Research Links Breast Augmentation with Boost in Self-Esteem

According to research from the University of Florida, women who undergo breast augmentation enjoy a big boost in self-esteem and enhanced positive feelings about their sexuality.

Breast augmentations, which include the placement of breast implants, have been one of the most popular surgeries in the U.S. for several years, and it’s one of the most-requested procedures at John Park MD Plastic Surgery. Ensuring a woman looks and feels her best is at the core of fantastic cosmetic surgery experience.

Intersectional Benefits Of Plastic Surgery

According to lead researcher Cynthia Figueroa-Haas, who published the findings in Plastic Surgical Nursing, there are many intersectional benefits to plastic surgery. She hopes that her study “provides the impetus for future studies related to self-esteem, human sexuality, and cosmetic surgery.” It’s estimated that over 360,000 women in the U.S. will opt for breast augmentation surgery in the coming year, and the already popular procedure has increased 427 percent since 2000. That’s a lot of women who are enjoying a deserved boost in self-confidence.

Breast Augmentation Boosts Bedroom Confidence Too

The researchers worked with 84 women between the ages of 21 – 57 and recorded their self-esteem and sexuality before and after breast augmentation. The study participants were already scheduled for the surgery before they joined the study. After breast augmentation, the average self-esteem score rose from 20.7 to 24.9 on the 30-point Rosenberg scale. Their sexual function score increased from 27.2 to 31.4 on a 36-point scale. However, the biggest increases were in intimate situations, with sexual desire increasing an incredible 78.6 percent after surgery.

Researchers were pleased with the results. According to Figueroa-Haas, “Plastic surgery can be a very positive experience” well beyond strictly aesthetics. A great cosmetic surgery will enhance many aspects of a person’s life, and it’s no surprise that looking your best is directly related to feeling your best.
