Breast Lift

Aging, weight loss, and pregnancy can all cause sagging breasts and make you feel self-conscious about your figure.

Dr. Bruce Hermann specializes in breast surgery and can rejuvenate your silhouette with breast lift surgery.

Our plastic surgeon has helped many patients in Lewisville, Flower Mound, and Denton, TX, experience life-changing results. Here's how...

3 Unique Benefits of Breast Lift Surgery

Breast lift surgery, also called mastopexy, is a popular plastic surgery procedure that can: 

Remove Excess Tissue

Excess fat or skin can make your breasts sag. But a breast lift can remove excess tissue and tighten the skin around your bust line, making your breasts look more youthful and uplifted.

Correct Asymmetrical Breasts

If one of your breasts is a noticeably different shape or size compared to your other breast, a lift can restore symmetry and balance.

Improve Nipple Position

If your nipples are overly large or sag downward below the crease of your breasts, our plastic surgeon can reposition or reshape your nipples during the breast lift procedure.

Why Choose Dr. Hermann for Your Breast Lift?

Highly Trained Doctor

Dr. Hermann is a board-certified plastic surgeon who has learned from the best. Dr. Hermann trained under world-renowned cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgeon Dennis C. Hammond. While training, he mastered the most advanced techniques for breast surgery. When performing your plastic surgery procedure, the doctor will remain focused on your safety and satisfaction every step of the way.

BodyLogic Provider

Our Denton, TX, plastic surgery center is unique because we use the BodyLogic® system to help you visualize your results and decide whether a breast lift is right for you. This system also allows you to consider different shapes, sizes, and types of breast implants, which are often combined with a mastopexy to restore lost volume. BodyLogic is incredibly helpful so you can feel confident about your final decision. 

Is a Breast Lift Right for You?

Did your breasts change after pregnancy?

Although pregnancy and motherhood are joyful times, they can cause unwanted changes throughout your body. If your breasts lose volume or start sagging after you stop breastfeeding, mastopexy can address these issues. 

Has weight loss left you with excess breast tissue?

Weight loss is also an exciting journey, but it can cause sagging skin. A breast lift can tighten the skin around your bust line, helping you achieve a more proportional figure. 

Are you self-conscious about how your breasts look?

Many women struggle with sagging or uneven breasts their whole lives. A breast lift can correct these cosmetic issues and give you the perky silhouette you've always wanted.

Are You a Good Candidate for Breast Lift Surgery?

Ideal candidates for a breast lift include patients who are:

  • Non-smokers
  • At a healthy weight
  • In good overall health
  • Over the age of 18
  • Not planning to have more children
  • Finished breastfeeding
  • Interested in a lift, but do not extensive tissue removal, to achieve their goals

If you are planning to have more children, we recommend that you postpone a breast lift, since pregnancy and childbirth can affect your results and require revision surgery.  

A breast lift can also be combined with other plastic surgery procedures such as a tummy tuck or liposuction into a comprehensive plan such as a mommy makeover

Want Perkiness and Fullness? Consider a Breast Lift with Implants

If you wish to achieve lift and increase the size of your breasts at the same time, Dr. Hermann can combine a breast lift with breast augmentation. An augmentation mastopexy, or a breast lift with implants, is a procedure that enhances the volume and shape of your breasts in a single surgery. Using our in-office BodyLogic system, which precisely assesses your natural breasts and generates previews of your surgery outcomes, Dr. Hermann can help you determine the size and type of breast implant that will best help you achieve your desired results.

Benefits of a Breast Lift with Implants

Following a breast lift with implants, you can generally expect your breasts to be higher up on your chest, perkier in projection, and larger. Rather than undergoing a breast lift alone or a breast augmentation alone, there are some benefits to combining the procedures, including: 

  • Dramatic results
  • Consolidated recovery

Breast Lifts Are a Popular Plastic Surgery Procedure

Dr. Hermann Is an Exclusive Provider of the Short Scar Incision

Dr. Hermann is the only plastic surgeon in Denton County who performs the short scar incision technique. He believes that anything other than the short scar technique is not acceptable for his patients. Larger incisions on the breast tissue generally mean a greater risk of complications and larger scars, so Dr. Hermann believes that the short scar technique carries the best safety and results.

What to Expect during Your Breast Lift

Before scheduling your breast lift procedure, Dr. Hermann will invite you to our Denton, TX, practice for a consultation. During the consultation, you discuss your personal cosmetic goals and concerns and customize a treatment plan to suit your individual needs. He will also review your medical history and administer a detailed examination in order to determine your candidacy. Because we dedicate a great amount of care and attention to the patient during the consultation, our consultations typically last about an hour or longer.

Then, our plastic surgeon will schedule your procedure. Every step of your surgery from the first consultation to the final suture will be performed by Dr. Hermann.

Day of Procedure


Dr. Hermann offers general anesthesia to help you feel more comfortable during your breast lift surgery. This type of sedation allows you to remain fully unconscious during the procedure so that you have no memory of the surgery when you wake up.


As with a breast reduction, Dr. Hermann will use the short scar technique as opposed to the traditional angle pattern to minimize scarring.


Dr. Hermann will carefully lift and reshape your breast tissue, and trim excess skin. The nipple will be positioned higher on the breast to create a perky, youthful breast contour. If needed, the areolas can be reduced, as well. 


Dr. Hermann will close the incisions with barbed sutures and the DERMABOND® PRINEO® Skin Closure System to keep the incisions tight and prevent scarring. We also provide a compression garment to minimize swelling and inflammation.


Dr. Hermann will carefully monitor your recovery over the course of the next few weeks to ensure you are healing properly. During this time, it is imperative to watch for any signs of infection. If you develop a fever, chills, excessive bleeding, intense pain, or excessive swelling, call our offices immediately.

FAQs about Breast Lift Surgery

How long does a breast lift take?

The length of your procedure will depend on the extent of refinement, whether you are receiving implants, and whether it is combined with a breast augmentation or mommy makeover. In most cases, the procedure generally takes about two to three hours.

How long does recovery from a breast lift take? 

Each patient responds to surgery differently, but in most cases, you can return to work and daily activity in about three weeks. Although you will notice a beautifully contoured bust line once the procedure is complete, you can expect a full recovery and desired results in about three months.

Should I get a breast reduction or a breast lift?

Both a breast reduction and breast lift can help patients address excess breast tissue and sagging. During your consultation at our Denton, TX, practice, our plastic surgeon will review your goals and help you choose which procedure is right for you. 

How much does a breast lift cost?

The cost of a breast lift varies from patient to patient. However, we offer very affordable prices compared to competitors. Additionally, if your breast lift is considered medically necessary, it may be partly covered by insurance. We also accept all major credit cards and financing through CareCredit® to help patients manage out-of-pocket costs.
