Breast Augmentation Dubai | 28 January 2019
1 Over 330,000 women had breast augmentation or breast lift surgery in the United States in the past year!
2 According to RealSelf, breast augmentation has a 97% “worth it” rating and is one of the highest rated cosmetic procedures available to women.
3 Plastic surgeons have performed breast augmentations for women ranging in age from 18 to 72 years old.
4 Breast augmentation isn’t just for the young. A woman in her 40’s is just as likely to have a breast augmentation as a woman in her 20’s or 30’s.
5 The average breast cup size in the United States is on the rise, and currently rests at a 36C. Fifteen years ago, the average size was a 34B.
6 All women have one breast that is slightly larger than the other and many can have one breast slightly lower than the other. This normal anatomic asymmetry can be improved, but rarely totally corrected during augmentation surgery.
7 Today’s silicone gel-filled breast implants are one of the most rigorously tested devices on the market. They can withstand more than 25 times the force of a routine mammogram.
8 The belief that breast implants interfere with breast feeding is not entirely true. Breast implants under the muscle do not interfere with breast feeding.
9 Smokers’ breasts tend to sag more than non-smokers because the chemicals in cigarettes break down the body’s natural elastin.
10 Often patients don’t realize that swelling after implant placement can take a while to resolve. Final size and shape may not be realized for up to six months.
