Findings published by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons addressed the physical and psychological impact of having silicone breast implants and the confidence of the patient prior to surgery. The results refute the common misconception that women desiring breast implants have low overall self-esteem.
According to ASPS Member Surgeon and study author Mary McGrath, MD, “Breast augmentation patients do not have a poorer overall self-image, nor are they more self-critical and preoccupied with their appearance than other women. It appears it is their significant dissatisfaction with their breasts that serves as the motivation for surgery, not a poor overall body image.”
Additionally, women who undergo breast augmentation report being less embarrassed about their breasts after surgery and say they spend less time attempting to camouflage them.
