How To Reshape Your Sagging Breasts?

By Dr. Shawn Mutt

Sagging could be the worst thing that can happen to the appearance of the breasts of the female. Men have different points of view where the beauty in breasts is concerned – some men like big breasts, some like small ones, some like the rounder ones, while some like the more subtle breasts with less tissue. But one thing is certain: no man likes sagging breasts. This is why women with sagging breasts lose their confidence and try to seek immediate remedies to correct this condition.

Breasts could sag due to various reasons. In most women the sagging is simply an indication of advancing age. As the woman grows older, the tissues that hold the breast upright lose their strength, which makes the breasts to droop downwards. Women who have undergone a pregnancy and childbirth also may have sagging breasts. During pregnancy, the size of most women's breasts increases. Due to the extra weight in the breasts, the sag could develop. This also happens when the woman feeds her baby after the birth. When the baby suckles on the breast, it has a tendency to pull the breast downwards. This could make the breast droop permanently downwards, causing sagging breasts.

Sagging of breasts is a very common condition in women with big breasts. Due to the sheer weight of these breasts, they may droop downwards and cause very prominent sag. It is seen that women who have undergone breast augmentation surgeries and increased the size of their breasts by more than two cup sizes could find the breasts too big for their bodies. Gravity could pull the breasts downwards.

However, the sagging of breasts is not such a big problem as it once used to be. With the advancement of cosmetic medical techniques, today there are several options to get the sagging condition of breasts remedied. The breast uplift surgery is one of the common enhancement surgeries being used by women all over the world. In this surgery, the surgeon would try to bring the nipple back to the center position on the breast and then reassign the correct position to the tissues of the breast. The skin around the breast is tautened in order to give the breast a firmer and well-toned look.

However, just going in for breast uplift surgery would be hardly enough for a woman who seeks better breasts. Breast uplift surgery could bring the breasts back into position, but it would not make the breasts any bigger. For this reason, most women who go for breast uplift surgery supplement it with a breast augmentation surgery also. The surgeon inserts implants into the breasts in order to increase their bulk and then performs the breast uplift. The result is bigger and better breasts, something that the woman might not have had even in her youth.

There are some common problems with the breast uplift surgery. The breasts do sit in within a day or two, but the intermediate period could be a very uncomfortable one for most women, as this is the time when they will be adjusting to the change in their anatomies. The implants would make the chest feel heavier and somewhat awkward for a couple of days. Also, women are forbidden from indulging in any sort of activity that involves the chest for several weeks after the surgery. There could be undue exertion on the newly dislocated muscles, which could also lead to internal bleeding. However, once this phase of adjustment is past, women could see themselves in a new light and feel sexier and a whole lot younger.

If you are looking out for getting some remedies for your sagging breasts, then you need to be warned about some of the ineffective methods in the market. One of them is the various creams, sprays and such supplements which promise to give you better breasts. Though these methods are not harmful to the breasts, there is no guarantee that they would cure the sagging breasts. Such supplements might work for toning the breasts, but it is not proven whether they would correct the sagging of the breasts.

Similarly, exercises don't work with sagging breasts. Breasts are largely composed of fatty tissue. Exercise can help building up the muscle, but it cannot do anything with fatty tissue. Chest exercises can improve the chest muscles and hence make the breasts sit better on the chest. This will make the breasts settle better on the chest. However the effect will not be that much. But it is advisable to perform chest improvement exercises before the breast uplift surgery as that could show better effects.

So if you are suffering from sagging breasts, do not despair. A vast majority of women all over the world are suffering from this problem. Keep in mind that there is a way out of the problem if you ever need one. In the meantime, indulge in good sexual activity, have a good diet and do chest improvement exercises. You will be on your way to getting a better bust and a better life.

    • I would like to disagree that men don’t like sagging breasts. Most men do. Again, breasts are breasts, it doesn’t matter how they are as long as they are breasts they are beautiful

    • I have not found that the state of my self-esteem hinges on the shape of my breasts.  While I’d be the first to admit it might be nice to have “the girls” back where they were 20 years ago, I have found that a good bra can make a world of difference.  Those are far less expensive and invasive than breast augmentation.  As my self-esteem, ability to make a living, etc. don’t depend on my ability to strut around topless - a good bra suits me just fine.  And my husband has no problem with my poor aging body - naked or otherwise.  

      I understand that some women suffer terrible back pain due to the weight of their breasts and for them, surgery may be the only option.  I have also been told by responsible medical professionals that the skin is a barrier and that you are better off not violating that barrier unless there is no other way to save your life or relieve your extreme discomfort.  I thought the purpose of this website was to help women feel comfortable and proud of being over 40.  I realize it is appropriate to present viable options, but making sagging breasts sound as though it is some sort of grand medical tragedy doesn’t seem to accomplish the site’s purpose.
