Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts. More than 400,000 women chose to undergo breast augmentation in 2007, making it the second most popular cosmetic procedure in the United States after liposuction. There are many reasons a woman may pursue breast augmentation:
- She may feel that her breasts are too small for her body
- She may feel that her upper body is out of proportion to her lower body
- She may have breasts that differ in size and/or shape
- She may wish to restore breast volume lost as a result of pregnancy, breast feeding or weight loss
Breast augmentation is among the plastic surgery procedures with the highest patient satisfaction ratings. Many women experience an immediate improvement in their self-esteem and discover a greater self-confidence. In a recent study, 90% of breast augmentation patients responded that they undertook the procedure to improve the way they feel about themselves, and respondents overwhelmingly cited themselves as the primary motivator in their decision to have breast augmentation surgery (94%). In addition, many women find greater access to different clothing styles and fashions following breast augmentation.
