A survey back in 2013 reported a success rate of 98% among American women who have undergone breast augmentation surgery with 85% meeting their desired breast sizes. The Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery journal stated that most of these women had their lives return to normal including being able to breastfeed within 25 days. Confidence of these women had also reportedly improved after the procedure.
Figures exhibited by publications like the one cited above encourage more women to undergo plastic surgery for a number of cosmetic reasons, but, restoring or reconstructing one’s breast(s) after the treatment of health conditions like breast cancer is a known medical benefit. Despite the promising rate of success, breast augmentation must only be performed by licensed plastic surgeons from established practices like Knight and Sanders.
