Breast Lifts Are Increasing in Popularity

Breast lift surgery is the ideal procedure for women who want to improve breast sagging (ptosis) and achieve more youthful breasts. Although breast augmentation remains among the top plastic surgery procedures, the number of breast lift procedures being performed is significantly increasing. In fact, according to 2013 statistics from The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), the number of breast lift procedures has increased by about 590 percent since 1997 compared to a significantly smaller 210 percent increase in the number of breast augmentation procedures since 1997. In addition, the number of breast augmentation procedures has actually decreased since 2012 while the number of breast lift procedures has continued to increase.

Breast Lift Surgery Can Improve the Following:

  • Breast shape
  • Breast position on the chest
  • Breast firmness
  • Nipple and areola position
  • Overall breast appearance

Possible Reasons for the Increase in Breast Lifts

This increase in breast lift procedures cannot be attributed to one reason, but there are several potential explanations, including:

  • A green traffic sign with an up arrow and "COSMETIC SURGERY" below itThe increased safety of breast lift surgery
  • The increasing awareness of the benefits of breast lift surgery
  • The increase of breast lift surgery being combined with breast augmentation surgery (breast lift surgery often results in a reduction of one bra cup size)
  • The increase in Mommy Makeover procedures

Combining Procedures

One of the main reasons for the popularity of breast lift surgery in recent years is likely that patients are combining procedures more often. Rather than undergoing separate procedures or choosing just the one they desire most and not having the other(s), patients are learning that they can combine two or more surgeries into one procedure. These often include breast lift and augmentation to increase the size and improve the shape of the breasts, as well as tummy tuck surgery and liposuction to help restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy body for the Mommy Makeover. This reduces the overall downtime needed compared to having the procedures performed separately, and the cost of the procedure is less because patients only have to pay the surgeon’s fee, anesthesia fee, and other fees once rather than for each surgery if they were performed separately.

Get the Body You Deserve With a Mommy Makeover

Would you accept a job that required you to work 24 hours a day, seven days a week without any pay, sick leave, or vacation time? It sounds crazy, but many women have chosen to take on this job, motherhood, wholeheartedly because the joy of having children is worth every sacrifice.

Stretch marks, deflated breasts, and sagging skin are all evidence that a miracle has taken place. Since so many mothers are looking to save time and money while juggling all their other duties, the Mommy Makeover procedure was created.

The Mommy Makeover is a customized procedure that combines certain cosmetic procedures that can help restore a woman’s pre-pregnancy body. With a few procedures performed at one time, the patient saves time in recovery as well as money spent on separate procedures.

Any combination of liposuction, abdominoplasty (tummy tuck), breast lift, and breast augmentation can be included in the Mommy Makeover.


Dr. Rodriguez-Sierra often combines liposuction with tummy tuck surgery in a procedure called lipoabdominoplasty. A tummy tuck alone will address excess skin in the abdomen, but it will not remove fat like liposuction can. Conversely, liposuction cannot remove excess skin, tighten the abdominal muscles, or remove stretch marks. Combining these two procedures provides the ultimate results.

Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift

After pregnancy and breastfeeding, the breasts usually change to some degree. Most women want to replace the lost volume they experienced by getting a breast augmentation, but they do not know that this procedure will not remove any excess skin or lift the breasts to a more youthful position. By combining a breast augmentation and a breast lift, the patient can experience larger, more youthful breasts.

With all the hours you’ve put in as a mother, you deserve to cash in on a total body transformation. If you are interested in the Mommy Makeover or any body contouring procedure, please schedule a consultation Dr. Rodriguez-Sierra by calling (888) 478-4690 or filling out our online contact form today.

Why Summer Is the Perfect Season for a Tummy Tuck

woman on beach in bikiniWith the summer season in full swing, you’ve probably either gone swimsuit shopping or pulled out your old bathing suit to enjoy some time in the pool. Relaxed and comfortable are two words that should describe you, but if you’re like most women, putting on a bathing suit does not bring those words to mind. Many women are frustrated with sagging skin on their abdomen from pregnancy or weight loss, and any excess fat in that area seems impossible to remove with diet and exercise alone. Even stretch marks will not go away with the most expensive products.

Dr. Rodriguez Sierra performs the tummy tuck (“abdominoplasty”) to help remedy all of these swimsuit season insecurities. After only one to two weeks of recovery time, you can experience true relaxation and comfort with your new slender, sculpted midsection.

Is Tummy Tuck Surgery Right for Me?

To create the ideal result, Dr. Rodriguez-Sierra will first address the abdominal muscles. Many times these muscles are stretched due to pregnancy or weight gain, causing the abdomen to protrude unnaturally even when there is not a significant amount of fat present. Once the muscles are tightened, any excess fat in the upper or lower abdomen is removed with liposuction. The skin is then redraped over the new abdominal contours to provide the most natural-looking, feminine result. If stretch marks are located on the skin that is removed, they will also be permanently eliminated.

If you do not need a full abdominoplasty, Dr. Rodriguez-Sierra can perform a mini tummy-tuck, which addresses fat, excess skin, and stretch marks in the lower abdomen only. Both procedures will result in a scar that can be easily hidden beneath most styles of swimsuit bottoms. Although there will be a scar near your bikini line, it will fade significantly over time and will be a small trade-off for the beautifully sculpted body you will achieve with this procedure.

Many women choose to combine a tummy tuck with other procedures, such as a breast augmentation, breast lift, or liposuction on the thighs or buttocks for a total body transformation. Many surgeons refer to these combined procedures as a “Mommy Makeover” because they address the areas of the body that pregnancy so often changes.
