Why is that my breast became so small (almost flat chested) after I had hysterectomy due to adhesion (placenta previa) when i gave birth to my 3rd child. Can I take something (a pill maybe) to make it look fuller like before?

I had hysterectomy after cs when I gave birth to my 3rd child because of having placenta adhesion to my uterus and excessive bleeding. My ovaries and tubes are left. However, I observed that my breast became small, almost flat chested. It's not like this when I gave birth to my 2 child. Indeed, it became larger. Now, it makes me feel insecure and not happy with my body. My bras doesn't fit to me now, very loose. I want to know if I can take a pill like what I searched, kavira pill that seems effective to some to make my breast larger and fuller. I want to gain size and confidence when I dress. so as to please my husband. Please help me. .

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for seeking our advice before taking the kavira pill. Did you mean Karvira 28, which is an oral contraceptive containing estrogen and progesterone?

The breasts are comprised of glandular tissue and fat tissue. The amount of fat determines the size of the breast.

According to Connie Hiers, MD, a San Antonio plastic surgeon,
" As we age, we gain more fat in our breast with less breast (milk producing) tissue. These changes can lead to smaller breast even when women have stayed the same size for many years."

Major weight loss and perimenopause with its fluctuations in estrogen levels can cause breasts to sag and look smaller.

To my knowledge, the only way to increase the size of your breasts is to consult a plastic surgeon and undergo a breast augmentation.

Thank you so much for these information. It awaken me from false thought that a pill could help me. However, it makes me feel sad too knowing that having a breast augmentation would cost me a lot and I am afraid that maybe the plastic surgeon that i may approach is not that good. You know, there are many news I heard about sloppy performances that leads to even worst scenario. How would I know if the advise is really safe?

Hello Anonymous,

You need to research a plastic surgeon's credentials and level of performance before hand. You could ask your primary care physician for a recommendation. You can research online by checking a recommended surgeon's education, hospital affiliations and patient's rating score.
