Saggy breasts treatment options

What causes saggy breasts?

Fact: Saggy breasts are frustrating in terms of self-confidence and emotional wellness.  


The medical term for sagging breasts is ptosis and is mainly caused when the ligaments that lift and support your breasts (called Cooper’s ligaments) stretch out over time.

The loss of skin elasticity due to aging is the most common cause of saggy breasts. But, many other factors can lead to breasts that droop.

Other causes of saggy breasts include:

  • Collagen and estrogen deficiency

  • High body mass index

  • Gravity (not wearing a bra)

  • Larger breast size (higher breast mass is more vulnerable to gravity)

  • Menopause

  • Wearing a bad bra

  • Sun exposure. Ultraviolet rays damage the skin and cause loss of elasticity.

  • Multiple pregnancies and breastfeeding

  • Weight gain. Substantial fluctuations in weight can cause unnecessary stretching of the breasts. 

  • Exercising without the proper breast support gear

Another factor is smoking, which accelerates aging and contributes to sagging breasts at an early stage of life. 

Maintaining a healthy weight will help women avoid the progression of unnecessary stretching.
