What is Postpartum Breast Surgery?

We will revitalize the breast to become the beautiful breasts you once had. The standard of sagging breast (Mastopexy) is when the nipples are located inferior to the lower breast line. Depending on the degree of sagging, the breasts can be corrected with a procedure or surgery.

Cause of Postpartum Breast


Decrease of elasticity due to aging


Breasts hang loose due to constant childbirth and breastfeeding


Droopy or small breast due to breastfeeding


Drastic weight gain due to pregnancy


Effects from number of pregnancy

Diagnosis of Postpartum Breast

The degree of debilitated breast can be distinguished by the nipple location from the lower breast line.
Ideal breasts are when the nipples are 4~5cm higher that the breast line, and it should be corrected when it's lower than the breast line.


4~5cm higher than the breast line

A-Rank Mastopexy

Nipples are within 1cm lower than the breast line

B-Rank Mastopexy

Nipples are within 1~3cm lower than the breast line

C-Rank Mastopexy

Nipples are more than 3cm lower than the breast line

Correction Method of Debilitated Breast

Prothesis Insertion

Embed the implant and augment the suspended breast with volume. Most applicable when the breast is little declined.

Incision Around the Areola

The size does not change but the pendent breasts are corrected. The incision is made around the areola, the scar is small, the operation time is short, and recovery is fast.

Incision with Inverted-T

The incision is made around the areola with inverted-T. Most applicable when the breast has excessive fat and recession. Great amount of skin and connecting tissues are removed to escalate the nipples.
