QUESTION

Are there Breast Lifting Exercises

My breasts are starting to droop more as I get older. Are there any exercises I can do to help lift up my breasts? Will working on my pectoral muscles help?

ANSWER

Breast exercises for sagging breasts

Thanks for your question. Unfortunately, there are no exercises to stop or reverse breast droop. Breast ptosis (sag) can be caused by time or changes in breast size (through breast feeding or weight loss). These factors cause the elasticity of the skin and the Cooper's ligaments (internal supporting structures that keep the breast perky) to decrease. This leads to breast sagging. There is no exercise that will reverse or prevent this. Exercise only helps the underlying pectoralis muscle but will not improve the sag of the breasts. I hope this helps!
