Barbra Streisand

Barbra Streisand is looking a bit droopy lately. It's nothing a breast lift (mastopexy) couldn't help. Unfortunately, breast lifts are not perfect surgeries since they create significant scars on the breast. The scars usually go around the areola, vertically down to the under-breast crease, and sometimes under the breast as well. The scars usually fade with time, but it can take 1-2 years.
Some patients get breast lifts with implants (augmentation mastopexy), but the implants are only necessary if the patient wants her breast to be larger.
I do believe that Star Jones and Carnie Wilson both had breast lifts with implants. I wouldn't recommend implants for Barbra. Her breasts are big enough!

I have to say, she would look 10x better if she'd just bothered to wear a bra.

Her breasts look normal for someone her age, so why should she get a breast lift? The no-bra, see-through shirt look though, not so normal for someone her age.

Nobody should have plastic surgery unless they specifically want it to look better. I always tell patients "Plastic surgery is never about 'need,' it's about 'want.'"
