Oh My Aching Back: The Spine Benefits of a Breast Reduction

Oh My Aching Back: The Spine Benefits of a Breast Reduction

by Natalie (SU)
Are you dealing with chronic upper back pain? And if you are and you’re pretty sure it’s because of the size of your breasts, how long have been thinking about doing something about it? Well, you’re not alone. Nearly 1 million women in America suffer from chronic symptoms related to large breasts. It’s not just back pain. They complain of neck and shoulder pain, a feeling of breast heaviness, numbness or tingling in their fingers and wrists, difficulty exercising, skin problems, and eventually posture problems from the constant strain of carrying such a heavy load. Many women don’t address it until prompted by their primary care doctor, but there is no reason to suffer in silence.

Losing a significant amount of weight can be an accomplishment to be proud of, as well as giving yourself the gift of a healthier body. Becoming healthy and being proud of the skin you are in, can help your confidence and self-esteem soar. Unfortunately, for many people, that excitement and that moment when they step on the scale and see their goal weight can be short lived. Instead of seeing all the amazing progress they have made, when they look in the mirror all they can see is the excess skin that has been left behind.

Preparing for Vaginoplasty

Preparing for Vaginoplasty

by Stephanie Meadows
As women age, they go through certain life experiences and changes, such as vaginal childbirth and hormonal changes, and their pelvic and vaginal muscles can become loose over time. Sometimes, patients often voice their concern to their doctor about when they have intercourse that having an orgasm becomes difficult due to lack of friction and tightness. In other words, age and other factors can cause the vagina to stretch, become discolored, be uncomfortable, and cause the skin to sag.
