What is breast fat?
A woman's chest consists mostly of fatty tissue. The larger your bust size, the more fat you're carrying in your chest. Ducts and lobules, the other types of breast tissue, are glandular and necessary for breastfeeding. The ratio of fat to duct and lobule tissue in your breasts is genetic, and you can't tell what that ratio is without a mammogram or other imaging. Skinny woman who naturally have large breasts are just genetically inclined to carry a greater amount of fat in their chest, just like other women carry more fat in their hips or thighs. Breast fat is subcutaneous fat, the type of fat that sits right under the skin. Subcutaneous fat is healthier than metabolically active visceral fat that sits deep in the belly and promotes inflammation and risk of disease.The question is if breast lift without surgery is possible.
What are the impacts?
If you have symptomatic macromastia, the clinical term for physical problems occurring because of large breasts, you may experience chronic neck, back and shoulder pain. Additional complications include headaches, a slouched posture and chafing or rashes along your bra line and under the straps. Some women develop grooves at the tops of their shoulders where the bra straps sit, caused by holding up the heavy weight of the chest. Extreme symptomatic macromastia can cause sleep disturbances as well as interfere with exercise. The symptoms are similar to arthritis, disk problems, thoracic outlet syndrome and sleep apnea.
How to lose this fat?
Fat tissue in the breasts acts like other fat in your body when it comes to changes in weight. The fat cells swell when you put on pounds and shrink when you lose them. Fat loss happens when you create a calorie deficit, meaning you eat fewer calories than you burn daily. Your body sense this deficit and mobilizes fat from fat cells to use for energy. Which fat cells your body decides to use for energy isn't directed by your diet or any certain exercise, but by your genetic pattern for weight loss.
Create a calorie deficit by trimming calories from what you eat and burning calories with physical activity. You might want to lose fat fast, but remember that a 1- to 2-pound-per-week loss rate is safest and most manageable. This rate requires a 500- to 1,000-calorie deficit per day, since a pound equals 3,500 calories. Exercise to burn an extra 250 to 500 calories and trim 250 to 500 calories from your meals daily to achieve this rate of fat loss. If you lose weight faster, you may have to resort to extreme measures that endanger your health and energy.
