can breast be reduced

Breast reduction surgery is a great way to reduce the size and weight of your breasts, which can improve your comfort, posture, and confidence.

Breast reduction is often recommended for women who have large breasts (also known as macromastia) or asymmetrical breasts that are disproportionate in size. In some cases, breast reduction can also be used to address pain caused by large breasts that make it difficult to exercise or even sleep comfortably.

Breast reduction may be an option if you have any of these conditions:

  • Shoulder pain
  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Headaches

Natural methods for reducing breast size

It is possible to reduce breast size with exercise and diet changes.

There are some natural options that may reduce breast size without surgery. Breasts contain mostly fat, so strategies that reduce overall body fat may work well.

The right method for reducing breast size depends on a person’s overall health and the reason for large breasts, which could include hormonal conditions or obesity.

People concerned about breast health may wish to see their doctor before making significant lifestyle changes.

The following natural remedies may help reduce breast size:

1. Diet

The breasts are mostly made up of adipose tissue, or fat. Losing body fat can reduce a person’s breast size.

People can lose body fat by using up more calories than they eat, and by eating a healthful diet. A low-calorie, highly nutritious diet can indirectly help to shrink breast tissue.

Focus on eating nutrient-dense foods that are low in calories. Fruits, vegetables, fatty fish, such as salmon, and lean meats, such as grilled chicken, can help a person feel full while still supporting healthy weight loss.

People who are breastfeeding or pregnant should talk to a doctor or midwife before trying to lose weight.

2. Exercise

Like diet, exercise can help a person lose body fat, which might also help reduce breast size over time.

Many people mistakenly believe that targeted exercises can burn fat in a specific area. While push-ups and other chest exercises will tone the arm and chest muscles, they will not directly remove fat from the breasts themselves. The key is to burn fat throughout the body.

Cardiovascular exercises that increase a person’s heart rate are highly effective at burning fat. Depending on health and fitness factors, people can try running, swimming, or taking brisk walks.

3. Reduce estrogen

Estrogen plays a key role in the development of breast tissue. So countering excess estrogen could reduce breast size, especially in people with hormonal imbalances.

Hormonal contraceptives contain estrogen and progesterone and can make a person’s breasts grow bigger. The effect usually goes away again once the person stops taking the medication.

Breasts come in all shapes and sizes. But the bigger your twins are, they can cause continuous tension on the shoulder, neck, and back muscles, leading to nagging pain. Large or heavy breasts pull your body forward all the time and literally get in the way of things we love doing. Not to forget, the bra strap marks at the end of the day, boob sweat, and even running is a pain! Heavy-breasted ladies crave leading a healthy lifestyle or being passionate about sports. Hence, many women consider breast reduction surgery to get rid of extra fat tissue from their twins. However, these simple exercises can help you reduce breast size at home!

To know more about these breast reduction workouts, HeallthShots spoke to Aditi Gupta, Premium Fitness Coach, Fittr

Gupta says, “The breast is the tissue overlying the chest (pectoral) muscles. A woman’s breasts are made of specialized tissue that produces milk (glandular tissue) as well as fatty tissue. The amount of fat around the area determines the size of your breast. Many go the surgical route but a natural breast reduction is also something that can be looked at, by following some simple exercises at home.”

What causes breasts to grow big?

Often breast size is determined by a mix of genetic and hormonal factors. One of the reasons is hormonal changes that can be the reason for the growth of breasts in the human body. The estrogen and progesterone levels in a body affect breasts to grow in size and it becomes heavy. Other than hormonal factors, an unhealthy and unfit lifestyle leads to weight gain which also affects breast size. Other factors that cause breasts to grow large are:

  1. Menstrual cycle
  2. Obesity
  3. PCOS
  4. Pregnancy
  5. Puberty

Eating right for healthy breasts

Eating the right food plays a vital role in the amount of fat stored in the body and overall body fat can contribute to breast size. By eating a quantified balanced (counting calories), combined with a workout, can not only contribute to weight loss but decrease breast size as well.

Simple and routine workouts at home will help one reduce their breast size. One can tighten and tone the chest muscles well which will give a good body posture and a toned body.

These regular exercises can help to reduce breast size with ease:

1.Weight training

Weight training combined with higher activity levels through the day with quantified nutrition will help in burning excess fat. Burning the entire body fat will gradually help in spot reduction too. When one thinks about weight loss, the first thing that strikes their mind is either cardio workout or weight training. Try doing dumbbell pullovers, as it is the best exercise for heavy breasted beauties. “Ideally, if fat loss is the goal, one needs to burn calories and maintain muscle mass which can be achieved by incorporating both types of exercises in their fitness routine, along with a calorie deficit diet,” says Gupta.

2. Cardio

A cardio workout burns calories and improves cardiovascular health. Weight training helps burn calories, retain/build muscles and keeps our metabolism high. Thus, to improve body composition and stay fit, it is recommended to include both cardio and resistance training in one’s fitness regime while eating right. Cardio exercises to reduce boob weight are jogging, shoulder press, push ups, side raises, chest press, and wall push ups

3. Stretching

Women with heavy breasts should include stretching and mobility work in their regular workout regime for strengthening their shoulder and back muscles. This will also help eliminate the back pain and prevent the risk of any muscle injury while working out.
