Breast implant surgery is up around 37%; breast lift is up 70%
As cosmetic surgery becomes more mainstream women are becoming more aware of the variety of choices they have.
Overall breast implant surgery is the most popular form of cosmetic surgery for women. However, according to research since 2000 the number of breast lifts is up 70%, while the number of breast implant surgeries is only up around 37%.
When it comes to breast implant surgery though, 37% represents quite a lot; whereas the low number of breast lifts in 2000 would allow the percentage to rise quite high. To put it in numbers:
There were fewer than 53,000 breast lifts in 2000 and last year there were over 90,006. Last year for breast implants there were over 300,100.
Big Bang Theory star Kaley Cuoco said “breast implants were the greatest decision of my life.”
Today’s cosmetic surgery can provide natural looking results, so it can—sometimes—be hard to tell if a person has had work done. Occasionally, there are slideshows on magazine sites comparing celebrities with natural and fake breasts: more often than not, without a before and after photo you could never tell.
The female star of The Big Bang Theory said she did not regret getting breast implants 10 years ago and said it was the best decision she has ever made.
For some women, getting breast implant surgery has been about improving the way they look because, for them, this impacts how they feel about their body. This surgery is a personal choice and should revolve around what you want.

While breast implant surgery is still the most popular treatment, more and more women are going for breast lifts. Especially—according to new research— women between 35-50, which account for 75% of breast lifts.
A large number of these women are mums who aren’t going to have children anymore, and who want to restore their pre-baby body. Generally though, mums who have decided they won’t be having children may also opt for liposuction and a tummy tuck to restore their pre-baby physique.
This combination of treatments is most commonly known as a mummy makeover and is a fairly popular idea.
