Losing the fight against gravity?

So your breasts have lost the fight against gravity and now you are left wondering “why full, perky breasts seems to be a privilege of youth.”

What now…?

Developing breast ptosis or sagging breasts is life changing. Women who are afflicted with this condition frequently experience difficulties with emotional and / or sexual intimacy as their self-esteem takes a hit. It can become difficult to expose your body to a partner. Looking proportionate in a swim suit or other clothing can become very challenging and is likely to inhibit activities. Often women become discouraged with the shape of their body as they often feel as though their waist is disappearing as the breasts lengthen, creating the appearance of a thicker mid section.

Women can develop dropping or sagging breasts for many reasons. Drooping and breast deflation can occur after pregnancy or breast feeding, after weight loss, or years of baking their breasts in the sun until they are well done. The upper portions of the breasts appear flattened and the lower portion descends below the fold of the breast. Many times breast skin loses elasticity and becomes stretched or weakened. Your self-esteem may be affected further if any or all of the above symptoms occur in an unbalanced fashion, creating asymmetry of the breasts as well.

Experiencing a change in self-esteem is a normal reaction to this body change as women’s femininity is often directly related to how she feels about the size and shape of her breasts. Unfortunately, just because the condition is a common one, doesn’t make it any easier to deal with when it happens to you. Fortunately, more women are willing to talk about this age old problem and are discovering that there are solutions available that will improve their outlook on life.
