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.

Natural or non-surgical breast lift

There are no creams or exercises that can firm up your breasts. Other than the wounder-bra the only other thing is to get a breast implant in addition to breast lift. adding volume to the breast can to some extend reduce the extend of necessary breast lift and thus scars.

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?

+1
There are no true non-surgical options to improve the actual appearance of your breasts.  No creams or lotions will firm the breasts and provide a lift.  Push-up bras are one means of improving the appearance in clothing.  It is common for the breast to lose its firmness and uplifted appearance over time, which is also accentuated with age, pregnancy/breast feeding, weight gain/loss, and gravity. This results in breast ptosis, or sagging of the breast, with a “deflated” appearance. Women seek the mastopexy procedure to regain the previous youthful appearance of her breasts and women report increased confidence, self-esteem, and femininity once achieving this desired shape and fullness. Breast lifts may or may not be performed with implants – the implant would add increased size but also greater fullness in the upper pole of the breasts which creates more cleavage.  Hope that this helps!  Best wishes!

Alternatives to breast lift

Without photos it is hard to comment. Some patients can get away with just an implant- if the nipples are not too low. But that is still surgery.

Natural Breast Lift

Unfortunately there is no nonsurgical way to lift the breasts. There are several different techniques that can be performed depending on the amount of breast sagging you have. In general, if the nipples are at or above the level of the inframammary creases a minimal lift with an incision just around the areola will work. Breast implants will also slightly lift the breasts. If the nipples are below the level of the inframammary creases a more effective lift as needed. We used to perform the inverted T or so-called anchor mastopexy. That produced large scars and breast flattening. We now almost always do vertical mastopexy which results in shorter scars. Frequently I use implants to help fill out the upper pole of the breasts. Seek a plastic surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and who is also a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

Sagging and doesn't want lift

Surgery is the only way to get a breast lift thats not temporary. If you don't want cosmetic surgery, then you will have to be happy with your sagging breasts.

No non surgical options for sagging breasts

+1

There are many different types of breast lift and each one is designed to take care of increasing degrees of breast sagging or ptosis.  Unfortunately there are no short cuts with breast lift surgery.  Many times the patients would prefer a lift with less incisions but it is not always possible.   If you do not want surgery then consider a well fitting bra.

Nonsurgical Options Will Not Correct Breast Sag; Your Best Option is Breast Lift Surgery

+1

It’s not unusual for women to be unhappy with the sagginess of their breasts. It’s also common for them to be fearful of undergoing a surgical procedure to correct this problem. This may be related to anesthesia, scarring or financial resources.
Unfortunately, there are no creams, exercises or laser treatments that effectively treat this problem. The use of a push-up bra can occasionally disguise the problem, but actual corrections require breast lift surgery.
