Sagging breasts (mastoptosis) causes loss of confidence

Sagging breasts can be a natural process in aging, but in many cases, the breasts sag either from their weight as they gain volume or from the loss of elasticity following rapid weight loss. Moreover, it is common for the breasts to sag from pregnancy and breastfeeding in which they undergo changes in shape and size.

When this happens, the patients experience difficulty wearing high-exposure garments like lingerie or swimwear, and in severe cases, they can undergo stress and depression from the feeling of losing their youth or femininity.

Therefore, if you are concerned about your sagging breasts, you should consider a lift that restores your breasts’ shape and firmness and regain your confidence.

Causes of Sagging Breasts (Mastoptosis)
  • Loss of skin elasticity due to aging

  • Deformation from pregnancy and breastfeeding

  • Congenital sagging

  • Rapid weight change

Induce mental stress, such as psychological decline and loss of confidence

We offer an optimal solution with our detailed case classification

Breast sagging varies in degree by individual, and, therefore, it is important to precisely determine the severity and make a proper correction.

BANOBAGI aims to create the ideal breast shape in proportion to the collarbone, the nipples, and the under-breast line; and our classification system puts each case of breast sagging into one of the three categories, based on the location of the nipples relative to the under-breast line.

In addition, we classify our breast sagging cases by the breast size and the cause. This makes our sagging-breast lift more personalized, accurate, and much more effective.

    This can be selected when the concern is simply the sagging, rather than the breast size. The lifting effect is achieved by strongly stimulating the dermis with laser, which regenerates collagen and elastin. As it is not a surgical method, Belody Laser lift is a relatively convenient way to make improvements.

  • Breast Reshaping
