Breast Augmentation Trends

Breast Augmentation | Breast Implants | VirginiaHard to believe that another year is quickly coming to an end.  Where does the time go?  Fortunately for many beauty trends, they go as quickly as they came.  But, for some trends, they stand the test of time and last longer than others.  Do you think it’s trendier to have smaller or larger breast augmentation surgeries?

Large breasts were extremely popular in the early 2000s.  Between 2000 and 2006, the procedure’s popularity rose by 55%.  Celebrities such as Stevie Nicks, Sharon Osbourne, and Pamela Anderson had decided to “downsize” to have a more natural and radiant look. Breast ideals, for example, had dramatically changed in 2016 since large breast implants were not fashionable any longer. Smaller breast implants and breast reduction were among the most popular beauty trends 2016. With countless celebrities going back to smaller natural boobs, it’s not surprising the crowd follows.

Since breasts generally represent a woman’s femininity and sexuality, many women like to cosmetically alter their size and shape. Surgeons say most of their patients currently prefer a one cup size increase. They rather achieve more modest results. Also, people are now more careful and think about the long-term implications of unnatural-looking surgery. Implants tend to last longer these days and some women may not want larger breast implants when they get older.
