Breast augmentation surgery can be a hot topic for debate. It seems to usually circulate around celebrities or other women made famous by extreme plastic surgery, but the reality is that breast enhancement is the most popular plastic surgery in America. Many ordinary women opt for breast implant surgery, so if you’re thinking about it here are some things you need to know about the benefits of breast augmentation.
One of the major benefits of breast augmentation is that there are different types of implants, so you can likely find an option that works well for your body and what you’re looking for in a breast implant. The least popular option is probably the saline breast implant; only about 30% of women choose this option. The other common type of breast implant is made of silicone gel. In the past 15 years since silicone breast implants have been available, the rate of breast implant surgeries has tripled. A type of silicone breast implant — which surgeons find to be superior — is what’s called the “gummy bear” implant, which was approved by the Food and Drug Administration after an 8 year clinical trial.
Some other benefits of breast augmentation include increased self-confidence, having the body you want and love, and a better sex life (women who were polled reported an almost 35% increase in satisfaction with their sex lives). If you’re interested in any of the above, investing in breast implants might be a good choice for you. You should consult with a board certified breast augmentation surgeon to see what might be right for you and your body.
