Having firm, perky breasts is an ideal for many women, though gravity does have a tendency to pull all things down over time.
Fortunately, there are some ways to help prevent or slow down the process of breast ptosis or sagging, and there are effective treatment options for giving your breasts a lift if you’re already noticing significant sagging.
Wear Sunscreen and Don’t Tan
The sun is your number-one enemy when it comes to sagging skin and other signs of aging. Its UV rays break down important proteins like collagen, which give your skin and other tissues their structural support. The same goes for tanning beds, as they give off UV light, too.
If you are going to be outside in the sun, wear sunscreen and reapply it at least every two hours or after swimming or working out.
Wear Properly Fitted Bras
Consider getting fitted by a professional to make sure you are wearing the right size bra.
A properly fitted bra can offer your breasts the support they need to slow down the natural pull of gravity over time. However, don’t rely on too much of a lift from your lingerie, as this could weaken the muscles that naturally give your breasts support.
Maintain a Healthy, Stable Weight
Weight fluctuations can cause your skin to stretch, which can lead to breast sagging. Eat a diet full of fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains, drink plenty of water and get regular exercise to help keep your body healthy and happy and also slow down sagging.
Can Sagging Breasts Be Fixed?
Yes! Truth be told, there’s no way to entirely prevent breast sagging from happening altogether. If you notice signs of significant breast ptosis, consider a breast lift with or without implants to help correct this concern.
