Why breasts sag

Breasts are fairly low maintenance and can stay sexy and healthy if for the most part left alone.  Some sagging is inevitable regardless of how you treat your breasts.  Breast shape changes as the result of gravity, breast growth, pregnancy, breast feeding, weight fluctuations which in turn cause stretching of the skin’s collagen and elastin which keep the skin firm.

Breast tissue is extremely sensitive to weight fluctuations.  Crash dieting and weight cycling of those 10 to 20 lbs in your 20s will result in premature sagging in your 30s.  Constant stretching and shrinking of the breast damage the skin and the supporting tissue.

So forget those crash diets and keep your weight loss to 1-2 pounds a week.  With this slower weight reduction, there is less chance of it coming back.  If you have unwanted fat that you need to get rid of, there are options such as CoolSculpting by Zeltiq or liposuction.  Also the bigger the breasts, the heavier they are and there is more need for supportive bra and attire.  And if the breasts still sag, they could be lifted with or without use of implants.  Contact us at Beverly Hills Cosmetic Surgical Group at 310.360.0504.
