The Psychological Benefits of Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery is consistently the most popular plastic surgery procedure in the United States. Although many people focus on the physical changes that result from breast augmentation surgery, for many women, the biggest impact may be psychological. Here is a closer look at the impact this plastic surgery procedure can have on patients’ emotional wellbeing.

Linking Breast Augmentation and Body Image

Women choose breast augmentation for a number of reasons, including to make clothing fit better. However, issues with body image are a leading complaint women have when they visit a plastic surgeon for a breast augmentation consultation. Women may be unhappy with the size of their breasts from a young age, or they may become dissatisfied with changes in their breasts after pregnancy. These confidence issues can creep into every part of a woman’s life, from confidence at work and school to personal relationships. By fixing their perceived problems with their breasts, women can experience a dramatic improvement in self-esteem. Among multiple studies regarding women and breast implants, one indicated that women reported an increase in their feelings of low self-esteem in the year before they got an augmentation, and that women who chose not to have the procedure required treatment by a psychiatrist more often than those who underwent surgery.

Understanding When Surgery Isn’t a Solution

Although the positive impacts of breast augmentation can be dramatic for patients, plastic surgery is not a quick fix. Dr Jennifer Geoghegan and other plastic surgeons spend a great deal of time ensuring that patients have realistic expectations about what surgery can help them achieve and are particularly careful to ensure women getting breast augmentations are doing it for themselves and not for the sake of a relationship or to deal with a stressful event. Furthermore, it important for women who experience depression to know that it can return, even if they feel better after surgery.

The best way to find out if breast augmentation or any cosmetic procedure is right for you is to schedule a consultation with plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Geoghegan. At Oasis Plastic Surgery in Scottsdale, our Dr. Geoghegan can help you make the right choice. Make your appointment by calling (480) 264-6428.
