I want my breasts to be a little more lifted but I'm in no way ready for all the scars associated with full on breast lift surgery. Is it possible to get a breast lift without surgery, like with a skin tightening laser (Titan?) or something?
Breast Lift Without Surgery?

Skin tightening lasers will not lft breasts
Non surgical skin tightening technologies such as Laser, Radiofrequency (Thermage), and Infra red energy (Titan and LuxIR Deep) can only produce about 10-20% skin tightening in the face, a structure which does not have a heavy gravitational pull.
The breast weighs more and is subject to much more gravitational pull than is the face. These forces overcome any skin tightening effects of the non surgical skin tightening therapies.
Don't waste your money on these therapies.
If you really need a breast lift find an experienced Plastic Surgeon Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and discuss a Dermal mastopexy and see photos of the scars produced.
In my experience most women are so happy with the shape and look of the lifted breast that they are not concerned about the scarring.

Can breasts be "lifted" without surgery?
NO. A"lift " entails raising the nipple/areola complex back to it's original anatomic position and refoming the breast mound by taking in the breast skin (skin bra) in a three dimensional manner.
Lasers ,suction drugs.exercises can not do this. Se my site for other replys to similar questions and pix.

Non-operative techniques to lift the breasts are typically viewed as quite subtle. For visible and immediate results a surgical breast lift will provide the most optimal results. It will also rejuvenate the appearance, as well.
When skin is stretched creating redundant skin, it cannot be returned to its natural position without the help of surgical intervention.
A consultation with a board certified surgeon will help determine what type of breast lift will be better for a patient since there are variations.
I hope this helps.

Breast Lift Surgery Is Your Best Option
Breast sag can adversely impact a women’s self image, self confidence, and self esteem and for this reason many seek correction of this problem. However, they are often afraid of surgery and therefore look for other non surgical solutions. These may include laser treatments, exercises, pills and topical creams. None of these treatments have been shown to be effective in addressing breast sag.
Unfortunately, surgery with removal of excess skin is necessary to correct this problem. This requires a breast lift procedure.
Non surgical mastopexy
You are asking for a miracle cure that unfortunately does not exist. There are no definitive methods to tighten the skin despite the hype. If we could do it with breasts then we could do this for the rest of the body and eliminate face lifts, tummy tucks, etc.
Although we may disagree on many different topics, it appears from my colleagues opinions below that we all agree that there are no satisfactory non-surgical breast lifts.
