Breast Enhancement Boosts Sex Frequency

Breast enhancements and breast lifts have always scored high in our ‘Worth It’ ratings, but we wanted to dig deeper to know how women’s lives changed – for better or worse – and, with Valentine’s Day right around the corner, sex became our target. The results are in and it seems, in this case, bigger is better. Through our poll of breast enhancement patients on RealSelf, here are some of the intimate details we uncovered:
- 70% of women claimed their sex lives were more satisfying after their procedure
- 61% of women claimed they had sex more frequently after their breast plastic surgery, while only 7% claimed to have fewer sexual encounters
- On a scale of one to ten (one being the least satisfying), participants experienced more than a two point increase in overall sex life satisfaction – jumping from a 6.07 to an 8.13
- 28% of patients noted their sex life went up by four points or more based on the one to 10 scale!
RealSelf doctors we spoke with said the results were not surprising, as they’ve observed many patients who have a spring in the step and renewed sense of confidence post-op. It’s easy to see how this confidence can carry over to many aspects of life, including time between the sheets.
According to hundreds of breast implant reviews and on our site, 7.5 of 10 women who have had breast implants claim it was “Worth It,” and spent an average of $6,600 on the procedure. Surgical breast lifting, which costs $10,000 on average, is similarly satisfying with a “Worth It Rating” that says 8 of 10 women would do it again.
