98% of women who have had Breast Augmentation Surgery say the results meet or exceeded their expectations, according to a prospective outcome study published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®. The study evaluated 225 consecutive women who returned for interviews at least one month after surgery over a five-year period.

The interview included questions about the recovery, results, complications and psychological effects. The average patient was thirty four years old, and the majority of women received saline-filled breast implants placed under the muscle. The average implant volume was 390 cc.

85% of women rated their new breast size just right. Only 1% out of the 225 women expressed dissatisfaction with their scars, which were usually located in the crease under the breast. 75% of women rated their breast firmness just right. When asked to rate the overall result of opting to go for Breast Augmentation Surgery, over 50% patients gave it a perfect 10 on a scale of 1 to 10. Almost all patients (98%) reported that the results met or exceeded their expectations.

Nearly 40% of the women surveyed experienced at least temporary nipple numbness after surgery. Persistent numbness was reported by only 2%. The complication rate reported by patients was 10%.When asked about psychological effects, 92% of patients reported improved self-esteem after Breast Augmentation and 64% reported an improved quality of life. Before surgery, the majority of women (86%) were self-conscious about their breasts. After surgery, only 13% were self-conscious about them.
