Losing a large amount of weight is a wonderful thing. It boosts self-esteem, creates a healthier body and allows you to do the things you want to do. While there are many positive things that come from weight loss, there are a few little annoyances that get in the way, such as sagging or non-firm breasts. After all, weight is lost all over the body, including the breasts, leaving skin that is stretched out and, well, a little saggy. Fortunately, there are a few ways you can achieve more firm-looking breasts after weight loss that don't require an cosmetic surgery.
Things You'll Need
- Supportive bra
Do exercises that work to tone your upper chest and pectoral region. This won't firm the actual breast tissue, but it will lift your breasts and give the area around them a more toned feeling and look. Exercises such as push-ups, bench pressing and arm- resistance training are a great place to start.
Massage your breasts on a regular basis in order to improve your bustline. It's said that regularly massaging your breasts will help blood circulation. Improved blood circulation to your breast means that essential nutrients will have an easier time making their way to your breast tissue.
Maintain good posture. It sounds like an easy and perhaps silly remedy, but when you stand up straight and avoid slouching, your breasts will appear more firm. To achieve your best posture, stand or sit up straight, pull your shoulders back and keep your chin up.
Wear a bra that supports your breasts completely. A bra that lifts, supports and separates your breasts is key to a firmer-looking bust.
Tips & Warnings
- The easiest way to achieve firm breasts is surgery. Most other remedies are not permanent and may not give you the look you desire. It's important to weigh the options of breast-enhancement surgery before opting into it.
