Aesthetic surgery can be performed on any part of the body. The procedure is performed by an aesthetic plastic surgeon. Aesthetic surgery for breasts has been practiced for many years for reduction, enhancement, and mastopexy. Breast aesthetic surgery is of three types: augmentation, reduction, and reconstruction.

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is performed to enhance the appearance and size of a woman's breasts. It is done with implants that can be placed over or under the pectoralis chest muscle. A breast implant is typically a silicone shell filled with either saline or silicone gel. Breast reduction is known as reduction mammoplasty. The procedure involves the removal of excess skin, fat, and glandular tissue. With this type of surgery, scarring can be extensive; possible side effects include pain and lumpiness from scar tissue and the inability to breastfeed. Breast reconstruction seeks to recreate breasts with the desired appearance and volume. This can be done with either implant or with a woman's own tissue.

The American society for aesthetic plastic surgery estimates that, for the year 2017, there was a 7.7% increase in the total number of breast aesthetic surgical procedures over 2016, with almost 2.1 million surgical procedures performed in 2017.

Market Dynamics

The major factors driving the breast aesthetic surgery market include – growing demand of retaining youthfulness amongst women and increasing desire to look fit and attractive with growing age, rise in prevalence of breast cancer, and technological factors such as the development of advanced materials such as silicone implants.

According to World Health Organization (WHO), breast cancer is the second most commonly diagnosed cancer with an estimated amount of 1.8 million cases in 2018, nearly 1 in 8 women develop invasive breast cancer, accounting to about 12.4% of cases of breast cancer globally. This has resulted in an increase in the number of mastectomy and lumpectomy procedures that further boosts demand for implants and breast reconstruction surgeries. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, out of nearly 1.8 million cosmetic surgical procedures performed in 2017, breast augmentation has the highest number with 300,378 procedures.

The high cost of surgeries, lack of skilled personnel to perform procedures, lack of affinity to undergo procedures, and adverse side effects after the surgeries are hindering the growth of breast aesthetic surgery market.
