(NEW YORK) — Most women who undergo breast enhancement surgery do so to feel better about themselves.
One of the fringe benefits, according to a survey conducted by RealSelf.com, is that many women with implants or breast lifts also enjoy better sex lives.
In fact, a third of the participants in the RealSelf.com poll says their overall sex life satisfaction has increased since their surgeries.
Just over six in ten women reported having sex more often since their breast enhancements, while only seven percent admitted that they were having sex less frequently.
In rating their overall sex-life satisfaction on a scale of one to ten, with ten being the highest, the average rating before the procedure was 6.07. That jumped to 8.13 after the implants or breast lifts.
Overall, 75 percent of women in the RealSelf.com poll who had breast implants at an average cost of $6,600 said the procedure was “worth it,” while 80 percent of those who spent an average of $10,000 for lifts were similarly satisfied.
