Since 2000, there has been a significant increase, about 37%, in breast augmentation procedures over the United States. Women from ages 13 to 55+ are seeking changes in their breast size. However, it seems the 30-39 age range is the dominating group out of all them. Why you ask? The reason could be very simple.
Women in this age group are typically finishing up their childbearing years. After pregnancy, you lose breast volume and your breasts are never really the same. To fix this issue, women seek breast implants to restore their breasts form and size. Sometimes liposuction and a tummy tuck are included with the breast implants to give a complete “mommy makeover.”
Dr. Mandell-Brown, Director of the Mandell-Brown Plastic Surgery Center in Cincinnati and Dayton, perform both breast augmentation and mommy makeover procedures. “Once mothers have children, their bodies may not return back to their pre-baby body they are used to so they seek small cosmetic changes to help get their bodies back to (or as close to) original form,” says Dr. Mandell-Brown.
Many people believe these women are seeking changes to feel younger, sexier and attract the attention of wondering eyes but that is not the case for most. When women go through changes, such as pregnancy, restoring your original body can be extremely hard and sometimes not possible. It can build unnecessary frustration and stress. “That is why some women seek plastic or cosmetic procedures, to help them feel “right” again,” notes Dr. Mandell-Brown.
Whatever the reason, women have to live with their bodies and when changes are made to its shape and form, it can be hard to deal with. That is why we have certified plastic and cosmetic surgeons, such as Dr. Mark Mandell-Brown, who are able to help females feel sexy and themselves again.
