Women have face lifts and breast implants to improve self-confidence, not to impress men
30 April 2012Women have breast surgery and face lifts for a whole variety of reasons, but improving self-confidence is top of the list according to industry experts. The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS) says women who choose to have breast implants tend to fall into two categories young women who feel their breasts are too small and mothers who have given birth to two or three children and want a firmer bust. A report by the Daily Mail said that in every case, women say "increasing confidence" is the number one reason why they have chosen to have a procedure, rather than make themselves more attractive to men. More than 10,000 women are believed to have had boob jobs carried out in 2011, and that figure is expected to hit 12,000 this year. Kristy Taylor, a 32-year-old mother of two from South London, opted to undergo surgery to improve the look of her sagging breasts. She told the newspaper: "After breastfeeding, all the firmness had disappeared and I wanted to get that back. In the end, I went from a 34B to a 34D and it has made me so much happier with my body."
