Researchers in Britain have gathered data revealing the reasons breast augmentation is so popular. The outcome of the study isn’t a surprise, but it’s worth mentioning because it provides more evidence as to why the number of women seeking breast implants is rising all over the world.

While the study included participants who wanted breast implants because they were getting older, had a baby, or had lost a great deal of weight, there was one commonality: They all wanted to increase their self-confidence.

This is one of the many studies that have been conducted looking at the reasons women want to augment their breasts. A study published in Plastic Reconstruction Surgery in 2003, for example, also found that many women that had sought out breast augmentation had experienced greater emotional distress before surgery as compared with those who decided not to pursue it.

Many people wonder if breast augmentation really does increase a woman’s confidence levels. According to an article published in August 2012 by the Mayo Clinic, breast augmentation does, in fact, help with confidence and self-image.

Additionally, in an online survey conducted by, 61 percent reported they had more sex after receiving their implants. About 70 percent of those women also said their satisfaction improved significantly. Researchers believe this has to do with women feeling much better about the way they look when naked. In the words of reality and talk show star Bethenny Frankel (after receiving implants), “I feel a little hotter.”

Ready to Find Out If Breast Augmentation Is Right for You?

If you’ve been contemplating whether breast implants are a good option for your body, why not learn more with a free consultation? The more you know about the procedure and the expected results, the more you’ll know whether it is right for you.

There are two types of breast implants to choose from: silicone and saline. You can also select a natural breast augmentation. This is a procedure in which a plastic surgeon removed fat via liposuction from another part of the body such as the abdominal area, thighs, or butt and then sends it to a FDA approved laboratory for processing.

Once processed, the fat is injected into the breasts over a series of injections scheduled several months apart to naturally fill your breasts with your own fat.
