What causes breasts to sag?

  • Aging – will inevitably cause some deformations on your body including your breasts
  • Pregnancy – Due to changes in hormones and weight gain most women have larger breasts after giving birth. Even though the breasts lose their volume after breastfeeding and return to their original size, sagging occurs in the breast because the stretched skin and ligaments do not regain their old elasticity.
  • Weight fluctuation – can cause breast skin to lose elasticity and sagging.
