Between 2000 and 2014, the number of breast lift surgeries performed on a yearly basis increased by 70 percent. Statistical data gathered by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons shows that, in this same time, breast augmentation has grown by a comparatively modest 37 percent.
While it is certain that the popularity of breast lift surgery has increased – particularly among women between the ages of 30 and 54 – breast augmentation is far from seeing a decline. In 2013 alone there were over 290,000 breast augmentation surgeries performed, keeping the procedure in the top ten of the most popular plastic surgery options in the United States.
Understanding Your Options
Both breast lift and breast augmentation can help improve the appearance, symmetry, and profile of the chest, though neither one is ideal for each and every woman. Depending on your unique anatomy and personal desires, Board-certified South Carolina breast surgeon Dr. Ted Vaughn may recommend augmentation, lift, or a combination of the two. Which techniques are ideally suited to enhance your frame can be discussed in more detail during your plastic surgery consultation at our Greenwood office.
