The degree of ptosis is generally discussed in terms of the relative position of the NAC to the inframmary fold:
Sometimes the NAC is in the correct position above or at the fold but the breast tissue sags well below the fold. This is termed pseudopstosis.
The treatment for ptosis depends on its severity.
Treatment may include breast augmentation alone, breast lift (mastopexy) alone, or breast reduction alone or a combination of all three. Breast augmentation involves the surgical placement of a correctly sized Motiva cohesive gel silicone breast implant or with fat taken from another part of the body following liposuction.
