With the breast augmentation gaining momentum a few years back, women were opting for large breast implants. However, the scenario has changed and women are looking for more natural results with breasts that look less obviously enhanced. This is leading to the trend of 3D imaging for breast augmentation. 3D imaging provides a higher chance of offering results as per the plan. This is also helping women to choose the implant size that results in the natural looking breast augmentation. Lifestyle is the most important factor in a decision to undergo a cosmetic surgery. Hence, women are seeking breast implants to balance the figure than to dominate their appearance.
To balance the active lifestyle, the majority of women prefer smaller implants that can offer more fit and athletic look. The decrease in the procedure cost is also driving the global breast implants market. The cost reduction is taking place owing to the increasing number of cosmetic clinics and growing competition among plastic surgeons. Advancement in technology is also resulting in improved design, fill volumes and construction, accelerating the development of new devices that leads to less wrinkling and rippling. However, the high cost of breast augmentation including tests and post-surgery medications are hampering the growth of the market worldwide. Meanwhile, new techniques including fat transfer and fat grafting that uses own tissue resulting in the more natural look are likely to fuel the growth of the global market for breast implants.
