Breastfeeding Not Linked To Sagging

Breastfeeding does not increase breast sagging in women, a University of Kentucky plastic surgeon has found.

The study found no difference in the degree of breast ptosis -- the medical term for sagging of the breast -- for those women who breastfed and those who did not.

However, the study found breast sagging was linked to age, the number of pregnancies and smoking.
