Breast augmentation and breast implants are the most common way women choose to re-shape and redefine both their bodies and their sexual power. Women who get breast implants do so for any number of reasons ranging from a desire to appear younger to a desire to re-fresh their marriage. Most women who get breast implants understand that a woman’s breasts are the most obvious and visible part of her sexual power that is viewable by the outside world. More than the face, lips, or hands, a woman displays her breasts in dresses and low-cut shirts in order to assert her sexual power over men and attract powerful men. Women understand that female power comes from sex and sexual allure. Breasts that are firm, larger, and strongly asserted in the view of men are a powerful symbol and attractor that turn men into jelly and provide women with a strong sense of self.
A woman’s breasts are both a sexual and fertility symbol that alert the world to her desire to procreate, mate, and enter into some form of a union with a man. Breast implants and breast augmentation have become exceptionally specialized and more and more common. Today, in 2010, breast augmentation is the most common form of cosmetic or plastic surgery precisely because women understand the relationship between sexual power and the female breasts. Breast implants and breast augmentation surgery come in two basic types: saline and silicone gel. Saline and silicone gel breast implants range in size, density, roundness, firmness and slope. Some women select a more natural appearing (teardrop) shape and choose silicone gel contoured breast implants while other women desire a breast augmentation with a firmer roundness or significantly greater depth and width and may select rounded saline filled breast augmentation.
Breast augmentation surgery incisions under the arm or through the navel now eliminate or minimise scarring so that women appear more and more naturalistic than ever after their cosmetic surgery is completed. Healing times from breast enhancement surgery have been dramatically reduced because of these new breast augmentation techniques and technologies. In the 1980s and 1990s breast augmentation was usually undertaken by wealthy women and celebrities ranging from pop singers to movie stars and porn actresses. Today, cosmetic surgeries such as breast augmentation and breast enhancement are more available and affordable than ever. This means that breast augmentation is now more and more accepted by society and as a beauty option for women to change both their appearance and their self-confidence into something more powerful than ever before.
