Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 1 year ago.

Hormonal issues are the commonest cause of reducing the size of the breat. You may get the blood work for following;

1) Thyroid function tests

2) Prolactin.

Lack of exercise (this causes atrophy of pectoralis muscle / chest muscle) also can be the concomitant reason for shrinking of breast.

Ok is there anything that I can do to get them back it's realy depressing me all I seem do is cry about it xx
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 1 year ago.

I am sorry for the delay. I had an emergency surgery to do. I apologize for your wait.

First thing is that you would regain the size; thus there is nothing to worry. So please do not get depressed. Upper body exercises including shoulder and chest muscles would improve the muscle mass resulting in tightening and augmentation of the breast. Mild massage of the breast too would help. Meanwhile get the bleed tests for thyroid and prolactin with the help of your primary care physician. If these show any abnormality; that would warrant some medications.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
