How to lift breasts without surgery

Updated March 23, 2017

Breasts give in to the forces of nature and begin to sag. For those who are squeamish about breast-lift surgery, there are more natural ways to return your bust's perkiness without going under the knife.

Wear a bra. If you go without support on a regular basis, gravity is working against you. Simply wearing a bra will help keep your bustline from sagging and create a better-looking decolletage.

Find a bra that says "push-up" on the tag. Usually, this type of bra has extra padding on the outside and bottom of each cup, lifting the breasts up and in. This is the simplest way to boost your bust and increase your cleavage.

Try massage treatments. Advocates of gentle, non-erotic breast massage believe that it gets rid of waste from the tissues and increases blood flow, toning and enhancing the shape of the breasts. Either perform the massage yourself, using lotion or lubricant, or find a professional masseuse with whom you are comfortable.

Perform pectoral exercises. While some women believe these types of exercises reduce breast mass, when done moderately, they can firm up the bustline and reduce sagging. Push-ups, dumbbell flies and chest presses all strengthen the pectoral muscles, which are found underneath the breasts. Do these exercises three times a week to tone up.

Use over-the-counter formulas. Many creams temporarily firm and tighten skin, creating a natural breast lift. You can find these breast-enhancing formulas at many drugstores or grocery stores. Alternately, order harder-to-find products online. Regular application can keep the breasts toned.

Undergo laser treatment. This new type of noninvasive treatment tightens the skin in the chest area, pulling the breasts upward. No anaesthesia is involved and there's no recovery time, providing almost immediate results. A few visits may be necessary to achieve the desired effect.


Do your research when it comes to laser treatments or over-the-counter formulas. Follow all instructions correctly to avoid injury.


When performing any treatment or using a product, discontinue use if you experience any pain or inflammation and seek professional medical advice.
