Though menopause brings many changes to a woman's body, including fluctuations in hormone levels and physical shifts, it doesn't have to mean that you have to live with larger breasts. There are various methods for addressing breast size after menopause that can help you feel more comfortable in your own skin.
One of the most effective methods for reducing postmenopausal breast size is physical exercise. The combination of aerobic exercises (such as jogging or cycling) and strength training can help tone the chest muscles and reduce the circumference of a woman's breasts. It is important to note, however, that only physical activity can decrease fat in the area; there is no known method for doing so without exercise.
Hormone Replacement Therapy
Another popular option for treating symptoms associated with menopause is hormone replacement therapy (HRT). This type of program involves supplementing a woman's naturally-occurring hormones with additional hormones taken orally or via injections. While HRT isn't likely to reduce breast size directly, studies have linked it with decreased postmenopausal belly fat accumulation, which could lead to an overall reduction in breast size if it is primarily caused by excess fat buildup in the area.
In addition to physical activity and HRT, making some simple changes to your diet may also help reduce breast size over time. Sticking to a healthy diet low in saturated fats and sugary foods while increasing intake of fruits and vegetables can improve overall health outcomes while also helping address symptoms associated with menopause–including soreness and swelling around the breasts. Additionally, avoiding caffeine (which can cause fluid retention) may be beneficial for regulating breast size as well.
Herbal Remedies & Supplements
Certain herbs and dietary supplements may be useful for helping treat symptoms associated with menopause–including those related to breast size. Certain phytoestrogens like Dong Quai are believed to mimic estrogenic activities within the body, providing relief from some of the most unpleasant side effects associated with this hormonal fluctuation period in a woman's life. These herbal remedies should always be consulted with your doctor prior to taking them as they may interfere with other medications you may already be taking or cause unexpected effects depending on individual medical conditions.
