2017 Breast Augmentation Statistics


Breast augmentation in Phoenix AZBreast augmentation has been a popular procedure in the United States for decades. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, it has consistently been ranked the top cosmetic surgical procedure since 2006. The top surgery is defined by the number of procedures performed annually.

In 2017, more than 300,000 breast augmentations were performed by ASPS member surgeons alone. That was a 3 percent increase over 2016. Will it retain its standing in 2018? Only time will tell, but breast augmentation is consistently popular because while it of course enlarges the breasts and enhances their overall appearance, it also gives better proportion to the body and makes almost all clothes fit and feel better. The procedure is also tailored to the look and feel you want. There are several ways breast augmentation can be designed for you:

  • Breast implant type (saline or silicone)
  • Breast implant size
  • Breast implant shape (round or anatomic/teardrop)
  • Breast implant profile (projection vs. width)
  • Placement above or below the chest muscle
