Can I get a breast lift 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. A breast lift restores a firmer, perkier, and more aesthetically pleasing shape to sagging breasts. This not only can improve a patient’s appearance by restoring her youthful, feminine proportions, but also help bras and swimsuits fit more comfortably and attractively. By removing excess, stretched out skin, reshaping the breast tissue, and raising the nipple & areola into a more forward position, a cosmetic surgeon can create a more youthful breast contour. Stretched, large areolae can also be reduced during breast lift surgery, creating an overall better proportioned, natural looking breast, Actually the perkiness on a person or another, depends on patients skin and breast tissue… Breast augmentation surgery increases or restores breast size using silicone gel implants, saline implants or in some cases, fat transfer. One of the most popular and frequently performed aesthetic surgery procedures, breast augmentation has a long and successful track record in satisfying women who wish to enhance, regain or restore balance to their figures.

Breast lift or augmentation mastopexy
Hi and thanks for the photos. You ask some excellent questions. You do appear to have a mildly tuberous breast bilaterally with asymmetry. You appear to be about a B-C cup breast size. You certainly could elect to have a breast lift without augmentation and your breasts would be firmer, lifted and the nipples higher with a less constricted shape. The cups size would not change but the breasts may appear more projected so outside of a bra, you may appear larger.I believe you would need a circumvertical (Lollipop) skin excision with release and repositioning of the gland (auto-augmentation) to achieve the best long term shape with the least scarring. If there is excess skin in the area between the new nipple position and the bottom of the breast, you may need a short horizontal scar in the fold as well. There is a chance of long term, significantly altered nipple sensation which nobody can accurately put a number on but is in the order of 20%. I hope that helps
