Why Breast Implants Are on the Rise During the Pandemic


During the pandemic, we have seen rising interest in plastic surgery. The American Society Of Plastic Surgeons reported in 2021 that more people became interested in plastic surgery than before COVID-19.

For months, COVID-19 had people mostly confined to their homes and affected their lives in profound ways. But, while the pandemic is still with us, vaccines and other factors have allowed people to get back to everyday life.

As that has occurred this year, more women have wanted breast implants. Why is this happening?

This article explores some of the factors that have led to an increased interest in plastic surgery and breast implants.

Why Women Want Breast Implants

Breast augmentation has long been one of the most popular plastic surgeries, which hasn’t changed in the COVID-19 era. Many women report that they have more motivation than ever to get breast implants.

According to Dr. Scott Farber of Hill Country Plastic Surgery, ‘It seems that more patients value improving their bodies and self-esteem during the pandemic than before. Perhaps they understand now is the time to live their life to the fullest and become the best versions of themselves.”

Women also are opting for breast implants during the COVID-19 era for these reasons:

More Time

More people than ever work from home during the pandemic. This has led to millions of Americans having more interest in plastic surgery.

Women who want breast implants can have the surgery knowing they don’t need to take as much time off work.

After breast enhancement surgery, many women can recover at home, and their employer may not even know.

Not taking time off work encourages more women to have breast implants. After all, when’s a better time to recover from surgery when you can work from your home office and not miss a beat?

Increase Self-Esteem

Women often want larger, fuller breasts to feel more attractive. Also, having a more attractive chest can improve self-confidence and self-esteem.

Having breast implants can help women feel more feminine and better about themselves. And feeling good about yourself may take more priority during the COVID-19 era than before.

Look Younger

The aging process can make the breasts lose volume, sag, and even get smaller. As a result, women in their 40s and 50s may want breast implants to turn back the clock.

Breast implants paired with a breast lift can make the woman look years younger. And during the pandemic, more women feel the need to look more youthful and embrace their time.

Body Changes After Children

After pregnancy and breastfeeding, the breasts can sag and deflate, making the woman look older than she is.

But breast implants can restore her figure to how it was before having children.

Feel Sexier

The pandemic makes more people want to embrace the best there is in life. For example, if a woman has breast implants, she may feel sexier and more desirable.

However, no one should have breast implants to satisfy someone else. Getting breast augmentation is a personal choice, and the woman should only do it for herself.

Improved Symmetry

Some women have asymmetrical breasts for a variety of reasons. This can affect how clothing fits, and it can make them self-conscious.

Breast implants will make you look more symmetrical and give you more self-confidence.

Correct Problems From Another Surgery

Some patients may have had breast augmentation before that didn’t go as well as they liked. This can happen if the patient chooses a surgeon who isn’t board-certified.

The good news is that revision surgery can improve the appearance of the breasts. However, the woman may need replacement implants or another fix to make the breasts look more natural.

Small Breasts

Women with unusually small breasts may not feel as feminine as their friends and co-workers. They also may be embarrassed about how they look with clothes on or in the bedroom.

A common complaint is not being able to find clothes that fit. But breast implants can give a woman a larger chest and make her feel more feminine.

Any of the reasons mentioned above may be accentuated during the pandemic. After all, many people may feel the time to live is now because you never know how much time you have.

Breast Implant Tips

If you decide to have breast implants, you will probably love the results. But there are several things you can do to improve your results. After all, during the pandemic, you want everything to go well so you can live your best life!

Ask For Help

Before breast augmentation, you should ask a friend or family member to help you after the procedure. You will be tired and sore, so you need help doing chores and caring for small children.

You should not engage in heavy lifting for about six weeks after breast implants. And you will need someone to drive you as long as you take prescription pain medication.

Pain Management Is Key

You will likely have mild to moderate discomfort after breast implants. For example, some patients feel tightness and pressure in the chest. Your surgeon will give you a few days of pain medication to be more comfortable.

But after a few days, you may only need over-the-counter medication. It helps to fill your doctor’s prescription the day before surgery, so you have it available.

Get A Lot Of Rest

Getting rest after breast implants sound apparent, but it may be more challenging than you think. You may be used to being on the go all the time, but now is the time to take it easy.

Have a comfortable place to lie down and rest during the day. Have books, magazines, and a Netflix subscription to keep you occupied.

Getting breast implants is more popular than ever during the pandemic. If you think about this procedure, you have a lot you can look forward to!

Most women say breast augmentation was one of the best things they ever did. This procedure will make you look younger, more attractive and give you the elf-confidence that you have dreamed of.
