Many people are aware that women often get belly scars when they are pregnant. However, fewer realize that any sort of stretching can leave marks. Stretch marks on breasts are common because breasts grow rapidly during puberty, and they are often the first part of the body to grow (or shrink) during weight gain or loss.

If you gain weight at a rapid pace, you may get marks because the skin cannot adapt quickly enough to your changing shape. They are the result of the inner layer of skin tearing and leaving a scar. These marks can occur on many different parts of the body that grow rapidly ‘ including thighs, hips, breasts, and bellies.

Some women (or men) are more susceptible to these marks than others. There are a few solutions available if you want to get rid of stretch marks on your breasts (or other parts of your body).

Lotions are a popular and non-invasive solution for reducing breast marks. These can be bought over the counter and should contain alpha hydroxy acid. These lotions remove the upper layer of skin very gradually. They must be used on a daily basis or they will not work.

Diet can help to reduce their appearance. Vitamins that are healthy for the skin (such as zinc, vitamins A, C, or D, and protein) are effective for reducing scarring. Food types include nuts, fish, citrus, dairy, eggs, and carrots. Water can also help skin stretch more easily, especially if carbonated beverages and caffeine are also avoided.

As a last resort, surgical methods can be undertaken to reduce these marks. Chemical peeling or lasers are effective in removing these scars. Unfortunately, this treatment is only available to those with lighter skin tones.

These tips are not guaranteed to reduce scarring from skin stretching, but they can be effective.
