Why Breast Augmentation Has Not and Will Not Be Losing Its Top Spot Any Time Soon.
Can you imagine the same person winning Best Actress at the Emmy’s for seven years in a row? Probably not. It is rare that anything can ever be at the top that consistently, however, breast augmentation has been the number one plastic surgery procedure since 2006 and is likely to repeat for an 8th time this year. Here are five ways how breast augmentation has achieved such an impossible feat.
#1 The procedure’s reputation of safety provides women with the peace of mind when considering breast enhancement.
Breast augmentation has a long track record of safety, and extensive studies by the FDA are comforting and encouraging for women looking into the procedure. The implants have proven to be safe in case of a rupture and neither material has been linked to causing disease of surrounding tissue.
#2 The variety of implants and customization of the procedure allow women to achieve a more personalized result from their breast augmentation.
There are several different options for women to choose from in order to achieve the breasts that she desires. The new silicone gel implants that were just recently approved by the FDA are the newest type of implants on the market today and are already gaining quick popularity, even with celebrities like Angelina Jolie who chose these new tear-drop implants for her breast reconstruction a couple months ago. The Mentor MemoryShape implant is one of the more popular of these teardrop or gummy-bear implants.
#3 Women who have had a breast augmentation are encouraging other women with their excellent reviews.
A few months ago, the ASPS published a study showing a 98% rate of satisfaction for breast augmentation. 90% of the women surveyed also attributed their surgeries to an increase in their levels of self-esteem. In past years, breast augmentation has been linked to other benefits as well, such as an improved sex life.
#4 The results of a breast augmentation are made to last.
Breast implants are extremely durable and designed to last for a very long time. Women who have undergone a breast augmentation are experiencing results that have lasted for decades without requiring any regular maintenance or replacement as may be the case with some other procedures.
#5 Compared to other plastic surgery procedures, the surgery and recovery time are fairly quick.
On the day of your surgery, your surgeon can have you in and out the door in usually less than two hours. The majority of women are able to return to lighter activity and work within a few days of their surgery. Higher levels of activity and exercise are fully possible just a couple weeks after the breast augmentation.
