ASAPS 2015 Annual Report – Breast Lifts rose by 649% since 1997

Breast lift is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures for women today. In an established NYC plastic surgery practice, women can expect customized procedures to address sagging or droopy breasts and achieve an attractive bust line. The latest annual statistics report from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) reveals that the popularity of the procedure has soared over the years. According to the report, demand for the procedure has grown by an astounding649% since 1997 when ASAPS initiated its survey. The data also shows that breast lifts rose by 16% from 2014.

According to the report, the procedure is the fifth most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the country, with a total of 148,967 performed in 2015. Interestingly, the procedure replaced Rhinoplasty as the fifth most popular surgical procedure in 2015. Women in the age group of 35 to 50 had the most number of breast lift procedures in 2015 in the country. It accounted for more than half (50.6%) of the total with 75,425 treatments.

The appearance of the breasts gets affected by factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging, genetics or rapid weight loss. A good surgeon would be able to perform the procedure to restore a more youthful-looking and attractive bust line. The procedure can raise and reshape sagging breasts, restore the contour of the breast and correct asymmetry. The treatment involves getting rid of the excess or stretched skin and repositioning the nipples to a higher and better position. Established plastic surgery practices use advanced Mastopexy techniques such as ‘anchor’ or ‘inverted-T’ mastopexy, and vertical breast lift to help patients achieve the results they desire. The surgeon would choose the incision pattern depending on the enhancement required and breast anatomy.

Having your breast lift performed by an experienced surgeon in NYC is important to achieve optimal results – a firm, attractive and more youthful bust line. Women who lack volume may be advised a combination procedure of a breast lift along with breast augmentation to improve the outcome.
