Breast augmentation remains one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries for women worldwide. The procedure, which is generally thought of as primarily concerning appearances alone, can provide women with a breast volume that matches more closely with their goal appearance, even out asymmetrical breasts and assist in improving breast shape.
Research on breast augmentation frequently finds that the results can go beyond the cosmetic, helping women to with emotional and psychological dissatisfactions. Here are three reasons breast augmentation results can surpass the superficial.
1. Psychological Benefits
Women who pursue breast augmentation often feel self-conscious about the size of their breasts. This can cause them to have low self-esteem or to lack self-confidence. Following breast augmentation, many women feel more confident and comfortable with their bodies, which can wide-reaching effects on their personal, professional and social lives.
2. Better Sex Life
Studies have shown that many women with breast augmentation experience an increase in the quality of their sex lives following their surgery. Since many of my patients report feeling more attractive, sexier and happier with their bodies after breast augmentation, it makes sense that a better sex life might follow.
3. Improved Overall Quality of Life
With increased confidence, an improved body image and even a higher quality sex life, many breast augmentation patients find that their overall quality of life is better after surgery than it was before. Women with breast implants frequently are able to adopt a more positive outlook on life and move forward from their surgery with more self-assurance and higher morale.
