Breast Stretch Marks : Opt For A Suitable Remedy

Oct 9, 2007
Human skin definitely calls for our care, considering the many functions it performs. It protects us from various kinds of internal infection, warns us of any kind of physical damage by means of sensory pain signals and helps in cooling the entire body via sweat glands. If you are affected by breast stretch marks after pregnancy, it is good to know more about them and take necessary precautions for removal and protect this vital organ without further neglect.

Breast stretch marks may be formed on the belly, buttocks, thighs, upper arms or breasts or any area where fat tends to accumulate. The main cause of breast marks is that during pregnancy the hormones begin to induce the breasts for lactating to feed the unborn baby. If the persons weight gain is sudden and enormous the skin and underlying tissue stretch beyond their capacity, the collagen deep in the tissues break apart. The dermis layer actually tears and once the healing takes place scars begin to appear which are what we call stretch marks.

There is a possibility that you may get pregnancy marks if your mother or sister had it. Other than genetic reasons, ethnicity or skin tone, the fairer you are you tend to get more, the skin type, dry skin is less elastic, nutritional history and the amount of weight gained during pregnancy. To minimize breast marks use a firm perfectly fitting bra.

Various Pregnancy Stretch Mark Treatments

Complete removal of stretch marks is still a remote possibility but you can definitely cause them to fade away by adopting the various stretch mark treatments available.

There is no proven treatment for stretch marks but some of the ways by which it could be minimized may be summarized as follows:

Moisturizers and creams: Cocoa butter has been used over the years and proved to be quite successful. You may also apply Vitamin E, lavender oil, olive oil or any other moisturizer. Creams containing alpha hydroxyl acid may help reduce these marks.

Laser surgery: Laser surgery also cannot completely remove stretch marks on breast or any other are but can minimize the ugly appearance

Cosmetic surgery: This is a very expensive method and is adopted only if the scars are really bad and gives an embarrassing look.

The best way of minimizing breast stretch marks is eat a healthy nutritious diet and drink plenty of water.

While using lotions or creams for application on the breast check with your health practitioner as it may either, affect the milk supply or may affect the secreted milk.

It is wise to be careful during your pregnancy, not to put on too much extra weight, to drink plenty of water and keep the skin well hydrated, eat good healthy food and not very oily fatty or spicy foods. Remember if stretch marks once appear they are permanent to stay, the various methods may just minimize the effect or reduce the intensity but a treatment for complete stretch mark removal has not yet been discovered.
