The demand for cosmetic surgeries and aesthetics implants is increasing at a fast pace.

According to reports from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), up to 313,735 breast augmentation procedures were performed in 2018, a 4 percent surge from 2017.
A recent market research report from Fortune Business Insights estimates that the global breast implants market size – which was 2.6 billion in 2018 – will account for USD 4.3 Billion by 2026, exhibiting a CAGR of 6.7% during the forecast period, 2019-2026. The report is titled “Breast Implants Market Size, Share & Industry Analysis, By Product (Breast Implants, Tissue Expanders), By Material (Silicone, Saline), By Procedure (Breast Augmentation, Breast Reconstruction), By End User (Hospitals, Specialty Clinics) and Regional Forecast, 2019-2026”.
Breast augmentation in Manhattan is a popular cosmetic surgical procedure that helps women boost their physical appearance, confidence and self-esteem by enhancing the size and shape of the breasts. Performed using breast implants, this is an ideal option for women who want fuller breasts, to correct breasts that differ in size and shape, or to restore breast volume and firmness lost due to excessive weight loss, pregnancy, aging, or other reasons. Women can choose from various types of breast implants such as saline, silicone, gummy bear, and IDEAL. These implants come in different sizes and shapes such as tear-drop, or round and with textured and smooth surfaces to fit any woman’s breasts and body type. Manhattan plastic surgeons also provide composite breast augmentation, a procedure that involves using implants along with autologous fat transfer. It creates a natural-appearing cleavage and also provides a softer and more natural look and feel.
Breast implant surgery can be done for a reconstructive purpose or for augmentation purpose. Reconstructive purposes include restoring the breast volume post-weight reduction or pregnancy, and after a mastectomy. The goal of breast augmentation is to enhance the aesthetic appearance of the body – to enhance breast volume and shape, correct asymmetry, and reshape the bust line.
Besides the growing demand for breast cosmetic procedures to enhance the breast appearance, symmetry, and proportion, the market research report notes that technological advancements have revolutionized the breast implants market. It identifies the factors driving the global breast implants market as:
- Emergence of gummy bear breast implants
- Rapid adoption of minimally invasive breast augmentation procedures
- Launch of new products and technological advancements
- Medical tourism
According to the report, advancements in gummy bear breast implants and emergence of minimally-invasive under-the-muscle breast enlargement are likely to fuel demand for breast implants. The rising popularity of gummy bear breast implants will be one of the critical trends of the market. Gummy bear implants are highly cohesive silicone gel implants, made of high-strength silicone gel. These form-stable implants maintain their shape even when cut in half. They are less likely to wrinkle, fold, or ripple.
The breast implants market growth is primarily driven by the increase in the number of breast surgeries across the world. The highest numbers of surgeries are performed in the United States, Brazil and Mexico. In many countries like Japan and China, women’s desire to attain a celebrity look is the primary reason for the increase in demand for breast implant surgery.
