Are you uncomfortable with the size of your breasts? Breast reduction may be for you.

Some women have disproportionally large breasts that can cause back, neck, or other pain, can be difficult to dress, or otherwise cause physical discomfort during everyday activities.

There are a few celebrities who have spoken out publicly about their decision to have a breast reduction procedure. According to People.com, Amber Rose revealed that the procedure was something she wanted because:

“I was scared that I wouldn’t feel sexy anymore, but it got to the point where I literally was in pain. It was almost as if I had like a heavy backpack on my chest.”

Rose says her breast size also affected her ability to exercise, and to perform with Maksim Chmerkovskiy on Dancing with the Stars in 2016.

“My boobs slowed me down. And, my partner, Maks, would be like, ‘Come on! Hurry up, faster, faster, faster.’ And, I’m like, ‘Dude, I can’t go any faster! I’m like in pain. I literally cannot move that fast,’” she says.

“My boobs are stupid heavy, my back hurts and I can’t wear cute lil shirts without a grandma bra.”

Rose, now a 36DDD, said, “it’s like a dream come true” to wear things like spaghetti-strapped tank tops. “Now when I’m running out the door, I don’t have to search for the right bra to fit within the shirt or to match the color of the shirt, so, it doesn’t show and look gaudy,” she added. “I can kind of just throw it on and I’m like, ‘This is amazing!’ I’ve been missing this my whole life.”
