Ptosis is another word for sagging, and if you’re experiencing the negative effects of gravity on the breasts, you have breast ptosis. In order to take steps towards correcting this problem with a breast lift, it’s helpful to know your breasts’ ptosis grade.

The ptosis grade is a system that was created by Dr. P. Regnault in 1976. It’s a method of accurately describing the degree of a patient’s breast sagging, which aids in choosing the right surgical technique to correct the issue. Crescent, donut, vertical, and anchor lifts are all possibilities means to address different grades of ptosis.
