Due to genetics, pregnancy or the natural aging process, a woman’s breast will change in look and feel. For many women, the changes in their appearance can be dramatic. Breast lifts, also known as mastopexies, are a cosmetic procedure that aims to enhance the appearance of the breast for a more youthful and lifted look.
One of the most common reasons for getting a breast lift is breast ptosis (pronounced towsis). Ptosis, or in other words, sagging, of the breast is measured by the position of the nipple-areola complex (NAC) relative to the breast. There are four grades of ptosis: Mild, Moderate, Advanced and Severe. The degree of ptosis is determined by the nipple position and direction.
With this information, an experienced, board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Stanely Okoro will be able to make the right recommendation for your breast lift.
