Here’s a real interesting and juicy question that many women who are considering breast augmentation or breast lift surgery might like to know the answer to: Can a breast augmentation or a breast lift improve my sex life?
The extremely positive impact that these plastic surgery procedures have on one’s appearance and self-esteem are very well known but can they also lead to better and more frequent sex?
In short: YES!!
Yes! Yes!! Yes!!!!
Several questions related to one’s sex life both before and after breast enhancement surgery were asked in a voluntary poll of women visiting the website RealSelf.com. The result revealed that 61% of women had sex more frequently after their cosmetic breast procedures as compared to 7% who engaged in sex with others less often. A substantial majority, 70%, stated that they had an improvement in the satisfaction of their sex life with 28% quantifying this as an increase of 4 or more points based on a one to ten scale. Overall, the change was from 6.11 before a breast augmentation and/or mastopexy to 8.13 after surgery, on a scale of one to ten.
Pretty darn high!
A comparable poll was attempted in order to obtain the male point of view on the effects of breast augmentation and breast lift on one’s sex life but when the words sex, breasts and breast implants were used in the same sentence, very few men were able to concentrate enough to finish the study….
But we all know what the answers would be without having to conduct a study!!

A Message Regarding Coronavirus/COVID-19
In light of the coronavirus/COVID-19 pandemic, we would like to let you know of some of the major precautions we are taking in our office to maximize cleanliness and keep the environment as sanitary and safe as possible. Our highest priority is always to ensure the safety of every individual who sees us and we are taking extreme infection-control measures to maintain cleanliness and “sterility” of surfaces and the overall environment.
We will be limiting dates and times for office appointments and consultations due to safety and other issues. Consequently, if you have already made an office appointment or consultation prior to March 18, 2020 to occur at a later time, this may need to be changed.
For anyone considering plastic surgery, we are now offering Virtual Consultations and Telemedicine through Skype. A great number of aesthetic or insurance-related issues can be evaluated via pictures and online video conferencing, making this an excellent way to find out more about particular procedures, determine candidacy for treatment, receive answers to questions and facilitate being able to move forward with care once the government lifts all restrictions.
In an abundance of caution, we are asking all current patients who are experiencing a fever, cough, chills, fatigue or any type of respiratory illness to please delay any upcoming appointments at our practice. We can talk with you by phone or email to establish a new date and time for the appointment.
We are all in this together. Our team urges everyone to follow the guidelines recommended by local health authorities and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, which include frequent handwashing for a minimum of 20 seconds, social distancing, staying home if you are feeling sick, and contacting your healthcare provider if you feel you are experiencing symptoms.
