According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more and more women of the 18-25 demographic are seeking breast augmentation. “More than 3,300 women under the age of 19 had breast augmentation surgery in 2013; that’s a 64 percent increase in the past decade,” the ASPS reported a few weeks ago.
While breast implants in Chicago are very common for women who are bit older, and are seeking to reclaim a fuller, lifted bust after having children, it’s also a popular procedure for younger women who are insecure about being “flat-chested.”
However, many young women suffer with having one breast that is larger than the other (breast asymmetry) and undergo Chicago breast implant surgery correct this condition. Not surprisingly, the vast majority of women who struggle with breast asymmetry also have very low self-esteem.
Breast augmentation, just like any plastic surgery procedure, is not a decision to be taken lightly. Aespala takes pride in educating all of our patients and patients-to-be on all of the benefits as well as potential risks of any surgery. For example, breast implants may need to be replaced after 20-25 years and we believe this is a factor that younger women need to weigh.
“During the consultation process at Aespala MedSpa and Plastic Surgery, we discuss the chances that implants may need to be replaced in another surgery,” says top board-certified Chicago plastic surgeon, Dr. Michael Marschall. “For younger women, especially those with breast asymmetry, the benefits of breast augmentation – such as confidence boosting – often outweigh the potential of another surgery.”
