Grades of Ptosis (sagging of breasts) & Breast lift

The degree of ptosis, or sagging, of your breasts, is assessed to determine the procedure that is best for you. There are generally three degrees of ptosis, which are determined by the position of the areola relative to the inframammary fold and the sternum. In general, minor ptosis exists if the areola lies at the inframammary fold. If the areola lies approximately one to two centimeters below the inframammary fold, the breasts have moderate ptosis, whereas the areola may lie 2 – 3 centimeters below the inframammary fold and rotate downward in cases of severe breast ptosis.

The anchor technique involves an anchor-shaped incision( inverted T) that extends around the top of the areola and laterally across the lower portion of the breast.

Procedure

An incision along the pre-marked lines. The incision extends beyond the upper perimeter of the areola. This area marks the new upper perimeter of the areola. The area below the areola will be pulled together and tightened, resulting in a more upright breast position.

The uppermost perimeter of the areola is sutured to the outermost perimeter of the incision. In doing so, the areola and breast tissue are lifted to a new, more upright position.
The incision is closed by placing sutures along the vertical midline and inframammary fold, as well as around the perimeter of the areola. A surgical drain may be placed inside each breast. Lastly, steri-strips or gauze bandages may be applied in order to protect the incision sites as you heal.
