Personality characteristics of women seeking breast augmentation. Comparison to small-busted and average-busted controls.
Journal Article (Journal Article)
The results of a study, contrasting 28 women seeking cosmetic breast augmentation with 28 small-busted control women and 28 average-busted controls, suggest the average woman desiring surgical breast augmentation is as psychologically stable as other women. She differs from other women only in limited areas--primarily in her negative evaluation of her breasts and her greater emphasis on dress and physical attractiveness.
