Breast enlargement implants are surgically inserted behind the natural breast tissues to increase the size of the breasts and breast augmentation is performed to create better symmetry and make the breasts larger, firmer and fuller. Breast implant surgery (boob jobs) can also be carried out to correct abnormalities that have been present since birth or be used to reconstruct the breasts after essential surgery. According to the NHS eighty percent of all implant procedures are for cosmetic reasons with twenty per cent being breast reconstructions.
There are many psychological benefits to having breast implant enlargement implants. As well as boosting a woman’s self esteem and helping her feel happier and more confident about herself, women that have breast implant surgery for breast reconstruction purposes tend to recover more successfully from the trauma and effects of undergoing a full or partial mastectomy (surgical removal of a breast).
