According to statistics provided by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation surgery is the number one cosmetic surgical procedure performed in the U.S.. Between 1992 and 2005, it shows an increase of 756%. From 2008 to 2010, each year around 300,000 women underwent breast augmentation surgery in the U.S., to have their breasts enhanced by the insertion of implants. However, at the same time, during 2008, over 40,000 operations were carried out for the removal of breast implants. In subsequent years, breast implant removal operations have been around 20,000 annually. This is a disturbing statistic that shows that, each year, twenty to forty thousand women, having incurred the huge cost of breast augmentation surgery, have felt compelled to have their implants removed for one reason or another. This raises serious questions about the viability, safety and economics of surgical breast augmentation.
Seeking Alternatives to Breast Augmentation Surgery
Statistics like these, together with increasing evidence of adverse side effects like loss of nipple sensation and increased risk of certain types of cancer, are causing small-breasted women to seek other options for breast augmentation that do not involve invasive surgery and insertion of foreign objects into their bodies. Recent developments in herbal sciences have identified substances known as phytoestrogens from plant sources, that have the ability to enlarge and enhance women’s breasts safely, effectively and at a small fraction of the cost of surgical augmentation.
Herbal Breast Enhancement
Several manufacturers of herbal supplements have used this information to formulate and market herbal breast enhancement pills and/or creams. Details about the actual ingredients used in such products and how these herbal ingredients achieve breast enhancement effects can be found at the breast actives website. The most successful of these products combine both pills and cream formulated with carefully selected plant and herbal extracts rich in phytoestrogens.
Beware of Counterfeit Breast Enlargement Products
While it has been proven that high quality herbal breast enhancement products are indeed effective as well as safe to use for most women, unfortunately there are some products sold on the internet by unscrupulous marketers which should be avoided as they are either ineffective or harmful or both. Before buying any herbal supplement that one has not used before, one should research the reputation and reliability of the producer/seller of the product. For U.S. based manufacturers, two indications of quality-consciousness are membership of the Natural Products Association and production facilities that conform to the USFDA’s “current Good Manufacturing Practices” (cGMP).
In any event, women should be happy with their breast. You are all beautiful, and accepting that fact will make you happy internally, which in turn will showcase on the outside.
