Breast Implants Improve Sex Life Says Real Self Survey

New Stat: 70% of women are having better sex and more orgasims after having breast implants! Dr. Paul Wigoda asks: Can having breast augmentation surgery improve your sex life? According to a survey conducted by Real Self, a large online community for those who have had or are interested in cosmetic surgery, revealed a surprising connection between breast enlargement surgery and more action in the bedroom.

The poll was conducted in January 2012 and tells an interesting tale. About 61% of participating women who spent the dough to get better looking breasts reported having more sex post-surgery. At least a quarter of responding women rated their sexual satisfaction as being four or more points higher after surgery than before.

The results of the poll are not all that surprising considering one of the key factors in having a great time in the bedroom is self-confidence. Breast augmentation typically improves a woman’s self-esteem, which many Fort Lauderdale plastic surgeons like Dr. Wigoda say becomes immediately apparent when they see their patients at follow up appointments. The women dress differently and carry themselves more confidently that they did before their surgeries.

Even Bethenny Frankel, former Real Housewife of New York City, admitted on her daytime show Bethenny that her breast implants made her feel “like I was a little hotter, you know a little perkier.” [source] Frankel got implants to combat sagginess that developed after she lost 30 pounds post-high school.

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries performed. Between 2009 and 2012, over one million women got breast implants. It can cost anywhere from $6,000 to $10,000 depending on the type of implants and the surgical procedure used. However, 7.5 out of every 10 women that responded to the Real Self survey said that it was completely worth the time and expense involved.
