Each year, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) releases data on current plastic surgery trends as well as the top cosmetic procedures patients are choosing. The report also looks at how procedures grow in popularity from year to year. Recently, the ASPS released their latest data, and many procedures saw incredible growth over the last decade. Breast Lift Surgery was no exception.
According to the ASPS report, there were over 90,000 breast lift procedures performed in 2011, alone. Compare that to the 2000 figure, and we see a remarkable 72% growth. So, why do so many women choose a breast lift every year? The answer is simple. It works!
Breasts can sag and droop for several reasons — following weight loss, as a result of breastfeeding or simply as a normal part of the aging process. Thankfully, breast lift surgery can often be of help. A breast lift, also known as “mastopexy,” is a procedure aimed at lifting and reshaping the breasts. By trimming excess skin and tightening supporting tissue, we can often achieve an uplifted, more youthful bustline. But, since a breast lift does not change the size of the breast, many women choose to combine it with a breast augmentation procedure. Read on to learn more.

Thankfully, Breast Augmentation Surgery is often the answer. During the procedure, we use a silicone or saline implant to increase breast fullness and proportion. As the number-one cosmetic surgery in the US, ask yourself this: Is it time for me to explore breast enhancement?
