Medical Reason Why Some Women Have Saggy Breasts

A change in the appearance of a woman's breast is referred to as sagging or fallen breast. This happens to both young and old women, though it affects women more as they age.

As a result of this condition, some women have low self-esteem because they are frequently body shamed. Breast ptosis is the medical term for sagging breasts.

So, in this article, we will look at some of the possible causes of ptosis, also known as fallen/saggy breasts, in most women.

Here are some medically proven causes of sagging breasts:

1. Aging: As a woman ages, she loses skin elasticity, which is the most common cause of saggy breasts in some women.

2. Larger breast size: When a woman has large breasts, she is more likely to sag because higher breast mass is more vulnerable to gravity.

3. Smoking: Another factor that contributes to breast enlargement is smoking. Of all the factors mentioned here, smoking causes sagging breasts as a result of a person's bad habit that accelerates aging and thus contributes to sagging breasts, sometimes even earlier in life.

Do you want to reduce your chances of having saggy breasts or improve the firmness of your breasts? Here are some actions you should take.

1. Maintain a healthy weight.

You don't have to lose or gain weight to be healthy. Instead, maintain a consistent weight that is healthy for you. This may aid in the firming of your breasts as well as the prevention of saggy breasts.

2. Put on a comfortable bra.

Before engaging in any activity, try to wear a comfortable bra. Wearing a sports bra with adequate support (molded cups) while working out, such as jogging, can reduce breast motion. One study suggests that exercise-induced breast motion causes stretching and sagging, but more research is needed to confirm this. So, choose your bra based on how physically active you intend to be in whatever you do.

3. Give up smoking

If you smoke, quit, and if you don't, don't start because smoking hastens the aging process. Tissues, including breast ligaments, lose firmness as they age. Smoking accelerates aging by destroying elastin, a protein that keeps skin firm.

If you follow the dos and don'ts listed here, you have a good chance of getting your breasts to be as firm as they should be.
