New research shows more women are choosing to have breast lift surgery to get their body back after childbirth. Doctors use a woman's own tissue and skin to tighten the breast giving it a more youthful appearance.

There's been a 70% increase in breast lifts in the past 14 years according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Data shows more than 90,000 breast lifts were performed last year. Most of the procedures were in women ages 30 to 54.

Breast implants are still the most common plastic surgery for women. The average cost of breast implant surgery is $3,500, while the average cost of breast lift surgery is about $8,000 more.
