Busted: Myths on Sagging Breasts
Myth 1: Pectoral exercises like bench pressing will diminish the droop.
Fact: While these exercises can enhance tone, they can’t change the shape or positioning of the breasts. A breast lift is the only viable option for returning breasts to their previous elevation.
Myth 2: Breasts droop because of too much bouncing.
Fact: Breasts sag because supporting ligaments and skin stretch over time.
Myth 3: Breast size stays constant throughout a woman’s lifetime.
Fact: Breast size results from hormonal, weight and lifestyle changes in addition to pregnancy and breast-feeding.
Myth 4. Implants alone will give you lift.
Fact: Implants restore fullness. A breast lift is the only method to restore sagging breasts.
Myth 5: Creams, potions, lotions, and supplements can restore breast firmness and perkiness.
Fact: They are a waste of time and money.
To maintain firm, elevated breasts, Dr. Moraitis in Palm Harbor recommends:
- Wear a properly fitted bra
- Keep your weight stable; fluctuation can lead to sagging
- Sleep on your back to avoid putting too much weight on your front side
- Keep breasts moisturized and always use sunscreen
- Maintain good posture
- Exercise regularly
