My breasts melted away after breastfeeding. Will they go back to the way they were?
Hello Marie, I breastfed my baby for several months. But since I stopped breastfeeding, my breasts have melted away. I have lost a lot of volume. Do you think it will come back?
The mammary gland develops during pregnancy (or pregnancies) to prepare for lactation. That is why breasts can grow and become heavier. Pregnancy changes breasts. Also, after the breastfeeding period, you will have the impression that your breasts have lost their shape and volume, and you are probably right! Tissues can be less dense than before pregnancy, and the muscle structure more relaxed due to pregnancy hormones and breastfeeding. To firm up everything, you can do pectoral exercises to redevelop the muscle structure, firmness and volume, which is specific to each woman.
