Women who are considering breast lift surgery frequently ask this question. You absolutely can have a breast lift without having implants. After all, it totally depends on what you are looking for!
A breast lift (mastopexy) is a procedure that is used to correct sagging breasts by removing excess skin and to lift and reshape the original breast tissue. Breast lift surgery can even reposition the areola and/or nipple for the perfect placement on the breast. The results of a breast lift traditionally do not significantly increase breast volume but can create a more pleasing profile and youthful appearance.
Mastopexy Without Implants Fixes Saggy Breasts Only
Breasts can sag for many reasons. Some women develop large breasts from an early age and lack of support and gravity causes them to elongate and droop. Post pregnancy and/or breastfeeding, aging, and weight loss can all contribute to sagging breasts.
A breast lift is a wonderful option for women who would like to repair the look of their sagging breasts.
Each woman is unique and there are varying factors that will make mastopexy without implants a viable solution. For some women, a breast lift will provide all the volume and lift they desire but for others, it may not be optimal without added implants.

What Are the Options for Small or Flat Sagging Breasts?
Breast lifts can also be done in conjunction with breast implants for those desiring to add volume and cleavage as well as lift their bust line. The procedures, when done together, help improve firmness, create a fuller shape and reduce sagging. Previously, we’ve covered the topic of mastopexy with implants.
