Normal finding: I am amazed about how often I have women ask me about the veins on their breast. Occasionally they are spider veins but mostly they are blue veins. These are almost always normal findings and normal variations of chest veins. They tend to be more pronounced in fair skinned females and they may be related to hereditary factors. The also do become more prominent during pregnancy.
Totally normal: Enlargement of the breasts and enlargement of the veins are both part of being pregnant. Hormonal changes make veins larger and more visible. Wait 6-12 months after you are done breast feeding to consider any cosmetic remediation. A vein specialist or phlebologist can address breast veins with sclerotherapy.See 1 more doctor answer
