There are a number of reasons for women to develop sagging breasts. It can occur following pregnancy, with or without breastfeeding. It can be due to the aging process, obesity, or menopause. Gravity always plays a role in the development of sagging breasts. Some womens breasts will simply develop that way at a very young age. The simplest way to think of the sagging breast is that there is too much skin for the amount of volume. Thats why the corrective procedures may involve reducing the amount of skin, which results in scars, increasing the breast volume with an implant, or both.
