They got what they wanted, and then some.

Researchers at the University of Florida asked 84 women with breast implants about their self-esteem and sexuality before and after the operation. Most of the women claimed that, before surgery, they already had relatively healthy self-esteem and just wanted larger breasts; but after surgery, the women found that their self-esteem skyrocketed.

“A lot of people consider plastic surgery a procedure that doesn’t need to be done. They say women should stay with their bodies and what God gave them and be satisfied. I don’t agree,” Cynthia Figueroa-Haas, PhD, clinical assistant professor, told the press. “This procedure does change women’s psychosocial issues.”

Another one of those changes takes place in the bedroom. The study’s participants reported improvement in every aspect of their sex life, including desire, arousal and satisfaction.

Although Figueroa-Haas finds the study’s results very positive, she rightly insists that breast implants are not a cure-all for personal problems: “If you have underlying psychological issues, don’t run out and see a plastic surgeon. These issues have to be addressed first.”
