Boob Jobs By The Number: How Many Are Really Real?

Thinking of undergoing a breast augmentation procedure this year? You’re not alone. In fact, breast implant surgery is currently the most commonly performed cosmetic treatment in the United States. However, determining the exact number of American women with breast implants is complex for a number of reasons.

Because breast enhancement statistics have only been compiled annually since the late 1990s, it’s difficult to estimate how many women in the US currently have breast implants. In some cases, women seeking breast augmentation undergo fat transfer enhancement, which uses liposuction to move fat to the breasts from less desirable areas of the body, instead of traditional implants.

Additionally, many studies fail to take into account the fact that some breast augmentation procedures are actually revisions to correct the original, undesirable results of an earlier treatment. Overall, experts believe that approximately four percent of American women currently possess traditional breast implants.

Other Procedures on the Rise

While breast implants are still quite popular, new research suggests that other procedures may be growing at a faster rate. These days, women don’t just want to enhance the size of their breasts; they also want to create a more youthful overall appearance by lifting their breasts to a higher position. In fact, a study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons reveals that the breast lift surgery is increasing at twice the rate of breast implants with more than 90,000 lifts performed in 2013 alone.

Of course, not all women want to enhance their silhouettes. In fact, the number of breast reduction procedures is also on the rise for women in the United States. Since 1997, studies show that one woman has pursued breast reduction for every two who underwent augmentation. Additionally, thousands of men undergo breast reduction procedures each year to treat gynecomastia or enlarged breast tissue.

Another procedure experiencing unprecedented popularity growth in the last few years is buttock augmentation. Perhaps inspired by figures like Jennifer Lopez and Pippa Middleton, a large number of American women are going under the knife in search of higher, more pronounced derrières.

Make the Right Choice for You

While the tide may be shifting when it comes to certain types of cosmetic surgery, it’s important to pursue the procedure that will make you feel happiest and most confident in your body. Do your research to determine if breast augmentation truly is right for you.
