Breast Lifts Up 70% Since 2000 Catching Up to Breast Implants

In a recent study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), statistics have shown a dramatic rise in the number of mastopexy, or breast lift, procedures. In fact, since the year 2000, the number of breast lifts has since grown 70%, almost surpassing the number of breast implant procedures. Is this a growing trend in breast enhancement operations?

Bigger Is Not Always the Goal

When you hear the words 'breast augmentation' you probably automatically think of the purpose of the procedure will be to enlarge the breast. While this is true many times, it is not always the case. Even though this procedure involves implants, they are not necessarily going to increase the size of the breast. If the patient is happy with the size she had prior, a plastic surgeon will respect the patient’s wish and guide the surgery accordingly.
