If you are: referring to the engorged breasts, then they are only limited to the pregnancy and the period after when mothers are supposed to nurse their babies. So the macromastia is designed to give the baby more milk to nourish so he/she can grow. After the nursing period is over, the mother can find ways to reduce her breast size if desired.
