If you watched last night’s Academy Awards, you know exactly who won for best supporting actress—Octavia Spencer, the actress behind the outspoken “Minny Jackson” character in 2011’s, The Help. Known for her comedic timing, the Alabama native is making headlines today for something other than her acting—her plans to undergo cosmetic surgery.
In the week leading up to the Oscars, Spencer sat down with celebrity news magazine, Parade. Among topics discussed was the actress’ plan to undergo plastic surgery. When the magazine asked about giving herself a “splurge gift,” Spencer responded, “Well, I am going to get my boobs lifted. That’s going to be my first gift. I’m going to do that.” Breast lifts are one of the most popular cosmetic breast surgeries in the US, second only to breast augmentation. Spencer went on to say that she was planning to undergo the surgery in November. Until then, she will be out of the country, shooting for a new Diablo Cody film.
Breast Surgeries On the Rise
Each year, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) releases statistics on cosmetic procedures performed in the US. The 2011 data has just been published, and overall, Cosmetic Breast Surgery is on the rise. Here are some of the cosmetic breast procedures women are turning to every day:
- Breast lift: Breast Lift Surgery is performed to return a youthful shape and lift to breasts that have sagged as a result of weight loss, pregnancy or simply the effects of aging and gravity. The procedure can also reduce areola size, and it can be combined with breast reduction or augmentation for added firmness or volume.
- Breast augmentation: For women with small or unevenly-sized breasts, Breast Augmentation Surgery is often an ideal solution. Through the placement of breast implants, we can achieve a fuller, firmer, better-proportioned look. According to the most recent ASPS data, breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery in the US, with over 300,000 procedures performed in 2011 alone.
- Breast reduction: Large breasts can cause pain, improper posture and low self-esteem. Breast Reduction Surgery can often combat these issues. Performed under general anesthesia, this procedure removes fat and glandular tissue and tightens skin to produce smaller, lighter breasts that are more in proportion to the rest of the body.
