Natural Breast Lift

I have sagging boobs and want to know what treatment is available. I don't want to do cosmetic surgery.

Non-surgical Breast Lift - Not effective

For sagging breasts with excess skin or a low set nipple, only a surgical breast lift can help place the nipple where it belongs and increase overall fullness of your breast. I would not waste money on any non-surgical options as you will likely regret it.

Natural breast lift?

Surgery is the only thing you can do to make your breasts perkier. You can try strengthening your chest muscles, which may make your breasts protrude more, however it won't be that effective. Your only option is a bra if you don't want surgery.

Breast Lift Alternatives

The only alternative is surgery is a push-up or specialty bra.  I would suggest that you consult with a well trained board certified plastic surgeon in your area.

Unfortunately not

There is no durable way to lift and reshape ptotic or droopy breasts without some type of surgical intervention. There are some laser companies that claim that their lasers, when applied onto the breast skin, can "lift" the breast, but when you look carefully at their before and after pictures, there is very little if any improvement, and certainly if you need a significant lift or have thin skin, this will absolutely not work.

If you are truly averse to any type of surgical procedure, the only option that isleft is a good bra with excellent support.

Breast Lift

Mastopexy is a procedure to move the nipple areola to a normal position, reduce the areolar size to a youthful diameter, remove and even up sagging tissue, and create a fuller more youthful shape to the breast mound. it can often be done without an implant as long as you understand that you will be slightly smaller after the surgery and not have as much cleavage and upper pole fullness as women that choose an implant. Look at lots of picture of before/after of women with and without implants and decide what is right for you. Good Luck!!

Natural breast lift

Your breasts can appear lifted by wearing certain bras or clothing.  However, if you truly want your breasts to be lifted, you will need a surgical procedure.  This could be with or without implants.  

Best of luck,

Breast Rejuvenation

Thankyo you for your question. Unfortunately, the only option available at this time to significantly change the size or shape of the breast is some form of surgery. The type of surgery recommended will depend on what problem(s) needs to be addressed. Sagging breasts will require a lift to some degree. Consult with two or more board certified plastic surgeons in your area to learn your options.

Breast Lift

It would be great if there were some kind of exercise, magic wand or cream that could perk up the breasts.  From the surgical standpoint, the best option for lifting the breasts is either a breast augmentation and/or a breast lift. Sometime a combination of the two procedures will provide the best results possible.

Natural breast lift

If you don't want surgery, bras are your only option.  Creams and pills do not help.  Best wishes as you gather information.

No surgery

Breast that have loss support after pregnancy do not lift naturally. Surgery is the only option that will give you an acceptable result. A consultation will help you understand options.
