How to improve saggy breasts ? Plastic surgery ?

User Profile
I am a young female and I have saggy breasts. I know it is not normal for my age and as a result I have extremely low self esteem, especially when it comes to men. I am wondering whether or not I would be able to have an operation to uplift my breasts on the NHS? If not, is there anything I can do to help change them without surgery? Thankyou for your time and help.

Your breasts can be corrected only with surgery. You can consult some plastic surgeon about this. I'm not an expert on the English medical system, but in my country plastic surgeries are paid for by Health insurance only if they are medically indicated. Examples of medically necessary procedures include the reconstructive plastic surgeries that are necessary after some injury or disease (usually tumors). Aesthetic plastic surgeries (enlarging or lifting the breasts) are usually not paid by the health insurance because they are usually not medically indicated but only for asked by the patents.
