Breast Lift Procedures on the Rise Worldwide

Sharing is caring!

Breast lift surgery is a popular cosmetic surgical procedure that helps women restore their youthful curves. The procedure addresses saggy breasts and results in an attractive bust line. In 2015, the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) issued an invitation to 35,000 plastic surgeons worldwide to participate in a survey to analyze cosmetic surgery trends. According to the results of the international survey the demand for breast lift surgery procedures is on the rise. The statistics show that there is an increasing interest in the procedure in the US.

How Breast Lift Surgery Helps

The procedure involves removing excess, sagging skin, reshaping and tightening the breast tissue, raising the nipple and areola into a more forward position, reducing stretched, and large areole and makes wide breasts narrower or slightly smaller. It is performed using different types of incisions such as incision around the areola, below the breast crease, and in the underarm. It effectively resolves sagging, tuberous breasts, asymmetrical breasts, and nipples pointing downward, and provides a firmer and perkier appearance. Results are immediately visible, improve over a few months, and last long.
