Ptosis and the Breast Lift

Published on November 21, 2019

Interested in a breast lift? Breast lift surgery is a respected and time-tested type of procedure that can aid in removal of excess tissue and reduce sagging. The technical term for sagging is “ptosis,” and the amount which a breast sags is called its “ptosis grade.”

A person’s ptosis grade is determined by gauging the position of the areola in relation to the inframammary fold (breast fold), or crease. This fold is the area where the breast tissue meets the ribcage. Different amounts of ptosis can occur in each breast, so a person may have a separate grade for each breast.

A consultation with an experienced professional will give you a better idea of what to expect during your breast lift procedure. Dr. White is a skilled medical professional with years of experience. Set up a consultation by contacting our office.
