Depending on age, gravity and changes in hormone levels, changes occur in women’s breasts after the age of 40. Such changes may occur in different ways for everyone. Yet, in general, it can be said that such changes are negative. Then, in which areas do breast changes due to aging occur? Can breast aesthetic procedures solve this negative progress? Details are in our article.


5 Things That Affect Breast Changes While Aging

Changes in breasts due to aging occur because of different factors. Bones, skin, nipples, muscles and fat tissue are effective on such changes. These cause the following changes in breasts:

Breast Changes

1. Skin 

Skin covers breast area completely and it behaves like a cover there. Thanks to connective tissues like elastin, collagen and glycosaminoglycan, skin becomes moist, elastic and tight. Significant decrease occurs in elastin, collagen and glycosaminoglycan levels as age increases. Accordingly, skin becomes dryer, saggier and less plump.


2. Bones 

When breasts are examined, it can be determined that there is no bone inside. Yet, aged bones in ribcage may affect how breasts look. With aging, bone density and size decreases. This situation may cause breasts to be less supported by bones. When all these changes combine with the changes in overall appearance, breasts become less plump.


3. Nipples 

Expressed as areolar complex, nipples are the points from where milk channels reach outside of breasts. Nipples may disappear depending on age. Or, it may go inward oriented. All these negatively affect how breasts look.


4. Fat Tissue  

Breasts consist of mainly fat tissue and glandular tissue. As age increases and hormone levels change, glandular tissue amount in breasts decreases and fat tissue amount increases. Although fat tissue amount is then higher compared to younger ages, total fat tissue amount may decrease. This situation causes upper part of breasts to be less plump and makes them saggy.

Some women may gain weight especially after menopause period. Some of this gained weight accumulates as fat in breasts. This situation may make breasts larger. There are women who received breast enlargement surgery in their young ages and whose breasts get even larger after menopause. Such women received another surgery so that implants can be removed at later ages.


5. Muscles 

Between breasts and ribcage, muscle layer exists. These muscles significantly affect appearance. Thickness of muscle layer there decreases with age. As this thickness decreases, breasts look plainer and saggier. With regular exercises, these negative consequences can be prevented up to some point.

Changes in breasts with age are generally like mentioned above.
