Breast Lifting

Correct Saggy Breasts and
Lack of Volume Simultaneously and Create Firm Breast Line

What is Breast Lifting?

Saggy breasts are defined based on the line below breasts and location of the nipple. When the nipple is located below the line, it is referred to as saggy breasts. Firm breasts slowly become saggy due to aging, pregnancy and giving birth, dieting and many more reasons. In these cases, saggy breast correction can change saggy breasts to firm breasts by removing fat, breast tissue and excess skin.

Saggy Breasts Self Diagnosis Method

Sagginess of the breasts can be determined by how low the nipples are located based on the line below breasts. For ideal breasts, nipples are located 4-5cm above the line. If nipples are located below the line, correction through surgery is suggested.

Grade A
Nipples are on the line or are slightly lower than the line (within 1cm).
Grade B
Nipples are 1-3 cm lower than the line, but are above undermost breast tissues.
Grade C
Severe saggy breasts where nipples are more than 3 cm lower than the line and nipples completely head to the bottom.

Saggy Breasts Correction Surgery Method

Saggy breast surgery considers degree of breast sagginess, amount of breast tissues, and skin elasticity. Surgery method is decided based on the amount of breast tissue that needs to be removed.
