Almost everyone has heard about breast augmentation, also known as a “boob job,” but few people have heard of a breast lift. Fort Worth women whose breasts have started to sag or droop because of time, gravity, breastfeeding, pregnancies, or weight loss may not be candidates for an augmentation–but you may be a fabulous candidate for a breast lift.

What is a Breast Lift?
Fort Worth women whose breasts are beginning to show signs of sagging often come in asking about breast augmentation. However, just getting implants isn’t always the best route to go to make sure you get beautiful and natural-looking breasts. In fact, some breast lifts are done without using any implants at all. In these cases, Dr. Max may recommend a procedure called a breast lift (mastopexy).
A breast lift is often slightly more complicated than a simple breast augmentation for several reasons. First of all, with sagging breasts, Dr. Max will remove the excess skin of the breast to lift and shape it to your desired look. In many cases, the nipple is pointing downward, and Dr. Max will also reposition it.

Dr. Max will use all of the details that you give him to develop your customized treatment plan that will guide him through the procedure. Dr. Max may also perform an examination during this consultation.
When to Get a Breast Lift?
Fort Worth women should understand that a breast lift on its own will not necessarily change the size of their breasts: only the shape and contour of them. There are a few common indications that you need a breast lift, but you should always consult with Dr. Max before making your final decision.
- Nipple angle – If your nipples point downward, it can be a sign that you would benefit from a lift instead of an augmentation.
- Nipple location – A breast lift may be a better option if your nipples sit underneath the crease of the breast.
- Asymmetrical breasts – For women that have asymmetrical or tuberous breasts, a breast lift can be a terrific option.
Combining a Breast Augmentation and a Breast Lift
Fort Worth patients that undergo breast lifts often use the opportunity to add more size to their breasts with an augmentation. Dr. Max will discuss this option with you during your consultation. Adding more volume to your breasts during a breast lift can help increase their fullness, perkiness, and youthfulness as well.
Health Insurance and Breast Lifts
Another common question we get from our patients is if their health insurance will cover their breast lift. Because health insurance can vary greatly between patients, this is another one of those questions that are difficult to answer without talking with each patient individually. However, based on what we know, most health insurance providers do not cover elective procedures like breast lifts. But there are cases where health insurers will cover some breast procedures for things like a mastectomy and some breast-related diseases. Check with your healthcare provider and make sure you consult your health insurance plan.
Dr. Max believes that every woman should feel 100% confident about herself and her body. If you’re ready to get the breasts you’ve always wanted, then call our Fort Worth office today at (817) 529-9199.
