Breast cosmetic surgery has been popular for decades, but what was once a surgery used to solely increase the size of the breast is now a broad range of treatments that can be adapted to an individual’s needs. More and more women want subtle breast lifts, as opposed to an increase in size.

So, we’re looking into the rise of the natural breast lift trend. We’ll be exploring how breast surgery trends come and go and what has brought in this new wave of subtle breast lifts. If you have a specific cosmetic goal in mind, such as a natural-looking breast lift, then going to a reputable cosmetic clinic such as ourselves is essential. We will listen to your needs during your discreet consultation and provide you with your options and how we can help you get the body you’ve been dreaming of.


The History of Breast Lifts

Interestingly, many would believe that breast surgery was a modern practice, but it actually dates back to the late 1800s. To begin with, surgeons used a range of materials for breast augmentation, including sponges, plastic, and liquids. It wasn’t until 1962 that the first augmentation using silicone implants was completed.

Since then, there have been considerable developments in cosmetic breast surgery technology, and we have been thrilled to be part of the innovation that has come with time. Now, we offer a range of breast surgeries, including our breast uplift surgery in Jersey and Guernsey, as well as breast augmentation and breast reduction. It is no longer about increasing the breast size but instead analysing the client’s needs and understanding how to make them more comfortable and confident in their own skin and what must be done to achieve that.

Why Do Breast Lift Trends Come and Go?

When cosmetic surgery initially became popular, the most common breast surgery was augmentation, which involves using implants to enlarge the size of the breast. This was during the 1960s when sex symbols such as Marilyn Monroe and Jayne Mansfield were in the spotlight. Alongside these bustier women on the silver screen, this was also when Playboy magazine was becoming increasingly popular, and models with larger breasts were plastered on the cover. So, it comes as no surprise that women began to long to move up a cup size or two.

Similarly, when supermodels started to become celebrities in their own right during the late 1980s and early 1990s, it was to be expected that interest in breast augmentation dropped as more people desired the slim and slinky frame of the models.

Now, more celebrities than ever before are opting for natural-looking surgeries rather than body transformations. Some celebrities prefer the natural look as it helps enhance their already beautiful features, which is precisely why more people are choosing a breast uplift instead of implants.


Natural Breast Lifts

Here at Aesthetic Skin Clinic, we offer breast uplift surgery in Guernsey and Jersey. Our award-winning surgeons are experts in their field, meaning that natural-looking results are guaranteed if that is what you’re looking for.

The surgery itself involves the removal of excess and sagging skin, tightening the breast tissue before repositioning the areola. This doesn’t create a fuller breast but instead lifts the existing breast tissue to make a new, uplifted, youthful, and firmer shape. It is designed to reshape and raise breasts on its own but can be performed alongside augmentation or reduction if an alteration of size is what you require.

Who Would Benefit from a Natural Breast Lift?

We have had many women come into our clinic interested in a breast lift for a long list of reasons. This surgery is suitable for anyone looking for an uplifted, more youthful-looking breast, so somebody who feels as though they have excess skin or sagging. This is most common in women who have been pregnant or who have lost a considerable amount of weight. Additionally, skin sagging comes naturally with age, so we have also treated women who have wanted to reduce the appearance of ageing.

A breast uplift is often favoured in these circumstances because it provides some of the most natural-looking results. Usually, clients are looking for the shape and firmness they had before pregnancy or in their younger years, not for a complete body transformation.

As mentioned, breast uplift surgery can be performed in conjunction with other surgeries such as breast augmentation, so if you’re looking for a larger and lifted shape. If you’re unsure of what you need but feel you would benefit from a natural-looking breast lift, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our medically trained team, who will help guide you in the right direction during your consultation.
