Breast Lifting for Saggy Breasts

Breast lifting is a common procedure for women who have given birth and breastfed their children. Saggy breasts are defined by the line beneath the breasts and the location of the nipple. Saggy breasts occur when the nipple is located beneath the line. Firm breasts gradually sag as a result of ageing, pregnancy and childbirth, dieting, and a variety of other factors.

Saggy Breasts Self-Diagnosis Method

Saggy breasts can be identified by the location of the nipples on the line below the breasts. Nipples should be 4-5cm above the line for ideal breasts. If the nipples are located below the line, surgery is recommended.


Grade A

Nipples are either on or slightly below the line (within 1cm).

Grade B

Nipples are 1-3 cm lower than the line, but are above undermost breast tissues.

Grade C

Severe saggy breasts with nipples that are more than 3 cm lower than the line and nipples completely head to the bottom.

Surgery Method

Breast lifting surgery takes into account the degree of sagging, the amount of breast tissue, and the elasticity of the skin. Surgery method is determined by the amount of breast tissue that must be removed.
