Do you want to restore firmer breasts that don't sag and droop? If so, you may be a good candidate for a breast lift (mastopexy), a procedure which has experienced substantial grown in popularity since 2000.
According to recently released statistics from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast lifts rose 70 percent between 2000 and 2013. In 2000, ASPS member surgeons performed nearly 53,000 breast lifts, and in 2013, they performed over 90,000.
Breast lifts tend to appeal to women who have lost breast fullness and shape as a result of:
- Weight loss
In 2013, women between the ages of 30 and 54 made up about 70 percent of the total number of breast lift patients. As a woman between those ages, you may have noticed changes to your breast shape and fullness. Your breasts and nipples may have begun to sag downward and take on more of a flattened, elongated appearance. The areolas may have become enlarged and the nipples may point downward. For some women, these changes lower their confidence in their bodies. To restore a more youthful breast appearance, you may be interested in breast lift surgery, which removes excess sagging skin, and tightens and reshapes the breast skin and tissue.
Although breast lift rates have risen substantially, breast augmentation remains the most popular plastic surgery procedure among women, with more than 290,000 performed by ASPS member surgeons last year.
