Reduction In Breast Fullness (Saggy Breasts)

What Causes Breast Sagging?

Breast sagging can have various causes, just like most other symptoms.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnose your symptoms now!
  • see your health summarized and in detail
  • understand what's happening to your body
  • identify any nutritional deficiencies

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose breast sagging, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "breast sagging" as a symptom.  For example, low estrogens.

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
hot flashes between period
green tea consumption
being lean or underweight
mood swings during menstrual cycle
minor joint pain/swelling/stiffness
sweating mildly at night
having hot flashes
moderate afternoon/evening fatigue
severe facial burning/tingling
moderate unexplained weight gain
poor mental clarity
rapid pulse rate
... and so on

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of breast sagging.

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

In the Symptoms Of Aging section of the questionnaire, The Analyst™ will ask the following question about reduction in breast fullness (saggy breasts):
Have you experienced a reduction in breast fullness and/or increased sagging?
Possible responses:
→ Not applicable / don't know
→ No
→ Slight
→ Moderate
→ Severe
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate no reduction in breast fullness, minor reduction in breast fullness, reduction in breast fullness or major reduction in breast fullness, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as Estrogens Low.  Low levels of estrogen, typically experienced at menopause, can cause sagging breasts.  Sagging that occurs prior to menopause is not reversible by hormone replacement therapy.
