Perky and perfectly shaped breasts are something that every woman dreams about but rarely manages to accomplish. Breast sagging is an unavoidable process all women most go through as they grow old. The skin loses the elasticity and the breasts begin to look saggy.
In the forties women most usually start noticing the breasts losing their firmness, but it can happen earlier in some cases as well. There are numerous factors which influence this process, such as breastfeeding, pregnancy, menopause, rapid weight gain or weight loss, poor nutrition and wearing an unfitted bra.
Some diseases like breast cancer or respiratory conditions like tuberculosis can also cause breasts to sag. Also, excessive consumption of nicotine, alcohol and carbonated beverages can contribute to the problem.
Breasts are made of fat, connective tissues and glands that produce milk, and they need appropriate care to keep them in good shape.
