Do Home Remedies for Sagging Breasts Really Work?

April 6th, 2021 | Posted in: Breast Lift |

As time goes by, it is natural for the breasts to lose elasticity and begin to droop. This happens due to many factors, including pregnancy, breastfeeding, gravity, weight loss, and aging. 

While breast sag is extremely common, it can be a source of anxiety and dismay for many women, causing them to lack confidence in their overall appearance.

Every woman desires to have firm-looking and well-projected breasts, and many women turn to pectoral muscle exercises, cold therapy, and other home remedies to try and improve breast sagging.

While chest exercise routines tone the chest muscles for better support and posture, it is important to note that breasts are not made up of muscles, so exercising alone and home remedies will not make droopy breasts perky again.

If your breasts have lost their youthful, perky look due to the aging process, weight loss, or pregnancy, a breast lift is considered a more effective and lasting solution for lifting and shaping your breasts. 

It offers a more significant improvement, especially for women with moderate to severe breast sagging.

Breast Lift: To Lift Your Saggy Breasts

A breast lift (mastopexy) involves removing extra skin around the breast and tightening your tissue to create the following changes:

Enhanced Breast Shape

Are your once perky breasts droopy and stretched out? 

Over time, the connective tissue in the breasts—known as Cooper’s ligaments—stretches, causing the breasts to sag and lose their firm and round shape.

A breast lift restores the breasts to a more youthful position and shape. Some women may opt to combine their lift with breast augmentation to add more volume and create upper pole roundness.

Improved Nipple Projection

When a woman with sagging breasts stands, the nipple of the breast tends to point downward. Usually, the nipples should sit above the crease under your breasts. 

A breast lift can help to reposition the nipple-areolar complex, giving it a more attractive and natural-looking forward projection.

Reduced Under Breast Irritation

Sagging or low-hanging breasts often rub against the skin of the under-breast area, leading to irritation caused by the excess skin. 

By having the excess skin removed, women can prevent painful chafing and have a more enjoyable and active lifestyle.
