A breast lift procedure is a popular solution for the stretched skin in the chest area that is common after pregnancy, breastfeeding or ageing. A breast lift without implants can help reshape your breasts using fat from the body to create a more natural look and feel.
As the breasts stretch and lengthen, they can also lose tissue, causing them to droop and lose their youthful look. All women are affected by this at some point, and the team at Me Clinic can offer a solution via a form of breast surgery that can help you achieve your desired look without the need for implants. Read on to learn more about this procedure.
Surgical Warning: Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.

What changes can a breast lift without implants create?
A breast lift without implants offers a more natural way to reshape the breast and can create a firm appearance. Slightly different from a breast augmentation, the shape and position can all be crafted to a look that you desire.
The benefits of breast lift surgery without using implants include:
- Rehabilitation of breast position
- Improved firmness
- Nipple elevation
- Improved symmetry between breasts
- Removal of excess tissue
Knowing if you are a suitable candidate for the breast lift without implants
There are some important points about this breast lift surgery procedure to consider that will also determine your suitability:
- This procedure will not alter the size of your breasts
- Breast development, childbirth, and breastfeeding should cease before this procedure as the ability to breastfeed may be affected
- Breasts of any shape and size can be lifted, but the length of results will depend on breast size
Those who are physically fit with realistic expectations and fully developed breasts may be suitable for this procedure. If you have lost firmness, shape or your breasts have an elongated or pendulous look, this may be the procedure for you. Your breast shape prior to surgery determines the outcome of the procedure.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if a breast lift or augmentation is what I need?
This will be determined during your consultation; however, it often is determined by the level of breast sagging and required nipple position, the detachment of chest wall, your desired outcome, and a range of other factors.
What will my recovery process be like?
You will be able to head home on the same day as your surgery. You may experience some discomfort, pain, swelling or bruising; however, you will see a decrease of this after a couple of weeks. Resting on your back or side, and drinking plenty of water is recommended to help with your recovery.
When will the results be evident?
The swelling will settle over a six-week period and a timeframe of between 3-6 months will reveal the final results.
Are there any risks?
All surgical procedures involve risk, most commonly infection, bleeding, bruising and swelling. This procedure is relatively safe; however, with the most common risks being scarring or change in nipple sensation.
What if there are other issues with my breasts?
A breast lift addresses a range of concerns. For example, it can help rectify nipples that point downward due to breast sagging. Breast tissue can be repositioned, creating a more attractive look with forward-facing nipples. Your nipple and areola should not sit lower than the crease, which is underneath your breast.
A breast lift is also a way to rectify asymmetrical breasts creating a more balanced and pleasant appearance. Please note, most women have one breast slightly larger than the other; this does not mean surgery is required.
