Stroudsburg, PA (PRWEB) August 20, 2005
The demand for breast implants is (quite literally) bursting at the seams, reports 1800BeYourBest. In 2003, more than 250,000 American women underwent breast augmentation procedures. ThatÂs an eye-popping 657 percent increase since 1992. 1800BeYourBest, a nationwide plastic surgery and financing service, predicts that the trend will continue to grow steadily over the foreseeable future.
So whatÂs feeding this need for bodacious bust lines? Breast augmentation first became en vogue in the 1940s when Japanese prostitutes injected silicone, sponges or paraffin materials into their breasts because they thought American GIs prefer curvy women -- a preference that is still the rage sixty years later.
Nowadays, speculation about whether or not famous celebrities have undergone breast augmentation is popular fodder for the media. Celebrities like Pamela Anderson, Jessica Simpson and Lindsay Lohan, whether theyÂre au natural or cosmetically enhanced, are the current standard to which many women compare themselves.
Interestingly, however, surveys indicate that while breast implant purchasers admit the media adds pressure to enhance physical attributes, 64 percent still claim they underwent augmentation for personal reasons. More often than not, the driving motivation is a desire to enhance self-confidence. As cosmetic procedures become more mainstream, explains 1800BeYourBest, men and women are more inclined to fix the areas of their bodies that they are displeased with.
Chances are good that if youÂre not considering breast augmentation, then you know someone who is.
--- Breast augmentation is the most frequently-performed procedure in the United States.
--- Nearly three-quarters of breast implant patients increase their bust by two cup sizes.
--- WhoÂs the typical breast implant consumer? SheÂs in her 30Âs, married, with 2 kids and a household income under $70,000.
--- And perhaps, the most important statistic is customer satisfaction. A whopping 94 percent of patients claim they are ÂhappyÂ with their results.
As the trend for cosmetic procedures continues to grow, so does the demand for companies like 1800BeYourBest, who help patients locate reputable doctors in their area that specialize in their desired procedure.
