We've long known that breast augmentation surgery can enhance a woman's appearance and self-esteem. But, can it actually improve someone's quality of life. Yes, says a new study published in the July issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery® from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS). In a recent press release, the Society explains that “Women undergoing breast augmentation surgery report substantial improvement in several key areas of quality of life…”
Researchers developed a questionnaire that measured six areas of quality of life: “satisfaction with breasts and with overall outcome, psychosocial, sexual, and physical well-being, and satisfaction with care.” Amongst the 41 women who completed the questionnaire, researchers found significant improvement in three important areas. These were satisfaction with breasts, psychosocial well-being and sexual well-being. As the number-one cosmetic surgery in the US, it's encouraging to know that breast augmentation can have such profound and far-reaching benefits to women.
Want to find out what breast augmentation is all about? Read on.
Women choose breast augmentation for all sorts of reasons – to compensate for small breasts, to balance a disproportionate chest or to correct the appearance of a congenital defect. No matter what your motivation, the procedure is essentially the same.
During the surgery, a saline or silicone implant is placed behind breast tissue or the chest wall muscle. Performed under general anesthesia, the procedure can significantly increase a woman's breast size, fullness and proportion. As the number-one cosmetic surgery in the US, according to the ASPS, there were over 307,000 breast augmentation procedures performed in 2011, alone.
