Abstract

I proposed a classification for breast augmentation candidates that was published in 1978,6 1983,7 and 19898; the classification system was designed to indicate which patients suffered ptosis as an effect of the ageing process in subsequent years, and what should be offered: simple breast augmentation versus the lifting of the areola, or mastopexy. No mention was made of the circumareolar technique in this earlier text.
