First off, breast augmentation surgery has continued to grow in popularity. Around 100,000 procedures per year were performed in 2005, but today that number stands at more than 300,000 per year. But it’s not only a matter of popularity – it’s that breast augmentation has also gotten better. It’s been the most frequently performed plastic surgery procedure for the last 7 years, and is a lock to repeat again this year.

If breast augmentation procedure has continued to improve, there must be key reasons why. Let’s take a look at 5 key factors that are keeping it on top.

I. Lasting Results

Regardless of whether you want silicone or saline implants, the question of durability is tremendously important. Women who get breast augmentation surgery are getting lasting results with no maintenance visits required.

II. An Ideal, Personalized Fit

As a woman looking to attain breasts that are perfect for you personally, it’s of huge benefit to have multiple options to choose from. For instance, women whose breasts sag or droop can choose to get a breast lift procedure (with or without implants). Meanwhile, women with fat to spare on other parts of their body can select breast augmentation with fat grafting, which is a highly customizable combination where the surgeon removes fat from elsewhere on your body and transfers it to your breasts via injection.

III. Word of Mouth

Women who have their breasts augmented procedure are enjoying the results – and they’re telling their friends. Recently, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons published a study showing that a whopping 98% of breast augmentation patients are satisfied with the results. Women are looking good, feeling good, and encouraging other women to join them.

IV. Peace of Mind

Today’s breast implants come with a reputation of safety. The FDA has studied breast augmentation at length, and have given the procedure a high safety ranking – as well as the approval they’ve given to the newest silicone gel implants.

V. The Value of Speed

After the procedure, most women are able to return to work and light activity within a few days! Subsequently, greater levels of exercise and activity are possible just a few weeks later.
