Breast augmentation has gone up from around 100,000 procedures per year in 2005 to averaging around 300,000 since 2006. It’s been the number one plastic surgery procedure for the last 7 years, and is almost certain to repeat again this year.
Let’s take a look at 5 key factors that keep breast procedures like breast augmentation and breast lifts on top of the list of most popular plastic surgery procedures.
I. Results that Last
Durability is a hugely important component of both silicone and saline breast implants. Women who undergo breast augmentation are getting results that last decades – and without requiring maintenance.
II. Variety + Customization = A Personalized Result
There are several different options for women to choose from in order to achieve the breasts that she desires. For instance, women whose breasts sag or droop can choose to get a breast lift with implants, which is a highly customizable combination that involves a high degree of artistry on the surgeon’s part.
III. Word of Mouth
Women who have their breasts augmented are enjoying the results – and they’re telling their friends. Recently, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons published a study that indicates a whopping 98% satisfaction rate with breast augmentation. Women are looking good, feeling good, and encouraging other women to join them.
IV. A Reputation of Safety Leads to Peace of Mind
The FDA has studied breast augmentation extensively, and the high safety ranking they’ve given to the procedure – as well as the approval they’ve given to the newest silicone gel implants – have evidently been quite comforting to women considering the procedure.
V. The Value of Speed
The consultation with your plastic surgeon is vitally important, and a conscientious, quality surgeon like Dr. Romano is going to insist on an in-depth conversation where all options are considered.
But after the surgery, most women are able to return to work and light activity within a few days, with greater levels of exercise and activity possible just a few weeks later.
