How to get my perky breasts after stopping nursing?

I have received yet another email from a mom worried about her sagging breasts due to breastfeeding. “My breasts are loose and smaller after I stopped nursing my baby. Is there any exercise that can help me to improve the situation? I really want my original bust,” she writes.

What is happening to your body is very normal. As breastfeeding stops, breasts will definitely reduce in size and they will also sag because the skin had originally stretched and now it becomes loose. It is the story of every woman who has become a mother.

Unfortunately, there is nothing that you can do. The sagging and the stretch marks will eventually go away to some extent and you can massage your breasts lightly with almond oil to restore their health somewhat, but please do not be tempted to waste money on any magic pills or creams — they don’t work.

If you can afford it, the best way to get back your perky breasts is to have a breast lift procedure as part of a mommy makeover.
