Try to think of a one-hour experience that has been shown to change your life for the better. What comes to mind? Recent studies have shown that breast augmentation surgery, which takes one to two hours on average, can give women a new shape they love and a confidence boost that can’t be measured.
In a study reported in the medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), 225 women were interviewed at least one month after their procedure. A full 98% of the women reported that their breast augmentation results met or exceeded their expectations! Over half of patients interviewed rated their results a perfect 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. Satisfaction levels this high confirm that breast augmentation surgery is an effective procedure that patients can approach with confidence and excitement.
The same study also reported some psychological benefits that plastic surgeons have noted anecdotally for many years. Over 90% of the women experienced increased self-esteem after surgery. Additionally, 64% of patients interviewed reported an increased quality of life, making it clear that when a woman experiences high satisfaction with breast augmentation, it impacts more than just her physique.
Women choose breast augmentation surgery for a variety of reasons. Some have always felt that their breasts are just too small, while others would like to restore volume lost after childbearing. Some women wish to correct asymmetry that has existed since puberty. Regardless of what brings a woman to surgery, it seems to follow that feeling confident with the appearance of her breasts frees a woman to feel more confident in general.
According to the ASPS, breast augmentation was the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure in the United States in 2012. In addition to the relatively short duration of the surgery itself, recovery is fairly quick and easy. Most women are able to return to work within a few days, depending on how strenuous the job is. While swelling may take several weeks to go down completely, results from surgery are almost immediately appreciable, much to the patient’s delight.
With such high patient satisfaction reports, and the additional benefit of increased self-esteem, you may want to think seriously about breast enhancement if you’re insecure about your breast size or shape. Given that you can have a quick recovery from breast augmentation, there’s no need to spend another summer dissatisfied with your appearance in a bathing suit. Come in to speak with Dr. Zevon today!
