Can breast enhancement surgery give you a better orgasm?
Maybe. According to a poll by RealSelf.com, women who had chosen to receive breast implants or breast lifts claimed a 34% increase in overall satisfaction with their sex lives, on average. They also claimed to have more sex post-procedure.
The survey, conducted on RealSelf.com, found that 61% of women reported they had sex more frequently after their breast plastic surgery, while only 7% claimed to have fewer sexual encounters. 70% of respondents said their overall sex life satisfaction improved after the procedure; 28% of patients go even further, claiming their satisfaction levels went up “four points or more” based on the one to ten scale.
It may be impossible to prove that the surgeries themselves were responsible for women’s increased sexual pleasure, but we suspect the confidence boost patients receive has much to do with it.
Plastic surgeries have made a fresh round of headlines lately. While breast implants may lead to more pleasurable repercussions for adults, a number of teens are opting for another procedure with the goal of looking good for prom: chin implants are reportedly on the rise among high-schoolers.
The total number of cosmetic procedures performed in the United States by plastic surgeons has nearly doubled since 2000, with plastic surgeons performing almost 14 million procedures in 2011. It’s not all good news on the breast implant front, however; 8,000 French women recently had their implants removed after ruptures in their brand of insert were found to cause health problems.

AUSTIN (KXAN) – Graduations are behind us this semester, but there’s a growing trend of more and more graduates getting plastic surgery as gifts.
“I’m not shocked completely because there’s a growing trend for plastic surgery in all age ranges,” said plastic surgeon Jennifer Walden. “And basically, with teenagers getting plastic surgery, it kind of goes along with plastic surgery being more accessible, pervasive in our media.”
Most popular procedures
Walden said teenagers need to be emotionally ready for a permanent change in their body after undergoing surgery. In addition, she said parents need to definitely be on board and supportive.
It has to be a win-win arrangement between plastic surgeon, family, parents and the patient getting the surgery, said Walden.
“They should’ve researched the procedures out and be able to take the time off of sports, camps, any type of summer school they may be doing to recover from these procedures so they don’t end up with a complication,” said Walden.
What to do before procedure
And while many associate plastic surgery with vanity, Walden said it’s deeper than that a lot of the time.
“This is not an exercise in vanity,” she said. “A lot of these surgeries help correct a very embarrassing body part, such as enlarged breast on a teenage boy, or prominent ears, or a hooked nose.”
It helps teenagers establish self-esteem and confidence before venturing off on this new leg of their life.
“We have such a visually-oriented society with Facebook, Instagram and TV images that it’s not uncommon for teenagers to want to and be able to change their appearance for the better at that juncture between going off from high school to college,” said Walden.
As for recovery time, it varies by procedure. Still, the general rule is to rest up for five- to seven days.
Tips for recovery
So it’s been a while now since my operation (8 days) and I’ll update you about how it’s been.
Day 1 – Operation day – As I said, it went well, a little towards the end but due to anesthesia. Dr.B was great and really reassured me throughout the process. All went well without any vomiting. Hospital and staff was fantastic. Big thanks to my nurse Josée. Any transitions (to lie down or get up) is very stiff (muscle pain) and causes a lot of pressure.
Day 2 – Sore, to be expected. Tolerable pain still feeling the anesthesia. Very itchy where the incisions are. Transitions displacement still difficult. Can’t wait for shower. I don’t know why (perhaps meds or anesthesia makes you sweat) but my hair is very dirty.
Day 3 – Reaction to Dilaudid (Pain medication). Vomited, very tired, stayed in bed all day, not eating but lots of Gatorade. Still itchy & pressure during transitions
Day 4 – Stomach-wise better, both breasts sore (pressure pain), no pain were incisions were done. Itchy!
Day 5 – Stomach much better (must have gotten rid of anesthesia in my system). Bra and tape causing much itchiness. Still transition issues
Day 6- Saw Dr.Benchetrit post op to take some of the bandages off. He was very pleased with the results. I had no bruising or leaking. The incisions look great. My nipples are in the right place. I still have Steri strips that will eventually fall off on their own. Now I can take a shower but without touching breasts! Yay!!
Day 7 – Tired du to lack of sleep since I’m always sleeping half sitting up and still sore. Tired o being tired and sore!!
Day 8 – So far. Back at work. More pain on left breast than right. Since it’s hot very itchy. Saw Dr.B again and is very pleased with result. Incision very nice. Swelling is going down a bit. Asked if I was please with size and I am. I chose 370 cc’s which a full C size.
Here are some suggestions and comments about having this surgery:
You’ll get sick of lying down on your back. Have lots to watch on tv or dvd’s. Calculate 4 days to doing nothing at home with a mastopexie (lift) with implants.
You won’t be sleeping well so buy yourself specialty foam pillows if you can to make sure you are comfortable and allows you to be partially sitting while sleeping
At the en of all of this, having this surgery is priceless, honestly. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
Make sure that you choose a size that you’re happy with so you don’t regret your choice. The implant trial with the nurse is invaluable.
I’m already seeing the results in my clothes and I’m loving it.
WHATEVER YOU DO, DO NOT OVER DO IT POST SURGERY!
OK people Tmrw is the big day : my surgery and I am sooooo exited, I am nervous only because I have been waiting for almost a year for this surgery but I am really not nervous about going under general anesthesia and also I trust Dr.Benchetrit at 110% because I have seen his work and he is really the “boob Doctor” lol so I know the results are going to be amazing!!!
So I have prepared myself for tmrw at the hospital to bring loose clothes with a zipper, I took off my nail polish on fingers and toes, and you need to have someone to bring you so my driver will be my mom!!! I can’t wait to feel confident again in tops and feel good about my breast because like I have said I am doing this for me to feel better with my breast so this feeling will be Priceless!
You will always have those friends or family members that will tell you don’t do it you don’t need it!!! They don’t know how you feel, they don’t know how your confidence goes down just because of this!
So I will keep u guys updated on how my recovery is going J
Bye for now xoxox
Hello everyone my name is Aurelie and I work for Dr.Benchetrit.
The reason for my blog is to let you know that I am getting breast surgery in 3 days with Dr.B. I want to share my experience before and after the surgery. I will start with the fact that I have lost almost 100 pounds in a year so my breast are really not what they used to be so that’s why I decided to get a breast lift with implants ( mastopexy with gel implants).
My surgery in on June 14th so in 3 days!!! I feel exited, nervous and I cant wait plus I know I am in great hands with Dr.Benchetrit!!!
So I will be posting my little journey of before and after my surgery and hopefully it will help some of the women out there understand better breast surgery and that you do it for you and not for anybody else! J
If ever any of you would like to ask me questions it will be my pleasure to answer them online or call me at the Clinic 514-695-7450.
