Breast implants are one of the most popular forms of cosmetic surgery available in many areas of the world, with many women choosing breast implants to help with their personal body image issues. Once a woman makes the decision to undergo a procedure to add breast implants they often see, not only a change in their body, but a change in their overall psychological health and self esteem. Surgeons and those who have gone under the knife to install implants report a huge change in the confidence levels of a patient after they achieve a body image closer to the perfect option in their mind.
Breast implants are used to change the shape and size of a woman’s breasts to either restore them to how they looked at a younger age or before children, or to create the aesthetic look a woman believes is the perfect shape for her body. One of the major reasons women undergo breast implant surgery is to restore drooping or sagging breasts to a firmer appearance that appears to defy the problems caused by age.
Unhappiness with the body can be a major issue for many women who can be affected by problems with their confidence and self esteem. Breast size and shape can make it difficult for some women to take part in the activities of life many people take for granted. A major area of change reported by many breast implant surgeons and patients is the positive body image many women appear to obtain when they have completed the breast implant procedure. A 2012 survey reported those who had undergone breast implant surgery saw an overall increase in their confidence levels and an increase in their sex life. 61 percent of women reported their sex lives had been improved in frequency, with 34 percent claiming their satisfaction levels had also been increased.
Surveys such as this lend weight to the overall changes in personality and confidence levels that are often linked to breast implants and cosmetic surgery. Improving the body image of the individual patient can have a large increase in the way they are viewed by both themselves and their partners to add to the major changes an individual sees in themselves after breast implant surgery.
