The latest breast augmentation surgery statistics in the US indicate that the number of women that are undergoing this procedure is on the rise. Since 2000, the number of women that are visiting plastic surgeons to get breast lifts and breast implant surgeries has increased tremendously. Breast plants are the most preferred by most women, but the number of those that are getting breast lifts is also increasing every new day. American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reported to have done more than 90,000 breast lift procedures in 2013 alone. Most of the women prefer getting the breast augmentation procedure using the tissue they already have.

According to the breast augmentation surgery statistics in the US as per the year 2013, most of the women that undergo this procedure are aged approximately between 30 and 50 years. Most of these women are those that have had children, those that have experienced considerable sagging or those whose breast volume has decreased. According to ASPS, most of these women are able to successfully undergo procedures that help them to get rid of excess skin so that they can have smaller breasts or lift their breasts so that they can be larger.

For you to be an ideal candidate for breast augmentation Houston if you do not want implants, you will need to have a good amount of breast tissue left. According to ASPS, a lot of women that would like to undergo this procedure usually do not know if they are ideal candidates, but a simple pencil test is done to help them determine if they are. You can perform this test from the comfort of your home. All you are required to do is place a pencil under your breasts. If the breast tissue is able to hold the pencil against the chest, it shows that there is a hanging skin that can be used to perform the augmentation.
