Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most sought after cosmetic surgery procedures. As the demand for plastic surgery procedures increases 5%-10% or more, breast augmentation is always at the top of the list. What is it about this operation that makes it so popular?
The reasons women seek out breast augmentation procedures have been discussed in this blog in the past. Seeking a larger size, restoring breasts that have lost volume due to pregnancy or age, and the desire to improve self-esteem are still major contributing factors to the breast augmentation boom, but as the techniques and tools improve there are several other factors that contribute to this procedure’s popularity.
- SAFETY: With any cosmetic procedure safety is the key. Because breast augmentation is so popular, surgeons and medical scientists devote a significant amount of time studying ways to improve both the techniques involved in the procedure and the tools used to create a natural looking breast. With advances in medical techniques breast augmentation surgery is safer than it has ever been. This has allowed women who may have been hesitant in the past to feel good about moving forward with their breast augmentation procedure.
- RETURN OF SILICONE: Since the FDA has approved silicone implants for use once again, women are feeling more comfortable with their surgical outcomes. Silicone is widely considered the most natural looking and feeling of the implant choices, and with the advent of new forms of silicone implants such as the “gummy bear” implants, women are more confident in the results they will get from a breast augmentation procedure.
- INDIVIDUALIZED RESULTS: As techniques improve, plastic surgeons are better able to customize breast augmentation surgery more specifically to the goals of each patient. With the addition of VECTRA 3D technology, women are able to see what the results of a breast augmentation procedure will look like prior to having the surgery. By taking more of the guess-work out of the result, women are more confident than ever that they will have the body they have been seeking from a breast augmentation procedure.
