Breast Augmentation Statistics: An ASAPS Infographic
- Posted on: Aug 7 2012
A week ago on July 30, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) posted on their webpage a summary of some of the statistics related to breast procedures.
Before the high tech solutions of today, women would use a variety of materials to augment their chests. Today, 31 percent of women use saline implants and 69 percent opt for silicone implants.
Breast Augmentation Demographics
Many women reported that their decision to have a breast procedure was motivated by a desire to look better naked, look better in their clothing, simply wanting larger breasts, the desire to feel more confident, feel better about themselves, or wanting to reduce their self-consciousness.
While the reasons a woman chooses to have breast augmentation surgery varies from individual to individual, the average woman who undergoes the procedure is a married, mid-30s, with some post secondary education, and chooses a C cup implant size. The number of operations of this kind have risen by 213 percent in the last 14 years from 101,176 to 316,848 surgeries per year.
Satisfaction With the Procedures
If you have ever wondered about patient satisfaction after breast augmentation, consider these statistics: 92 percent would recommend the procedure, 94 percent are happy about their decision, 82 percent said their self-confidence improved, 61 percent reported having sex more frequently, and 70 percent said their sex life is more satisfying after their operation.
