Sagging Breast, Lift Without Implant? (photo)
Doctor Answers 16
Lollipop breast lift without implants is very effective.
1) You look like a great candidate for a good internal vertical (Lejour technique) breast lift without implants. In any case, implants alone (without a lift) will not give you a good result.
2) Your right breast is a little larger and the symmetry can be improved. Also your areolas need to be made smaller.
3) Women accept the scar very well because they love the new shape.
Breast Lift Only?
Thank you for the question and pictures.
Yes, you can have a breast lift without breast implants assuming:
1. You will be satisfied with the breast size/fullness/ shape without breast implants placed.
2.You will be okay with the presence of scars ( which can potentially be abnormally pigmented or wide…). These scars will likely be around the areola and/or vertically oriented.
You will be best served by meeting with board certified plastic surgeons. Communicate your goals clearly and asked to see lots of examples of their work.
Hi There! The answer is yes, however it is a bit difficult to tell from the photo that you provided, you will need to have realistic expectations. The nipple will be raised by about 1 inch and can not expect a lot projection without having an implant.

Sagging Breast Lift Without Implants Possibilities
You may be a good candidate for a minimal "short" scar technique breast lift without an implant. An exam would be required but your photos suggest that this is a great option for you. If more superior breast fullness is desired then consider a fat transfer procedure at the time of the lift - The "California Breast Lift" is a procedure which transfers unwanted fat from the abdomen or thighs to the breasts. See the below links for additional details.
Lift Without Implant
If you size is satisfactory, a lift can certainly be done. You will have an incision around the areola, and a vertical incision that may contain pigment from the areola and therefore may be darker than the breast skin. A consult with a plastic surgeon can help work through the pros and cons.
Thanks and best wishes.
Breast Lift Without Breast Implants
Patients who are happy with the size of their breasts but dissatisfied with sagging or drooping often pursue breast lift surgery without breast implants. Breast lift surgery without breast implants is actually very common. During breast lift surgery, excess skin is removed and the remaining skin and tissue is lifted and tightened for firmer, perkier breasts. Patients who wish to add volume to their breasts during breast lift surgery can opt to have breast implants inserted during the procedure. It is important to schedule a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon who has experience performing breast lift surgery to discuss your surgical desires and determine all of your options.
Breast lift without implants
Of course you can have a lift without implants. It is difficult to determine which type of lift from the Ultimate Breast Lift series you are a candidate for from the angle of your photos. The UBL and the Mini UBL lift breasts without a vertical scar that weaken the skin envelope and therefore decrease the longevity of the lift.
Hope this helps.
Breast lift without implants
A breast lift without implants is an option. But you need to think about what are your volume goals. Do you want to be fuller? Can just a breast lift technique achieve your goals? All of this can be answered with a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area. Good luck!
Your pictures reveal grade 2 ptosis ( saggyness) on the left breast and grade 3 ptosis on the right breast. You also have significant asymmetry, the right breat is bigger than the left breast. If you elect only a lift without implants, your breasts will remain uneven unless you reduce the right breast. If you go with lift only, you can have a mini lift ( purse string ) on the left breast and full lift (key hole) on the right breast. The advantages of breast implants are : correction of the asymmetry and minilift procedure only on both breasts. Be sure to select an experienced board certified plastic surgeon.
Best of luck,
