Saggy Breasts After Pregnancy


Saggy breasts after pregnancy happens.

It’s a fact of life! Saggy breasts can even occur when we don’t have kids or breastfeed. However there are some things you can do to improve the appearance of saggy breasts. 

Why Do Saggy Breasts After Pregnancy Happen?

The collagen in our skin decreases as we age, and since the skin on our breasts is thin to begin with, well, there you have it – saggy breasts. Don’t fret though. Our breast pampering tips can help them look and feel better.

Gently Wash and Exfoliate Your Saggy Breasts After Pregancy

The key word here is “gently” and the exfoliating is more for your décolletage than your actual breasts. The skin on your chest is quite thin, and no doubt has gone through a lot after pregnancy, and in life in general.

Think about it. Our breasts are in and out of bras their whole life, they bounce around when we do most types of activity (run, walk, exercise, dance, etc), we sleep on them, and if you have breastfed your babies, well, enough said.

Pampering your décolletage and your saggy breasts with a gentle wash and scrub can reinvigorate them.

The actual motion of washing them with a gentle cleanser can remove impurities, increase new cell growth (yes, please), and help prevent blemishes (another yes, please). All of this can help give the skin on your chest and your breasts a beautiful glow and appear younger.

Find a scrub with a gentle cleansing formula or create your own natural scrub by mixing 3 tablespoons of olive oil and 1 tablespoon of sugar. Mix well and slowly massage your chest and breasts.

Soon you will feel the sensual goddess that is deep inside of you, waiting to be awaken. If you don’t, keep trying, she might be in a really deep sleep. 🙂

Pamper Your Saggy Breasts After Pregnancy

Stop Saggy Breasts After Pregnancy with the Right Support

This pampering tip is so true yet so many woman dismiss it – have a professional bra fitting.

Wearing the right bra size and type is life-changing.

Wearing a bra that doesn’t provide the right support can cause lots of damage over the years. Many women wear bras that are too big. Therefore, the weight of the breasts are causing the skin to sag because the breasts aren’t supported enough. This is true for small breasts too.

Finding a properly fitting sports bra is just as important. The bouncing that occurs can stretch the skin and ligaments. Every six months, replace your bras if they are feel like they aren’t as supportive when you bought them.

Your body weight also influences how saggy breasts can become after pregnancy.

If you gain and lose more than 10 pounds on a consistent basis, you breasts may appear to sag more often.

Breast Implant Surgery (Augmentation) Explained

Breast implant surgery is usually carried out under general anaesthetic, and takes between 60 and 90 minutes.

During the operation, a cut (incision) will be made in the skin next to the treated breast(s). Your surgeon will discuss with you the location of the incisions beforehand so you’re aware of where the scars will be.

After the incision, the implant is positioned between your breast tissue and chest muscle, or behind your chest muscle. Once the implants are in place, the incision is stitched and covered with a dressing. The stitches used a dissolvable and the implants used are the best quality – selected by your specialists.

You’ll usually be able to go home the same day you have the operation, or sometimes you may need to stay in hospital overnight. When you return home, you’ll need to take things easy at first, before gradually returning to most of your normal activities within the next three to four weeks.

You may be worried your breasts look unnatural at first, but this is normal and in the vast majority of cases temporary. Your breasts will usually start to look and feel better within a few months.

Possible complications

If you are contemplating having breast implants, you should make sure you are aware of the potential risks.

Some of the problems that can occur as a result of having breast implants fitted include:

  • infection or bleeding after surgery
  • scarring
  • the shrinkage of scar tissue around the implant (capsular contracture)
  • the implant splitting (rupturing)
  • the implant becoming creased or folded
  • temporary or permanent changes to nipple sensation

In some cases, further surgery may be needed to treat problems that develop. Your Breast Expert surgeon will always be a highly experienced oncoplastic breast surgeon who has treated thousands of patients. She or he will be able to reassure you about these potential complications during your consultation.
