Breast Lift Surgeries Growing at Twice the Rate of Implants (1 of 3)

Caption: Kim Beckman, of Casstown, Ohio, recently lost 75 pounds and says she still didn't have the body she wanted. After consulting with her plastic surgeon, Beckman got a breast lift using the tissue she already had, then used implants to supplement what she didn't. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast lifts are an increasingly popular option, particularly with women over 40, growing at twice the rate of implants since 2000.
