Wimbledon winner expounds breast reduction benefits

breast reduction benefits

The 2019 Wimbledon winner, Simona Halep, has opened up about the benefits of breast reduction surgery. The tennis star claims her breast reduction op helped her to win this year’s biggest tennis tournament.

The Romanian star had a 34DD chest, which she felt was getting in the way of her progress on the court. So, at the age of just 17, she decided to go under the knife for a breast reduction procedure. Here, we’ll look at why Halep chose to go under the knife and the benefits a breast reduction can deliver.

Larger breasts were holding the star back

Halep claims it was the weight of her larger breasts which led her to seek breast reduction surgery. The additional weight was affecting her reaction times and it was becoming uncomfortable to play.

Although Halep underwent the procedure to aid in her tennis career, she claims she would have had the operation anyway. The side effects of having larger breasts can be difficult to deal with, even just in daily life.

After undergoing the procedure, Halep’s career started to really take off. Now a 34C, she has quickly begun to ascend to the top of the tennis world.

What are the breast reduction benefits you can expect?

For many women, larger breasts are the ultimate goal. However, those who do have bigger breasts know that it isn’t always a good thing. When the breasts are too large, they can cause back pain, make it difficult to exercise and cause a lot of embarrassment.

By undergoing breast reduction surgery, it’s possible you could regain a better quality of life. It can aid in self-esteem and confidence, as well as eliminate pain and make it easier to lead a more active lifestyle.

How long does it take to recover from a breast reduction?

A breast reduction procedure is fairly simple, but it does come with some risks. The recovery time can also be quite lengthy. The first few days after the procedure may be tough, with most experiencing pain or discomfort for a few days following the op. It’s advised that patients stay off work until they no longer need pain medication. All activity should also be limited for three to four weeks after the surgery.

Simona Halep’s decision to be open about her surgery perfectly highlights the benefits the procedure can deliver. However, before deciding whether or not to undergo breast reduction, it is important to talk through your options, along with the risks, with an experienced cosmetic surgeon.
