An example of one of the cases of Breast Ptosis


This patient asked for advice about the aesthetic request for her breast. She had 2 pregnancies and after each she breastfed for 1 month. Her request related exclusively to the breast. She complained about their sagging appearance. The patient wanted to raise her breast without increasing the volume.

The examination revealed a clear expression of the volume of glandular tissue in relation to the figure of the patient with a large surplus of skin surrounding the mammary gland, which caused the manifestation of the patient’s sagging, and flabby breast.

This patient was intervened to eliminate ptosis of the breast by performing an intervention in the form of an “inverted T” intervention that involved redistributing the mammary gland to its proper location, returning to the previous state on the basis of an individual approach to the skin surrounding the mammary gland and to achieve an optimal arrangement of areola size. This intervention made it possible to achieve a natural look of the breast in full harmonious accordance with the figure of the patient.
