Tennis Champ Says She Will Undergo Breast Reduction

In order to increase her agility and hopefully improve her game, tennis player Simona Halep says she plans to undergo breast reduction surgery next fall.  

According to news sources in the UK, Ms. Halep complained that her large (34 DD) breasts have slowed her reaction time on the court and caused discomfort. “It’s the weight that troubles me – my ability to react quickly”, she told The Sun.

In 2008, Halep won the junior French Open.  She is now ranked 317th in the world.  

Women pursue breast reduction surgery for a several reasons, increased mobility being just one of them.  One breast reduction patient stated, “Before I didn’t want to run anywhere, [not] even across the street. If something happened, I would not run.  It was painful and embarrassing” (Klassen 2009).  

Beside issues with physical activity, many women hope to alleviate irritation around their bra strap and underneath the breast, pain in the back and neck, and discomfort during sleeping.

The procedure is a sort of ‘normalizing’ experience for women.  After surgery, patients often say they are less self-conscious, they fit into more regular sized clothes, and that they typify what is perceived as the ‘normal’ female body.
