Symptoms of too small and sagging breast

Some of the common symptoms of too small and sagging breast are as follows:

  • The breast may appear smaller in size than usual.
  • The skin on the breast may appear loose or saggy.
  • The breast may feel less firm than usual.
  • The nipple and areola (the dark area around the nipple) may appear to be enlarged or droop downwards.
  • In some cases, one breast may be larger or sag more than the other.

Causes of too small and sagging breast:

Developmental anomalies: The breast's skin and the underlying supportive tissue (Cooper's ligaments) are stretched during pregnancy and weight gain. These tissues never fully recover their original shape and size after pregnancy and weight loss. This stretching can cause the breasts to sag. Weight loss, weight gain, hormone changes, gravity, menopause, estrogen deficiency, collagen deficiency, and too many pregnancies are some of the other causes that result in sagging small breasts

Post-partum breast ptosis: Post-partum breast ptosis, or sagging breasts after pregnancy, is a common condition that can cause breasts to appear smaller and sag. This condition is caused by the stretching of the skin and underlying tissues during pregnancy, as well as the weight of the breasts themselves. In some cases, the breasts may also lose their shape and become misshapen.

While post-partum breast ptosis is not a dangerous condition, it can cause a great deal of dissatisfaction with the appearance of one’s breasts. In severe cases, surgery may be necessary to correct the ptosis. However, several measures can be taken to improve the appearance of sagging breasts, such as wearing a supportive bra or using a breast cream or supplement. 

If you are experiencing post-partum breast ptosis, speak to your doctor about the best way to correct the condition. With the right treatment, you can regain your confidence and improve the way you look and feel about your breasts.
