Besides the aesthetic improvements, breast implants can also positively affect a patient’s mental and emotional well-being. In fact, a new Brazilian study found that women who underwent breast implant surgery reported having a better sex life than before the procedure.
The study showed that women who got implants in order to increase their breast size experienced a significant boost in their sex life, with more desire, satisfaction and arousal, several months following the procedure. Experts explained that these results suggest that getting breast implants can help improve a woman’s confidence in the bedroom.
These findings are not surprising, as changing one’s appearance for the better often also raises their self confidence in other aspects of their life, changing how they feel about themselves and how they interact with others.
However, not all of the study participants experienced these positive changes. Women who developed stretch marks after getting breast implants did not report having a more satisfying sex life. These study participants’ results highlight the importance of getting the right sized implants for your body.
From how much breast tissue you currently have to the thickness of your skin, several factors influence your risk of developing stretch marks following your cosmetic procedure. For example, picking an implant size that is much bigger than your natural breasts will require your skin tissue to stretch a substantial amount, which increases your chances of getting stretch marks.
Although stretch marks do tend to lighten and fade over time, it’s understandable for patients to want to completely avoid getting them. Doing so comes down to choosing the implant type and size that best suits your body and skin type. Carefully following your doctor’s aftercare instructions can also decrease the appearance of stretch marks and scars post surgery.
Consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon who is extensively experienced in breast augmentation is the first step to making sure that you will be satisfied with your results.
