Sagging Breasts and Skin
What Does Sagging Breasts And Skin Mean?
Skin sagging is a process that occurs naturally as a woman ages. However, oftentimes it is a constant reminder of the aging process and can severely undermine positive self-image. While sagging skin is not necessarily unhealthy, the reasons might be indicative of further health concerns.
This process usually begins during your 40’s but can start during the 30’s, especially if weight gain or fluctuation is an ongoing concern. Women usually notice sagging and wrinkled skin of the face and neck, sagging arms and inner thighs, and deterioration of the cellulite. Some will also notice redistribution of fat tissue, which is more concentrated in the abdominal area, or loss in certain areas, such as breast tissue.
When estrogen is low, skin is more prone to photo-aging, loss of elasticity and firmness, and it appears sagged, thinner and wrinkled. In addition, estrogen is important for the production of glycosaminoglycans, which are directly involved in maintaining the water content of the skin. Aside from age and weight, other factors contributing to this issue might include nutritional deficiencies, smoking, strenuous exercise, over-tanning and wearing a poorly fitting bra. This can severely undermine how a woman feels about herself, and she may feel it lessens her attractiveness or overall confidence.
