New Study Finds Breast Implants May Improve Women’s Sex Lives

Are you looking for a way to boost your satisfaction in bed? You may want to consider undergoing breast augmentation. A new study has found that getting breast implants may improve a woman’s sex life.

The study, conducted by researchers in Brazil, evaluated 45 women who were about to undergo breast augmentation. Prior to their procedure, all the women answered a questionnaire which evaluated the quality of their sex lives and their sexual satisfaction. This questionnaire was administered again 2, 4, and 18 months after surgery.

The results were largely positive, although it seems that the quality of your results significantly impact whether you experience an improved sex life after getting breast implants. In particular, whether you develop stretch marks following your procedure significantly impacts the outlook for your sexual satisfaction.

Out of the 45 women included in the study, all 36 who did not develop stretch marks after getting breast implants experienced improved levels of arousal and increased sexual satisfaction. However, the 9 women who developed stretch marks did not experience a similar improvement in their sex lives.

This is yet another reason to carefully research your options when choosing a breast augmentation surgeon. Working with a highly skilled, board certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. David Bottger can ensure you achieve beautiful, natural looking results, allowing your sex life to soar after your procedure.

New Silicone Breast Implants May Contain Radio Frequency Chip to Diagnose Issues

There are many benefits to choosing silicone breast implants, most importantly a more natural look and feel, making them the most popular choice among breast augmentation patients. However, some of these benefits also create potential problems in the event of a rupture.

Silicone breast implants maintain their shape after a rupture. While this helps you maintain a beautiful appearance, it prevents you from knowing a rupture has occurred. But a new technological innovation from Establishment Labs may eliminate this issue.

Establishment Labs has recently developed a radio frequency identification (RFID) microchip which provides plastic surgeons and their patients with easier access to information about the implants. A handheld device can be used to identify the make, model, serial number, manufacturer name, and much more data about the breast implant.

This technology can provide women with increased safety and help identify issues such as a breast implant rupture more easily. Silicone breast implants in 28 European countries will be equipped with these microchips in the coming months. Establishment Labs is currently in the approval process for the device in other parts of the world.

For many women, breast augmentation can be a life-changing procedure, helping you look and feel your best. When performed by a highly skilled and experienced, board certified plastic surgeon such as Dr. David Bottger, the procedure is extremely safe. However, technology like this new microchip can help improve safety to even higher levels, benefitting all breast augmentation patients.
