Breast Augmentation Procedures Are Hot In New Jersey

Breast Augmentation With Implants

Breast augmentation procedures have been among the top cosmetic surgery procedures since 2006 and are continually growing in popularity. In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reported that approximately 290,000 breast augmentations were performed in 2016 alone, making it the highest-ranking cosmetic procedure. As a result, it is still one of the hottest procedures in New Jersey in 2018, as an increasing number of women in the tri-state area are interested in increasing their cup size and self-esteem. At Gartner Plastic Surgery and Laser Center, we have noticed the following trends in breast augmentation procedures.

More Women are Requesting a Smaller Increase

One of the most notable trends in breast augmentation procedures is smaller breast implants. While many patients previously opted for much larger breasts, often hoping for a dramatic transformation, more women are now requesting smaller implants, in pursuit of a natural outcome that will not appear surgically enhanced. There are many reasons for this trend, including:

  1. The desire breasts that appear natural and perky.
  2. The desire for athletic-looking breasts which suit an active lifestyle.
  3. The desire for a subtle change which will not draw unwanted attention.
  4. The desire to increase confidence by making a small adjustment to the bust line.

During your consultation, Dr. Gartner will help you choose the best breast implant size and shape for your body frame and aesthetic goals.

More Women Are Requesting Silicone Implants

Another notable trend in breast augmentation surgery is the choice of implant. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the vast majority of women are now selecting silicone implants. While saline used to be a popular choice and just 20% of women chose silicone implants back in 2006, more than 70% of breast augmentations are now done using silicone implants.

Because silicone implants have a texture similar to natural breast tissue, they tend to look and feel much softer and more natural than saline implants. In addition, they are made up of a soft, elastic gel encased in an outer silicone shell, which minimizes the risk of complications such as rippling and rupturing.

More Women Are Requesting A Breast Lift

Just as the number of women seeking a breast augmentation is on the rise, an increasing number of women are also requesting a breast lift to restore their breast’s appearance following pregnancy or significant weight loss. Since 2000, the number of breast lifts performed has increased by a staggering 70%, which means this trend has outpaced the growth of breast implants by two to one. While many women request a breast lift in combination with their breast augmentation to fill in their chest and correct sagging, women who are satisfied with the size of their chest often only require a breast lift to rejuvenate the appearance of their breasts.
