Psychosocial effects of cosmetic augmentation mammaplasty.
In a follow-up study, 19 small-busted women who had received a cosmetic augmentation mammaplasty were contrasted with 20 small-busted control wornen and 19 average-busted control women. The augmented women showed much greater happiness with their breast, an improved body image, and more daring and revealing dress. Basic personality traits, self-concept, and the frequency of various activities were unchanged.
