Would your Breasts pass the Ptosis Test?

Victoria Pakohomova is a Beauty Vacation Adviser for Taqtik. She shares with us some information about a common problem with clients who travel for cosmetic surgery- ptosis. This condition is more commonly referred to as breast sagging, and here she walks us through a test to see if your breasts pass the ptosis test…

Hi beautiful Ladies, Victoria here with the ptosis test! Clients often want to know why their surgeon has recommended a breast lift, along with the breast augmentation they had originally booked. They send in pictures of their breasts and are surprised when doctors recommend a lift due to ptosis (breast sagging). Today I will help you to decide whether you too suffer from ptosis, and what can be done!

Common causes of ptosis
  • Childbirth and breastfeeding.
  • Bodyweight fluctuations- especially after losing a lot of weight in the short period.
  • Genetics.
  • Hormonal fluctuations.
  • Implant removal.
  • Aging.
  • Gravity- yes! The power of gravity influences breast tissue and inevitably pulls it down based on the laws of nature.
The breast ptosis test

Let us have a personal test on our breast condition.

Ideally the nipple should a few centimetres above the inframammary crease (the crease just under your breast where they meet your chest).

  1. Take off your bra and stand in front of the mirror.
  2. Place a ruler in the crease, where the breast and ribcage meet.
  3. Let your breasts hang over the ruler
  4. If your nipples are less than three centimetres above the ruler you may have ptosis.
  5. If you don’t have ptosis but aren’t happy with size – can just proceed with breast augmentation.
  6. If you don’t have ptosis but aren’t happy with size- a breast lift may be required.

Breast ptosis stages.

First degree ptosis- the nipple is at or slightly below the infra mammary fold, then you may be able to have a breast augmentation without internal lifting.

Second degree ptosis- the nipple is one-three centimeters below the fold. You are a candidate for lifting with or without implants.

Third degree ptosis– the nipple is lower than three centimeters. These cases are candidates for breast lift or even a super breast lift with or without implants.

Ladies, if you do find that you have breast ptosis it’s not a problem! There are multiple destinations available on the Taqtik marketplace that can help with breast augmentations and breast lifts.

And the result from MY test? First degree breast ptosis, which is not surprising after four years of breastfeeding, body weight fluctuations and aging!

Miss Grand Phuket visits Phuket Plastic Surgery Clinic

Victoria Pakohomova is a Beauty Vacation Adviser for Taqtik clients travelling to Phuket, Thailand. On one of her regular visits to Phuket Plastic Surgery Clinic she had the opportunity to meet the beautiful Tharina Botes- Miss Grand Phuket 2019!

One rainy Phuket May morning I had arrived at the hospital to a crowd of video operators and photographers. It took me a moment to realize that all this attention was not for me! It was for a beauty queen. She was the tall, slender and amazingly beautiful Miss Tharina Botes, winner of Miss Phuket 2019.

23-year-old Tharina is half South African and half Thai. After making it to the final few contestants in the Miss South Africa contest a year ago, she came back to Thailand to realize her dream. She earned the Miss Grand Phuket crown this year in May, and next year she will compete for the Miss Grand Thailand competition. Tharina is now Phuket’s most adored person, and in my opinion a nice, open minded and warm woman.

But what she is doing in Plastic Surgery Clinic? Marketing for Phuket Plastic Surgery Clinic (PPSI)? Yes, but not only that, she came to improve her beauty with a breast augmentation!

Even the beautiful and successful are eager for a better breast shape and more womanly proportions. Miss Phuket had chosen Doctor Sanguan as the best breast professional, and the result was even better than she expected. Tharina had a quick recovery, no pain and fantastic service from the hospital team. This service has proven to be the same for all clients, regardless of whether they are a Beauty Queen or not. Miss Grand Phuket was able to return to normal active life and amazing photo sessions just a few days after the procedure.

You can find out more about Tharina and her recovery on Instagram- @tharinabotes or view her PPSI interview video here.

Tharina shows us just how easy it is follow your dreams,  improve your quality of life, and become more self-confident and happy you.
