I have a lot of stretch marks on my breasts. What can this be from is my bra too tight or what is it?

Can one get cosmetic surgery to remove stretch marks from breasts? Would it look natural?

Can one get cosmetic surgery to remove stretch marks from breasts? Would it look natural?

Depends: The only way, as of today, to remove strech marks is by cutting the skin involved with the strech marks. The procedures are called mastopexy and breast reduction. Obviously, if the strech marks are too extensive, part of them will remain because, there needs to be enough skin to close the wounds. However, the left over strech marks will look better due to skin tightening. ...Read more

Due to weight fluctuations during my teen years I got saggy droopy breasts & stretch marks on them. Is there a way to correct it. Wil anyone marry me?

People get married: Women of all breast shapes get married every day (it's not a big factor). Gravity pulls on breasts and makes them sag. People have different strengths of "connective tissue" framework inside their breasts, their skin, etc. (likely familial or genetic). Having had large fatty breasts can stretch out the connective tissue and leave a weaker framework, leading to sagging once breasts shrink. ...Read more

Plastic Surgery: Several topical options exist and are most effective when they are red (striae rubra).

I know this isn't a huge deal. But I'm 21 years old, my breast size has recently decreased but I have stretch marks along the sides. I don't know if this is from previous rapid growth or what?

I know this isn't a huge deal. But I'm 21 years old, my breast size has recently decreased but I have stretch marks along the sides. I don't know if this is from previous rapid growth or what?

Probably so: Breast stretch marks are typically the result of rapid changes in breast size. They probably developed in the past during a more rapid development phase, but perhaps you notice them more now with your recent weight loss. With time they will become fainter and less noticeable. Good wishes to you! ...Read more

Not much works: Tretinoin cream has yielded mixed results in double blind testing. Some types of laser therapy have shown promise but it's unclear whether this is permanent. Maintaining a healthy weight can help and the marks fade with time.

My 13 year old daughter has been getting a lot of stretch marks lately on her breast & thighs and which bother hers a lot& is there anything for it?

Puberty: Mederma cream over-the-counter is supposed to help, although it may not be terribly effective. Stretch marks face with time. Your daughter, unless she is becoming overweight, is probably simply developing a woman's figure. She may also develop stretch marks along her hips. Exercise and a healthy diet also help. ...Read more
