Abstract A definition of ptosis of the breast is given which permits differentiation of several kinds of defects to be made: pseudoptosis, partial ptosis, and true ptosis. In case of true ptosis, three degrees are described according to the nipple relation to the submammary fold and skin brassiere. An association with hypoplasia is described. The corrective techniques chosen are different according to the various types of ptosis and their possible association with various types of hypoplasia. The subpectoralis augmentation is used to insert the prosthesis in all cases.
