If you have lost the perky contour of your youthful bust line, a breast lift performed at our practice serving Keller, Fort Worth, and Southlake, Texas can help you achieve the breast contour you desire.
The effects of time, gravity, and pregnancy can play havoc on a woman’s breasts. Many women suffer dissatisfaction with the size, shape, symmetry and position of their breasts as a result. Commonly, the breast loses volume, begins to droop, and the nipple/areolar complex descends onto the abdomen. In certain situations when breast shape is relatively preserved, a simple breast augmentation may correct the problem. Often however, this is not enough. Mastopexy is the medical term for a breast lift. The specific goals of breast lift procedures include:
- Elevation of the nipple/areolar complex
- Reduction of loose skin
- Correction of breast asymmetry
- Improvement in the overall shape of the breast
At our Keller, Fort Worth, and Southlake practice, breast lift procedures are performed through several different patterns of incisions. In general, the greater the ptosis (droopiness) of the breast, the greater the length and complexity of the incision pattern will be. Incision patterns include:
- Around the nipple
- Anchor pattern incisions

Breast lift procedures can be combined with breast reduction or breast augmentation to independently affect size. When considering mastopexy with augmentation, women must understand their implant options. Implants come in various sizes, shapes, and textures and can be either saline or silicone filled. Many surgeons will not perform mastopexy and augmentation together. However, Dr. Rumella has devised surgical techniques to perform the two procedures simultaneously in certain situations with your beauty and safety in mind. As for reductions, patients are often thrilled how their breasts feel and fit better in clothes. Explaining these options and translating your desires and goals into a surgical plan is an important part of a surgical consultation with Dr. Rumalla. Breast lift procedures are usually performed on an outpatient basis in our surgery center in Southlake or in a hospital under general anesthesia. Recovery from surgery is generally well tolerated. Ultimately, breast lift procedures are designed to make you feel happy and comfortable when you look in the mirror.
