What is Breast Lifting?

Breast lifting is a common surgery for those who delivered baby and did breast feeding. 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, breast lifting can change saggy breasts to firm breasts by removing fat, breast tissue and excess skin.

Self Diagnosis Method of Saggy Breasts

Saggy 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.

Breast Lifting Self Diagnosis Method
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.

Surgery Methods of Breast Lifting

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