I am 21 years old with very saggy breasts.I have been both very underweight and overweight and have almost constantly fluctuated between the two over the last 10 years. I am currently a little overweight butworking towards a healthy weight and I exercise a lot.What can I do at the moment to prevent furthur sagging? I would contemplate a lift when healthy,but I am put off by scars and wouldnt want any implants. Is it possible to have a lift without implants and in a way with minimal scars?

Prevent sagging by breast weight transfer
There is a new technique called The Ultimate Breast Lift which involves transferring the breast weight to the underlying muscles. The advantage of this technique is that the weight of your breasts are supported by your muscle, rather that just your skin envelope. This results is pain relief and it provides support despite weight changes. The technique is done without any vertical scars and does not require implants. You are an excellent candidate for this new procedure.
Best of Luck,

How to prevent sagging
I think that wearing a good support bra is really the only thing you can do to try to reduce the amount of sagging. Especially during exercise and avoid activities that cause a lot of bouncing up and down on a regular basis.
Unfortunately it is impossible to prevent further sagging. Really controlling it is the right term. The body will go through its own changes overtime.Yes, you can certainly have a lift without placing an implant.
