You do not look as if you need a lift. Since your are opposed to implants, schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area to discuss fat grafting. It could deliver the extra volume that you desire, using your own fat. Although you don't look to have a lot of that either....

Thank you for your question and photos. You do not appear to be a candidate for a breast lift as you show no signs of ptosis (sagging). However, you are at an excellent starting point for a breast augmentation. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss the possibilities for you.
All the best,
Lift with no implants?
From your photos, I would agree with my colleagues, I believe you would be a better candidate for a breast augmentation, either with implants or free fat transfer, than with a breast lift. Overall your breasts and nipples are in relatively good position. A breast lift will not add significant fullness to the breasts. Even a modest size implant would give you better upper pole fullness. Best wishes, Dr. Lepore.
Lift with implants
Thank you for your question. This is a common concern, and unfortunately, having only a lift will not create more fullness. In many cases women feel that a lift makes them appear smaller and choose to have implants to regain the fullness in the upper pole of the breast as well as to create cleavage. Breast implants have been studied for many years and are a safe option for women. Good luck with your decision.
from your photos your nipple areola complex is in good posiotion. You just have deflation of your breast. You require implants to fill out the skin envolope. A lift tightens the skin but does not give the volume you require.
Lift with no implants?
It appears that you have mild pseudoptosis from volume loss in the breasts. This means nipple position is ok but the breast has bottomed out a little. A breast lift would not help you since there is really no extra skin to tighten. Breast augmentation with implants or possibly fat grafting would be two options to consider.
Thank you for your question.
A breast lift elevate the nipple position and tighten the skin of the lower portion of the breast. It will not change the upper pole fullness of the breast, that can only be achieved with an implant. Good luck with your deicison.
Lift with or without implants
Hello dear, thanks for your question and provided information as well..
The breasts may lose their elasticity and firmness which can be caused
by different factors such as pregnancy, massive weight loss, lactation
and aging. To reaffirm the breasts and restore the natural look your
surgeon can perform a mastopexy or breast lift with augmentation such as
silicone implants, you will get very nice results, contact a board
certified plastic surgeon, I recommend you soft cohesive silicone
implants about 350 cc's you will look pretty and they will be perky.
who goes to a consultation for drooping breasts (ptosis) or volume loss
after pregnancy (pseudoptosis) almost always have one very important
question. "Can my drooping be corrected with just implants or do I need a
Implants alone will correct drooping when:
- Breast drooping is mild
- The nipple is still near the center breast and does not point downward
- There is some visible skin beneath the nipple/areola when looking at the breasts straight on.
- The patient is okay with being at least a cup size larger
A breast lift (with or without an implant) is better when:
- Breast drooping is moderate or severe
- The nipple is at the bottom of the breast or points downward
- There is no visible skin under the nipple/areola when looking at the breasts straight on.
- The patient is already a C or D cup breast size and doesn't want to be larger
- The areola is too large and the patient wants it reduced
also show the patient photographs of a spectrum of breast scar present
after a breast lift in order to check their tolerance for this scar.
Most patients are surprised how little the scar shows and are okay with
proceeding. If the patient really needs a breast lift, but is concerned
about the scars, I will suggest they wait on surgery. In time the breast
appearance problems will usually outweigh their concern about the
I use implants in combination with a lift when:
- The patient wants to be larger in addition to being less droopy
- The patient desires to maintain projection and roundness of the breast mound
drooping is severe..... I recommend to see a board certified plastic
surgeon for a personal evaluation and also to talk about your goals.
Good luck :)
Left versus implants.
Based on your photos. It appears as if you really need volume added to her breasts as you do not have bad ptosis (sagging). I am not sure a lift without implants will help you achieve your goals. I would certainly recommend an in person consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon.
You would not be achieving much of a change with a lift and mostly adding scars to your breasts. I would recommend volume, either implants or fat grafting.
