7 Ways to Lift Saggy Breasts (and Boost Your Self-confidence) | Antony Fitton Plastic Surgery | Plymouth & Truro

7 Ways to Lift Saggy Breasts (and boost your self-confidence)

Saggy breasts are a natural part of ageing and can happen due to various reasons like pregnancy, weight loss, or genetics. While it’s important to embrace our bodies in all shapes and forms, there’s no denying the boost in self-confidence that comes from feeling comfortable and confident in our skin.

7 Ways effective methods to lift and tone saggy breasts:

If saggy breasts are something you’re looking to address, there are ways to help lift and tone them.

Here are seven effective methods to consider to lift and tone saggy breasts:

1. Strength Training:
Strength training exercises that target the chest muscles can help lift and firm saggy breasts. Incorporate exercises like chest presses, push-ups, and dumbbell flies into your workout routine. These exercises not only strengthen the muscles underneath the breasts but also improve posture, which can make your breasts appear perkier.

2. Supportive Bras:
Investing in well-fitted, supportive bras can work wonders in lifting saggy breasts. Look for bras with underwire and wide straps that provide ample support. A good sports bra is also essential, especially during high-impact activities, to minimize breast movement and prevent further sagging.

3. Maintain a Healthy Weight:
Fluctuations in weight can contribute to saggy breasts. Aim to maintain a healthy weight through a balanced diet and regular exercise. Losing weight gradually and avoiding crash diets can help prevent rapid changes in breast size, thus minimizing sagging.

4. Hydration and Moisturisation:
Keeping the skin hydrated and moisturized can improve its elasticity and firmness. Apply moisturizers or lotions containing ingredients like collagen, vitamin E, or shea butter to your breasts daily. Staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water also helps maintain skin elasticity.

5. Posture Correction:
Poor posture can accentuate saggy breasts. Practice good posture by standing and sitting up straight with your shoulders back and chest lifted. Engaging your core muscles can also provide additional support to your breasts and improve overall body alignment.

6. Chest Exercises:
In addition to strength training, specific exercises that target the chest and upper body can help lift saggy breasts. Incorporate exercises like chest presses, chest flies, and wall push-ups into your fitness routine. Consistency is key, so aim to perform these exercises at least two to three times per week for noticeable results.

7. Plastic Surgery / Cosmetic Procedures:
For those looking for more immediate or significant results, there are cosmetic procedures available to lift saggy breasts. Options such as breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, can remove excess skin and reshape the breasts for a firmer appearance. However, it’s essential to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon to discuss the risks, benefits, and expected outcomes of such procedures.

Cosmetic procedures offer a more immediate and significant solution for lifting saggy breasts.

Here’s a closer look at 3 of the most common plastic surgery procedures available to improve the shape and position of your breasts:

1. Breast Lift (Mastopexy):

A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to lift and reshape sagging breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue. During the procedure, Mr Fitton will make incisions around the areola, down the breast, and sometimes along the breast crease, depending on the extent of correction needed. The underlying breast tissue is then reshaped and lifted to a more youthful position, and the excess skin is trimmed away. The nipples and areolas may also be repositioned for a more proportionate appearance. Breast lift surgery can significantly improve breast firmness, shape, and overall appearance.


2. Breast Augmentation with Uplift:

For women who desire both increased breast volume and lifted breasts, a combination of breast augmentation with a lift may be recommended. This procedure involves inserting breast implants to enhance breast size and shape while simultaneously lifting and repositioning sagging breast tissue. By combining these two techniques, patients can achieve fuller, more youthful-looking breasts with improved projection and symmetry.


3. Breast Reduction:

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is typically performed to alleviate symptoms associated with large, heavy breasts, such as back pain, neck pain, and skin irritation. However, it can also effectively lift and reshape sagging breasts by removing excess breast tissue, fat, and skin. During the procedure, Mr Fitton will make incisions around the areola, down the breast, and sometimes along the breast crease to remove the necessary tissue and reshape the breasts to a smaller, more lifted position. Breast reduction surgery can provide significant relief from the discomfort of oversized breasts while simultaneously improving breast aesthetics.

While saggy breasts are a natural part of life, there are several ways to help lift and firm them, ultimately boosting your self-confidence. Whether you opt for strength training, supportive bras, or cosmetic procedures, the key is to find what works best for you and your body.


Remember to embrace and love yourself at every stage of your journey, and know that confidence truly comes from within.


Before considering any cosmetic procedure, it’s crucial to consult with Mr Fitton, an accredited plastic surgeon, who can assess your concerns, goals, and medical history to determine the most appropriate treatment plan for you. Additionally, be sure to discuss the potential risks, benefits, and expected outcomes of a breast lift thoroughly with Mr Fitton so you can make an informed decision.
