Three hundred Canadian women between the ages of 22 and 59 were recently surveyed about their desire to change any body parts, with eighty-seven per cent of them saying they would like to change at least one part of their body. Can you guess which body parts came in as highest priorities on their wish list? If you guessed stomachs and breasts, you are right, with stomachs being their top priority.
But in the United States, it appears those priorities are reversed.
Thirteen per cent of Canadian women have considered or are currently considering breast implant surgery, with women between the ages of 22 and 34 being seven times more likely to be entertaining that option. But in the United States, where breast augmentation is the number one requested plastic surgery procedure, it accounts for roughly 20 per cent of all performed cosmetic procedures.
Although it appears that breast implants become less of a priority with increasing age, I recently learned of one 82 year old woman who underwent the procedure and was thrilled with the result. Apparently, a woman’s relationship with her breasts is quite personal!
Have a beautiful life!
