Due to the effects of gravity and the aging process, breasts begin to sag over the years. Different types of breast lifts are available depending on your degree of breast sagging, or breast ptosis. The best way to quantify this degree of sagging is with something called a ptosis grade.

Created in 1976 by Dr. P. Regnault, the ptosis grade system helps your plastic surgeon decide on the ideal breast lift for your aesthetic desires and goals. Crescent lifts are typically used for the milder ptosis grades, and anchor lifts are better suited for the more extreme grades of breast ptosis.
