Procedures that lift and remove excess, sagging skin are on the rise across the US, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons:
- Breast lifts have increased 89 percent since the year 2000
- Butt lifts have increased 252 percent since the year 2000
- Lower body lifts have increased 3,973 percent since the year 2000
- Upper arms lifts have increased 4,959 percent since the year 2000
Obviously surgical techniques have come a long way since 15 years ago, which may be the main reason these procedures are surging. Today's plastic surgeons perform lifting procedures that are safer and more effective than ever before.
Perhaps weight loss and healthy lifestyles are another contributing factor. The contouring procedures listed above often benefit people who have undergone significant weight loss, and who are left with hanging, deflated skin as a result.
Whatever the reason for the increased rates in the last 15 years, it's clear that more Americans are opting for procedures that allow them to feel more confident. Your feelings about your body are important, and a cosmetic procedure is sometimes the right way to start looking and feeling great.
