3 Ways That Breast Augmentation Could Increase Your Confidence

by | Feb 4, 2021 | Breast, Breast Augmentation

Did you know that many of today’s women are dissatisfied with their breast size? In a study published in the Body Image Journal researchers have concluded that over 70 percent of women were unhappy with their breast size, and 48 percent were both unhappy and willing to undergo breast augmentation surgery. These women were more likely to have lower levels of confidence and self-esteem. Furthermore, they would check their breasts less frequently and would be less able to detect changes such as lumps or size differences.

The correlation between breast size and self-esteem becomes obvious. However, what causes such a high number of unhappy women? In many cases, women are dealing with micromastia, or postpubertal underdevelopment of breast tissue. In other cases, women are dealing with other conditions such as sagging, asymmetrical, or deflated breasts due to pregnancy and breastfeeding or weight loss.

Are There More Benefits to Breast Augmentation?

Most of the time, women who undergo breast augmentation surgery focus only on the aesthetic aspects of the procedure, looking for a proportionate, more natural look. However, after the procedure itself, many patients are surprised to report better life quality, confidence, and self-esteem! It is safe to say that, while aesthetic improvements are their obvious goal, the benefits of breast augmentation go deeper than the skin.

Here at the Vinyard Institute of Plastic Surgery, we have made it our mission to restore confidence and self-esteem to our patients through proven experience, superior technology, and our willingness to turn our clients into our trusted friends. Are you curious to see how breast augmentation surgery can improve your life quality? Let’s talk about the three ways that breast augmentation could increase your confidence.

#1: Learning to Love Your Breasts

As we have noted earlier, this confidence issue stems from the uneasy relationship between women and how they look – women consider it a body image issue. They are looking for ways to improve their look, to walk past the mirror without feeling self-conscious. From being self-conscious to a decrease in confidence, we are one step away.

Breasts play a big part in a woman’s femininity, which is why the results found by a team of researchers at the University of Florida should not surprise us. On an 84-patient survey, the team of researchers concluded that 80% of women felt more confident with themselves and happier when walking past the mirror after a breast augmentation surgery.

#2: Discovering a Bolder Version of Yourself

With this sudden increase in confidence and self-esteem, women discover a newfound desire to go out into the world and live life to the fullest. Besides, these changes can be noticed in several aspects of a woman’s life – her job, her career, her fashion style, even her romantic life.

In an interview, Dr. Bruce Van Natta, Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon operating in Indianapolis, IN, says that listening to testimonials from women who underwent breast augmentation surgery has become a big part of his weekly schedule. Typically, women turn the discussion towards improved body image while also realizing how real “internal benefits,” such as increased confidence, can be.

After breast augmentation surgery, many women discover that they can finally revamp their wardrobe and fill their favorite shirts and dresses appropriately without being self-conscious about wearing padded, push-up bras or resorting to other methods of increasing their bust. This sense of renewed freedom will make you feel more of a daredevil, encouraging you to try on more and more different outfits and project enormous amounts of confidence on everyone that passes by you!

#3: Breast Augmentation and Improved Sex Life

This renewed confidence shows itself in a woman’s sex life as well, the same researchers from the University of Florida have concluded. In a study conducted by Cynthia Figueroa-Haas, PhD., 84 women filled in a series of questionnaires on self-esteem and sex life after getting a breast augmentation surgery. Overall, even though they didn’t have an issue with low self-esteem or poor sexual drive before the procedure, the women in question reported that both aspects of their lives were significantly improved after the procedure.

Another study, this time, conducted by Brazilian researchers, found even more impressive results – 80% out of the 45 subjects reported increased sexual satisfaction and arousal for up to 18 months following the procedure. Overall, because of this improved body image, women project increased confidence over their partners in their romantic lives, which leads to increased arousal and improved sex life.
