Smoking makes breasts sag.

Really?! Yes, really. In the past year, researchers have actually named smoking as one of the top causes of sagging breasts. British plastic surgeon Brian Rinker studied 132 American women in their mid-30’s who sought breast lifts and discovered that breastfeeding wasn’t associated with saggy breasts — but smoking was.

Why does this happen?

Scientists don’t know exactly how smoking contributes to breast ptosis, which is the medical term for drooping breast tissue. But Dr. Rinker attributed the results to the fact that smoking breaks down elastin, a connective tissue component in skin that lend it firmness and elasticity. Smoking also damages breast skin the same way it does the face, depriving it of oxygen and nutrients.

What happens when you stop smoking?

The bad news; once breasts are lower and sag, nothing’s going to make them lift back up short of breast surgery. The good news; the loose thin skin that makes breasts look saggier will improve rapidly once you quit smoking. You can try this test: Pinch the skin on the inside of your arm and on the side of your breast under your arm. Look and see how much loose skin you can pull together. Six months after quitting, try the same test and you should see a dramatic improvement in tone and elasticity. Of course, the sooner you quit, the sooner you halt the process that’s causing them to sag.
