There was a very interesting article about breast enlargement in the Times newspaper this week that pointed out that British women have more dissatisfaction with the size of their breasts than anywhere else. Indeed, so much of the UK tabloid media and reality TV has focused on breast size and shape.
This has been a constant source of annoyance to the women’s liberation movement and most arbiters of good taste. There I, however a serious consequence to this breast cult. More than two thirds of women are unsatisfied with their breast size, making them less likely to perform important cancer checks.
The largest study of its kind, published in the journal Body Image has found that across the world only 29 per cent of women were happy with the size of their breasts, with 48 per cent wishing they were bigger and 23 per cent wanting to be smaller.
Of all the countries surveyed, British women exhibited the largest difference between breast size and preferred size, with a greater desire on average for a larger bust than in any other nation. The women most comfortable with their own breast size were those from Ghana, Colombia, Spain, Paraguay and Indonesia.
Breast enhancement surgery is quite straightforward. There are many ways to perform breast enlargements. The method must be tailored to the individual patient needs. The principal is to create a pocket under the breast tissue and place a breast implant into that pocket. The breast enlargement operation is done under either local anaesthetic (you are awake) or general anaesthetic (you are asleep).
Viren Swami, a professor of social psychology at Anglia Ruskin University, said that there were other public health implications from the findings. “One of the things we found was that there was a significant association between breast satisfaction and psychological wellbeing.” he said. “If a woman is more dissatisfied with her breasts she is also more likely to have lower self-esteem and be unhappy.”
From our own research we are aware that UK women are the most enthusiastic users of our site ‘googling' queries such as ‘cheapest country for breast enhancement' and ‘cheap boob jobs'. We know that countries such as Turkey and Dubai are currently offering very good deals on breast enlargement and we hear that Czech Republic is gaining ground quickly.
Boob job prices in the UK start from £3,745 and increase to over £6,000, with the average cost sitting at £4,200. The price depends on a number of factors including the size and type of implants you want, the surgeon you use and the surgical provider you go for. At the American Aesthetic Clinic in Istanbul for example Ergin Er their plastic surgeon seems to offer breast implant packages at around the $3200 mark. The Nirunda clinic in Bangkok charges around $5000 with all tests and a night in the clinic and post operative attention.It’s important to bear all of these factors in mind when planning your boob job, without being tempted to make a quick decision based on price alone. These prices are just estimates and depend on the individual patient and the type of implant they choose.
