When talking about breast surgeries, we confirm that there are no useful creams, devices, hormones or exercises that can replace surgery which is the only fruitful solution.



Intro to Breast development

Woman breasts are a very important sign of her femininity. When the girl reaches the age of ten years, the ovary produces specific hormones that motivate the breasts to grow which determine the breast size. Breasts respond to that hormone differently from a girl to another, that response maybe weak leading to small breasts or it can be strong leading to large breasts. The level of response is based on the father’s and the mother’s genetic components.

And through the years, the woman gets pregnant and her breasts grow more after the placenta produces a number of hormones that affect the breast tissue to make it soft and ready for lactation after giving birth. The breasts grow according to the produced amount of milk after labor then the breasts return back to normal which make them flabby and redundant which bothers a lot of women.

Losing the beautiful shape of the breasts may negatively affect the woman psychologically, socially or even physically. These changes can be accepted to a limit and if it passes that limit, it becomes unacceptable and then surgery will be needed to reach the beauty standards.

To elaborate, every female shall know about the breasts anatomical structure which is fat, skin, glands and no muscles which means there is no exercise can affect the size of the breasts. The truth is that there are some exercises that enhance the back and the chest muscles but those muscles are located behind the breast so it may help partially in the shape of the breast.

Aging process makes the breasts and the skin loses their natural look, shape and flexibility therefore the breasts are not lifted properly and become flappy.
