Breast ptosis / Stages of ptosis

Breast ptosis (mastoptosis) is a gradual sagging of breasts. They lose elasticity, breast skin gets stretched and the dense glandular tissue is substituted by fat.

There are 4 stages of breast ptosis:

Breast ptosis stages

  • Ptosis, stage A: the nipple descends to the level of inframammary crease (a skinfold beneath the breast)
  • Ptosis, stage B: the nipple is below the inframammary crease but still directed outward.
  • Ptosis, stage C: the nipple looks downward and is below the inframammary crease.
  • Pseudoptosis, the major part of the breast is below inframammary crease, but the nipple is above it.

Breast lift is also called mastopexy

Mastopexy is a plastic surgery intervention aimed to lift the breast skin.

Indications for mastopexy:

1. Asymmetric right and left breasts

2. Elongated and flat breast

3. Elongated shape of areola

4. Presence of white, pink or bluish stretch marks or scars

5. Nipples are at the level of inframammary crease or below.

6. Small breast size and mass

Types of mastopexy

Periareolar or circular mastopexy

This technique is used in minor sagging of the breast, stage A ptosis

Phases of the breast lift.

  • The incision is made around the areola
  • Breast tissues are neatly re-distributed
  • The nipple and the areola are moved into a new position
  • The size of areola gets a little smaller.

The post-surgery scar is located right on the border between the areola and breast skin, so it is almost imperceptible.

Circular mastopexy

Vertical mastopexy

This technique is used in significant sagging of the breast, stage B ptosis.

Phases of the breast lift.

  • The incision is made around the nipple and vertically downward, to the inframammary crease
  • Excessive overstretched skin is removed
  • New breast shape is formed.
  • Breast tissues are neatly re-distributed
  • The nipple and the areola are moved into a new position

Post-surgery, a nearly invisible scar around the areola and a vertical scar going from areola to the inframammary crease will be left.

Vertical mastopexy

Anchor-style, T-shaped or L-shaped mastopexy

This technique is used for severe breast sagging, in stage C of ptosis and significant excess skin.

Phases of the breast lift.

The incision is made around the nipple, vertically downward and around the inframammary crease, to one or to both sides from the vertical incision.

The excessive skin of the areola, and the lower and side parts of the breast is removed.

Skin and fat tissues are lifted as needed

The nipple and the areola are moved into a new position

A nearly invisible scar in the shape of an anchor is left post-surgically.
