Reading the above title one probably expects to read that once again breast augmentation is on the rise. However from 2010-2014 the number of breast augs has actually declined about 3% while implant REMOVAL actually rose 10%. In 2014 just under 24,000 women had their implants removed.
One reason may be due to the fact we put an increased emphases on fitness and frankly big “boobs” get in the way. Also large implants can cause neck, back and shoulder pain just like naturally large breasts. As implants age they can break down and many women do not want to spend thousands of dollars to have them replaced.
