Women: Breast

Prominent symbols of femininity and sensuality, the décolleté and breasts provoke strong emotional feelings. Breasts are made up of a mammary gland, support fibers and fat and no two are alike.

Because the skin in this area is particularly fragile and sensitive, their appearance can change easily due to many internal and external factors. The most prominent of all is age, but sun exposure, pregnancies, weight or hormonal changes are also factors. As such, the breasts can cause many concerns or complexes.

Whether breasts are too big, too small, deformed, drooping or very asymmetrical (Poland syndrome), their appearance can cause varying levels of discontent in women and a lack of self-esteem. Patients often mention that they are not proportionate to the rest of their body.

Breast hypotrophy (breasts are considered too small) is, in most cases, caused by a mammary gland that did not fully develop during puberty.

Some women suffer because they feel their chest is too large, causing esthetic and functional discomfort (back pain, difficulty in finding clothes that fit well) and affecting their daily life.

Whether breasts are considered too small or too large, they can also look “empty”. Although they were fuller-looking in the past, a significant loss of fat causes this empty appearance, following significant weight loss or one or more pregnancies, or hormonal or weight changes.

Finally, the suffering can be caused by breast removal after breast cancer.
