Breast Augmentation Surgery Catalyst for Mental Well-Being, Says New Study

Overview: We've known for a long time that undergoing breast augmentation surgery, or in fact any type of breast surgery, can dramatically improve an individual's appearance and increase their self-confidence. But a recent study has shown that patients who undergo breast surgery to improve their breast symmetry can show a significant improvement in mental health. To find out more, read the full article below.

In a paper titled Psychological Impact of Breast Asymmetry on Adolescents: A Prospective Cohort Study, researchers found that there was a significant physiological impact affecting adolescents with breast asymmetry. They suggested that early surgery on fully developed adolescents may have mental health benefits for those who suffer from considerable breast asymmetry.

These are findings that are consistent with the experiences of many plastic surgeons all over the world who regularly see improvements in the mental well-being of the patients they treat. While some breast asymmetry is natural and especially common during puberty, the effects it can have on the emotional well-being and self-esteem of young females often mean that correctional surgery can be extremely beneficial. Surgery is only ever performed on fully developed breasts and when performed early in a patient's life, it can have great emotional benefits.

It's not just breast surgery that can have these positive effects on mental well-being, it's almost all plastic surgery procedures. While some procedures focus on turning back the hands of time and fighting age, others are focused on helping a patient regain their self-esteem and confidence. These procedures include ear surgery (otoplasty), and nose surgery (rhinoplasty), and the emotional benefits of these procedures can turn patients' lives around. As many plastic surgeons will tell you, surgery is not about changing a person's life entirely but instead about taking the things that are holding a person back, changing them, and letting that person get on with their life. With procedures like breast surgery, otoplasty and rhinoplasty, Dr. Brian Peterson and his team at Peterson MD can do just that.

Bottom Line: For many individuals, plastic surgery is not about turning back time but about helping them regain their confidence. A recent study has shown that breast asymmetry can have notable negative effects on the emotional well-being of adolescents and that correctional surgery can be very beneficial. Likewise, many plastic surgeons all over the world regularly see similar circumstances with patients undergoing a variety of surgeries. These often include nose surgery and ear surgery, and these procedures can give patients the confidence they need to move forward in life and improve their mental well-being.
