Can Breast Sagging Be Prevented?

Although some elements that contribute to breast ptosis are impossible to avoid, breast sagging can often be staved off—and sometimes ultimately limited—by eating healthily, limiting weight fluctuations, wearing properly supportive bras, not smoking, minimizing sun overexposure and avoiding tanning booths.

But what can you do if you are already experiencing breast sagging?

Fortunately, breast lift surgery (mastopexy) is an excellent, effective solution if you are bothered by your droopy breasts and want then to regain a more youthful, perkier and firm appearance. Treatment involves the removal of excess skin and the lifting and reshaping of breast tissue and nipple areolar complexes for a more ideal shape and position on the chest.
