4 Reasons Women Are Getting Breast Augmentation In 2019

Posted by Dr. Patrick Proffer on September 3, 2019

We always want to feel and look our best. But if you aren’t confident with your body shape, that can seem almost impossible. 


Maybe you’ve had kids and your breasts never regained their natural shape, maybe age and gravity have simply taken their toll, or maybe you were just born with a naturally small chest. Whatever the case may be, breast insecurities can be some of the most difficult to overcome. 

Breast augmentation might be your solution. More and more women are opting for breast augmentation. In fact, 313,735 women had breast augmentations in 2018, which is a 4% increase from the number of procedures done in 2017. 

This increase isn’t surprising when you consider the fact that breast augmentation surgery has an extremely high rate of patient satisfaction. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons released a study in which 98 percent of breast augmentation patients reported that the results met or exceeded their expectations. 

Women are becoming increasingly proactive about creating the body they really want, whether that’s through diet, exercise, augmentation, or all three! 

Why Are Women Choosing Breast Augmentation?

Most people, when they think of breast augmentation, immediately think of enlargement. But the benefits of breast augmentation go much further than that! Breast augmentation allows you to enlarge, reshape, or simply reposition your breasts in a way that makes you feel beautiful and confident. 

These are just a few of the reasons why women are turning to breast augmentation as a solution to end their insecurity.

1. To achieve more symmetrical breasts

No one is born with completely symmetrical breasts, but asymmetry is much more pronounced in some women than others. There are women who are an entire cup size larger on one side than the other – imagine how difficult it is to buy a bra! 

This can be a life-long issue, and it can also come about as a result of breastfeeding. Either way, breast augmentation is a way to alter your breasts to the size and the shape you would like.

2. For bigger bustier breasts

We come in all different shapes and sizes — and there is nothing wrong with that. However, there’s also nothing wrong with wanting to have larger breasts. You may have tried padded bras, push-up bras, and silicone bra inserts, but that doesn’t help you look the way you’d like while you’re naked, in lingerie, or in a bathing suit. 

Maybe you’ve lost the fullness due to age, breastfeeding, or weight loss. Maybe you were just born with a smaller chest. Whatever the case, implants can be used to add fullness. If you’re smaller than you’d like to be, consider augmentation as a great way to look amazing no matter what you’re wearing! 

3. To Boost Their Confidence

Looking good in clothing can be vital to self-confidence and key to looking polished and professional. But what if clothes that fit you well everywhere else never fit your breasts quite right? How do you find well-fitting clothes without always having to have them tailored? 

Breast augmentation might be the answer to making your body more proportionate, giving you a put-together look. Because it permanently improves your breasts shape and symmetry, it’s also a much-needed confidence booster.

4. To look more feminine and mature

Femininity looks different to everyone, which means everyone won’t want the same size breasts. But for some ladies, a flat chest can make you feel less mature. You might feel like you haven’t developed correctly or you look younger than other women your age.

That’s where breast augmentation comes in. Choose your own custom size and shape that will make you feel the most comfortable in your own skin. We can help you go up one size or three.


should you get breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation isn’t for everyone, but if you have felt insecure with your chest for years, it’s a great option. You should be at least 22 years old for silicone breast implants. You should also be willing to commit to the recovery process to ensure your breasts keep their new, perky shape.
