A recent study in the July issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery may have pointed out what seems to be obvious: breast augmentation improves quality of life for women. From the countless stories and cases we have presented in NewBeauty magazine, we could have told you that.
Here’s what we didn’t know: the significant gains recorded in the study were similar in magnitude to reactions recorded from people who have had hip replacement surgery. That means for more than 80 percent of women who reported significant improvement in three key areas, the procedure was considered as life altering as hip replacement surgery.
As the most common procedure performed in the United States, breast augmentation, though not lessening in popularity, has previously had a bad rap as self-indulgent. However, it’s clear that it has benefits beyond the superficial. The study noted profound positive impact on the vast majority of participants’ satisfaction with their breasts, psychosocial health and sexual well-being. Again, plenty of women who have undergone breast augmentation could have told you that, but it’s nice to see it in black and white.
