Twin sisters from New Jersey in the US have finally put
years of back pain and cruel teasing behind them by having life-changing breast
Tanesha and Tiwan Sweet, 42, both had size 40G breasts and

Speaking to ABC News, Tanesha explained she used to suffer
from near-constant back spasms, while she felt so uncomfortable about her shape
that she wore two bras and a sweater, no matter what the heat was outside.
Her breasts have now been reduced to a 38DD and she claimed
the procedure has changed her life as the discomfort has gone and she can wear
different types of clothes.
"If you're having back pain and there's emotional pain,
I would say to do it. I wish I would have done it sooner,” she said.
Women with very large breasts can also experience neck and
shoulder pain, while they may suffer from rashes that can get infected.
