Do you know all the minor problems about breasts?

How much do you know about 10 small questions about breasts?

Is breast an organ?


The so-called organ means that it can perform certain functions, and the function of breast is to secrete milk.

Milk is produced in the lobule of the breast and then secreted along the small duct in the breast to the nipple opening.

Why can’t men lactation? Because there are no breast lobules in their breasts.

2. How heavy are breasts?

Normal one breast generally weighs only 150 ~ 200 g (far lower than our expectation), but breast-feeding women can weigh more than 500 g on one breast alone.

This is why girls with large breasts have the problem of waist soreness and backache, because it is too heavy!

3. How many women wear underwear of the right size?

Less than a quarter.

More than 85% of women wear the wrong cup size, which may lead to insufficient breast support, resulting in a series of problems, including poor posture, neck and back pain, and even affecting the nerves of hands and shoulders.

The size of the chest can change greatly in different periods. For example, before and after losing weight, before and after menopause and before and after childbirth, women’s breasts will not only have obvious differences in size, but also have compactness. Therefore, underwear with different supporting forces is needed in different periods.

Before buying underwear, be sure to try it on.

Are women satisfied with their breasts?

Most of them are not.

Less than 1/3 of women are satisfied with the size and shape of their breasts, so many women choose chest plastic surgery.

According to statistics, the most plastic surgery performed in the United States in 2013 was breast augmentation. Compared with 2000, the number of people doing breast filling increased by 37%, while the number of people doing breast lifting even increased by 70%.

It is normal.

Some women will find a small amount of hair beside their nipples. Don’t worry, this is normal.

If you feel that the hair growing beside your nipples affects your appearance, or you hate this phenomenon, you can cut it off with small scissors. However, do not shave it with a razor or pluck it with tweezers, which will increase the risk of endogenous hair and inflammation of hair follicles.

Not really.

Breastfeeding itself will not make your breasts droop. However, improper nursing during lactation may indeed affect the shape of the breasts.

The biggest cause of breast prolapse is the relaxation of the breast suspension ligament. Factors affecting the breast suspension ligament include aging, smoking, multiple pregnancies and sudden weight rise and fall.
