Study Reveals Psychological Benefits of Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast augmentation, or the insertion of breast implants, has benefits well beyond aesthetics. It is one of the most popular surgeries at Dr. Shaun Parson Plastic Surgery & Skin Center, and with good reason. Research published in the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery journal included case studies of 360 women two years following their breast augmentation surgery. The women opted for either smooth or textured gel-filled breast implants, and measures of their psychological state were taken six, 12, and 24 months after their surgery.

The Mental Benefits of Implants

According to researchers, the women overall rated “very high levels of satisfaction” with both the aesthetic and psychological outcomes of their surgery. Within the two year period, these high satisfaction levels did not change at all. More than 90 percent of the women rated themselves as either “very satisfied” or “satisfied” over the 24-month period. Nearly 85 percent of women said the many benefits of the surgery exceeded any risks. In rare instances, post-surgical issues such as capsular contracture occurred, and this of course lowered the woman’s satisfaction ranking.

Choosing the best breast augmentation surgeon in Scottsdale is key not only in enjoying the results, but in minimizing any risks or side effects. A high-quality breast augmentation surgeon can help a woman choose the right breast implants for her, reduce recovery period and scarring, and help ensure an overall positive experience for years after the surgery.

The researchers report that in the analysis of attrition, there were no biases in the study due to complications. There was a small effect stemming from the FDA’s “possible impact” warning of breast implant risks (which occurred during the study). However, ultimately the vast majority of women loved their results immediately after the surgery and for months following.
