Breast Augmentation Awareness and the Rise in Surgery Cost

Mar 25, 2008
The idea of getting bigger breasts artificially is giving fewer women in America these days a feeling of worry. The stigma of growing breasts larger with an implant keeps weakening every year because more information about it is easily available. I will touch on some points why breast augmentation is less feared both physically and psychologically, and afterwards, give some reasons why costs are also rising.

Marketing to American Women: The Psychological Lure

Advertisement in American media is wrought with images that glorify the extremes of beauty and sensuality. There are lofty images that women appeal to and the breast is one of those images that, clothed or otherwise, are an iconic part of the ensemble.

One media platform launching these images is television. For instance, reality TV shows show not just starlets with obvious breast jobs flaunting their goods, but actual depictions of real moms and daughters. Reality shows are like windows (however staged) that show by example what extremes families go to daily that include something like breast augmentation. The media bombardment has also prompted women to find out more about breast augmentation, including safety and procedures.

A Safe Venture

Not only does the look of breast augmentation get around, but the notoriety for its safety rating is getting around. More women are getting it done so more are explaining by email, blogs and word of mouth the ease of operation.

The actual procedure these days require less recovery time and minimal invasiveness. Depending specifically how the implants are inserted, on average a woman would normally wait about a week to fully recover. That's down quite a bit since breast augmentation's beginnings. Also, the recent news is that silicon breast implants, which had previously been banned by the FDA, were reevaluated and are now on the market.

So with the spike in sales, health studies information and copious amounts of media attention, a huge population of women from a variety of backgrounds are getting the procedure done.

The Costs

With some checking around clinics nationwide price ranges are sure to vary. The trend has caught on particularly among cities on the coast. The region cost varies so much that some women have sought out surgery in other countries. Some of these should be looked at critically, as there are different health codes and standards.

However some prospecting women have found cheaper rates from state to state. For instance if you were to get breast augmentation in San Diego, you would be paying at a premium. Surgery for breast implants in San Diego, where the demand is probably quadruple what it is for the rest of the nation, drives the prices higher.
