Breast ptosis is a very common condition when your breasts will sag just like other parts of your body. Your breasts may hang lower than they used to or they may even be unevenly hanging. The nipples may also point lower than it used to on the breasts. The nipple should be pointing upwards for a healthy person. The severity of breast ptosis is separated into three degrees. Degree 1 is if the nipple is on the inframammary crease. Degree 2 is if the nipple is below the fold. Degree 3 is if the nipple is pointing downwards.
There are many factors that may cause breasts to sag. Breasts are generally tight, but as one gets older, the breast can’t hold up all the weight of the breast tissue because of gravity. Old age also means that skin can lose its elasticity. Larger breasts are more prone to ptosis as there is more mass volume to sag. Throughout life, breasts can get bigger and smaller. This is because of hormonal changes, pregnancy, and weight gain/loss.
To prevent breasts from sagging in the first place, you can make some lifestyle choices. Having a good diet is important for the entire body. It is recommended to eat a balanced diet rich in antioxidants. Drinking water is also very important for having smooth skin. Exercising regularly is important for keeping your chest in shape. Smoking makes you age a lot faster, if you are a smoker, quitting will prevent sagging greatly. If your breasts are consistently exposed to sunlight, you should protect them by applying sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or more.
There are surgical and nonsurgical procedures to treat sagging breasts as well as methods to make your breasts look like they aren’t sagging. If you want your breasts to look nice and tight under your clothes, professional bra fitting can support lifting them. Upper body workouts help your breast muscles to look more defined. A breast lift can reverse sagging by removing excess fat to push the breast up. It is also recommended to get an implant if you want it to look bigger as well.
