Mommy Makeovers: Best Remedy For Sagging Breasts

All breasts do not have muscles in them. They are mainly composed of soft tissues and ligaments. The pectoral muscles are actually located below the breast tissue. Because of this lack of needed support, breasts, especially large ones, will inevitably sag due to age and gravity.

Sagging of the breasts is a natural progression for all women. Age and gravitational pull are not the only factors that contribute to sagging breasts. Pregnancy, especially when a woman has had multiple pregnancies, will also cause breasts to sag because of breast involution.

Breast involution is a medical term for the shrinkage of tissue inside the breast mass. The tissue that is not needed anymore, such as milk sacs after pregnancy, shrink and leaves empty spaces that the stretched skin over the breasts cannot fill up easily.

The same ‘empty spaces’ can be caused by sudden loss of fat due to weight reduction. Women with a higher body mass index, not necessarily fat women, may experience fluctuations in weight and body mass.

As a result, the skin is unable to adjust immediately with the continuous shifts of body fat content. This loosens up the skin and makes the breasts sag. However, age and exercise are decisive factors in helping weight watchers cope with sagging breasts. The younger women and those who also exercise to complement their dieting can tighten up their breasts’ skin elasticity and the underlying pectoral muscles.

Menopause can also cause breast involution. Aging and loss of estrogen can signal to the body that the woman has lost the ability to bear a child. Breast tissue and some body fat are not necessary anymore for menopausal women.

Aside from shrinking of breast tissues and loss of fat, sagging breasts can also develop from loss of skin elasticity. Smoking can destroy elastin, a protein that maintains the skin’s youthful elasticity. Aging also contributes to the loss of skin’s elasticity because of collagen breakdown.

The common myth that breastfeeding causes sagging breasts to develop is not true, a 2006 University of Kentucky research has confirmed. Women who avoid breastfeeding their children often use this myth as an excuse for fear that their breasts will sag and look ugly.

Luckily, many cosmetic surgery clinics around the country offer great results for a reasonable price tag. A mommy makeover can change the way mothers look post-pregnancy. It will definitely bring back the beauty of young firm breasts to post-pregnancy women everywhere.
