Facts About Sagging Breasts
The firmness of the breasts is related to the skin quality and the size of the glandular tissue. Women experience sagging breasts as they age, because the skin becomes less elastic and the size of the glands decrease over time. There are number of facts that you should be aware of when it comes to breasts sagging:
1- Smoking can cause your Breasts Sag -Smoking and alcohol contribute sagging because they breakdown your skin’s collagen, this affects your skin elasticity which leads to sagging of your breasts
2- Breast-feeding doesn’t cause sagging – Breastfeeding should always be recommended because it has many benefits on woman’s and kid’s health, and contrary to popular belief, it does not cause the breasts to sag. Actually, the pregnancy itself is probably the bigger culprit. Breasts grow to make room for the expanding milk ducts during pregnancy and after breastfeeding is stopped; the glands shrink back and the breasts lose fullness. This expansion of breasts also stretches skin to store the volume but expansion of skin does not shrink back when this volume is lost, that result in breasts sagging.
3- Wearing Bra 24×7 cannot Prevent Sagging – Although a bra holds the breasts up, giving you the shape and look you desire, it cannot prevent the inevitable drooping because once it’s removed, breasts will return to their natural position. The constant pull of gravity on the breasts causes them to droop.
4- No Exercise Can Prevent or Promote Breasts Sagging – Exercise is always recommended because it contributes to a healthier lifestyle. However, high impact exercises cause the breasts to bounce, which can eventually cause damage to the connective tissues in your breasts. This is why it is very important to wear a sports bra while performing all high impact activities such as running or aerobics.
5- Sagging Breasts can be Restored to Youthful Shape – A breast lift is the only way to permanently reposition your breasts back to youthful position. Breast lift (sometimes performed with implants) is a very effective for those women who would like to restore a firm, more upright position of their breasts.
