Ever wonder how many breast implant surgeries are performed in the U.S. each year? Breast augmentation, or mammaplasty, is the country’s number one cosmetic surgery according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). Nearly 320,000 women opted for breast enhancement last year – and with numerous post-opt studies citing high satisfaction rates, it’s no wonder why.
Whether you choose saline or silicone breast implants, the outcome isn’t limited to physical appearances. Women report a boost in self confidence, increased sexual arousal and overall happiness with their newly enhanced bosoms. Sizing up from a 32-A to a 36-C isn’t just about bigger, rounder breasts, though patients love their newfound sense of femininity! Some want to address lost volume after pregnancy or to correct mild to severe asymmetry in cup sizes.
