Can you Remove Veins on the Breast? Breast veins usually appear after undergoing different breast surgeries. For instance, breast implants are the leading cause of prominent breast veins, which cause disappointment and dissatisfaction among women. When unwanted bluish veins affect your appearance despite you spending so much money and time, it can be irritating.
This is especially if you recently underwent breast reconstruction surgery after surviving cancer. These bluish veins will only remind you of your struggle and bring back painful memories. Understandably, you’ll want to remove traces of the painful condition before moving forward in life.
While many women may deal with this problem, very few know that there are various ways to can remove bulging veins from your breasts. Here are some of the most common methods to remove breast veins:
Dermatoporosis is a chronic skin fragility condition. You might undergo this condition as you grow old. When you start aging, your skin will turn thinner, leading to bruises and tearing. Thin and fair skin with little body fat can lead to prominent veins. You may also experience this condition because of genetics, constant use of corticosteroids, and long-term exposure to UVB and (UV) A rays, which lead to skin damage.
Your breast veins might appear more visible due to bruising or injury. For instance, many breastfeeding women might notice bulgy veins around the nipples due to bruises and damage that occurs because of sucking. Once your baby stops breastfeeding, the bruises will heal eventually.
Pregnancy can cause breasts to enlarge, which makes the veins more visible. Furthermore, breastfeeding can also lead to breast swelling and puffiness. Visible veins on breasts can also be the symptoms of edema.
In this condition, the valves inside your veins grow weak and lose function. Their function is to maintain the flow of blood, circulating it forward towards the heart. The inefficiency of these valves causes blood to pool in the veins. When this happens, vein function impairs. This damaged vein starts to swell and change its shape. The severity of this condition can be painful and starts to bruise. Varicose veins are common in feet and legs, but these veins might also appear on your breasts.
Mondor’s disease is the inflammation of the breast, which causes severe pain. Furthermore, the breast veins start to swell and grow visible. The main reason for this condition is still unknown. However, doctors suggest that it might be surgery or tight clothing. Mondor’s disease can be an indication of breast cancer, but not necessarily. This condition does not stay forever or until treatment. You will get over it with time. Nonetheless, it leaves behind bulging veins on your breast.
