tilda_chanelGreetings, Gorgeous Friends!

We’ve been abuzz here at deme with the latest news from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Read up on what we’ve jotted down in deme’s Little Black Book:

  • Why Women Love Breast Augmentations More Than Ever! Over the past seven years, breast augmentation has been the number one medical cosmetic procedure, with an average of 300,000 patients deciding to opt for the procedure each year. And, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, it’s easy to see why.

  • The ASPS recently published a study in which 98 percent of women surveyed reported that their breast augmentation results either “met or exceeded their expectations.” Eighty-five percent of women rated their new breast size “just right,” neither too small nor egregiously large.deme's_little_bb

  • And then there’s this incredibly positive finding: Another 90% of the women surveyed also reported self-esteem improvements. According to the study:

  • “When asked about psychological effects, 92 percent of women reported improved self-esteem after breast augmentation and 64 percent reported an improved quality of life. Before surgery, the majority of women (86 percent) were self-conscious about their breasts. After surgery, only 13 percent were self-conscious about them.” The procedure has even been linked to other benefits including an improved sex life. Wow.

We can’t help but feeling proud at deme after reading such studies. deme’s Head of Plastic Surgery, Kevin Cross, MD, is noted throughout the region for his tasteful, natural-looking breast augmentation procedures (see his work here). He often counsels young women concerned about being able to breastfeed later in life (note: it’s a myth that breast augmentation interferes with nursing). And many of Dr. Cross’s deme patients are women who have finished family-making and have benefitted tremendously by breast lifts combined with natural-looking augmentation to restore their silhouettes to pre-nursing life–a major boost to self-esteem for those women who have been despondent over the inevitable post-partum “droop.” 

At deme, we are always pleased to read such outstandingly positive numbers, but it also frankly confirms what we and our patients know: Loving your body and the way it looks has a profound impact on the ways we see ourselves, our self-esteem, and feelings of pride and confidence. 

Dr. Cross is always happy to meet with you for breast augmentation and/or lift consultation to see if the procedure might be right for you. Please feel to call deme to book a consultation at 215.561.3363, or contact us using the form below:
