t have back pain.” Performing a concert tour is quite a feat for anybody, but at age 62, that extra weight is beginning to slow Dolly down.
Thousands of well-endowed women are in the same predicament. While not necessarily performing concert tours, day-to-day activities are a struggle and cause considerable discomfort. At this stage in Dolly’s career, she probably would not benefit financially from breast reduction surgery, but that option is available to other women who suffer similarly.
Back pain occurs when leaning backwards is continuously compensating for the extra weight in front. This puts tremendous stress on the back muscles supporting the spine, which is always trying to maintain equilibrium. The constant minor adjustments of back muscles wear them out and weaken them, especially as we age. A qualified plastic surgeon can perform breast reduction surgery to reduce the weight of the breasts and offer relief to sore back muscles. A skilled doctor using today’s technology will be able to reduce the weight of the breast but still ensure an attractive and proportional figure.
