Many women wish that their chests were different in one way or another. Some women with extremely large breasts wish they were smaller due to the back pain they can cause. However, this is a small number compared to the hundreds of thousands who long for larger breasts and the tens of thousands who are willing to undergo surgery to simply have firmer breasts.
Genetics, childbirth, breastfeeding, weight gain or loss and simple gravity all take a toll on how a woman’s breasts will change and transform over the years. Perky and firm in the teens and twenties, that perkiness usually falls away as the thirties roll around. Gravity does have an affect on a woman’s bosom and as the years go by, the breasts will move closer and closer to the waistline.
Gaining and losing great deals of weight can greatly impact how firm the breasts are as the skin is stretched out. Breastfeeding will cause a dramatic change from the constant swelling of the breasts with milk.
There was a time when women had to accept a sagging, lowering breastline as a simple fact of nature. Those blessed with smaller or larger breasts simply had to accept them for what they were. Now, however, breast surgeries are available to correct any perceived problem with the chest. Whether a woman is seeking to have her breasts reduced, enlarged or simply lifted up and put back in place for a more youthful look, plastic surgery can take care of the problem.
The popularity of breast implants continues to grow every year. 2010 saw 296,000 breast augmentations performed and 2011 saw that number increase to 307,000. Women who have breast implant surgery performed include corporate executives, housewives, mothers, teachers and more than a few celebrities. Gwyneth Paltrow, Victoria Beckham and Hilary Duff are just a handful of the famous women who have chosen a larger chest over the smaller one they were born with.
Breast lifts also gained a little in popularity with nearly 91,000 women having one performed in 2011 compared to 90,000 women in 2010. Breast lifts are ideal for women who are happy with their chest size but find that the breasts are sagging too much. Coming from all walks of life, these women are joined by celebrities Mariah Carey, Elle Macpherson and Drew Barrymore.
Changing your breasts can lead to greater self-confidence and improved self-esteem. The surgeries are safe and women can now choose between saline and silicone implants.
