Cities with Highest Breast Implant Popularity, Breast Implant Helpline

Written by lisaspitzer on . Posted in Dow Corning Breast Implant Stories and Sharing

Breast Implant Helpline and breast Implant Lawyers are helping women with Breast Implant Claims including the MDL-926, Dow Corning Trust Class Action and other manufacturers. We were curious as to the popularity of Breast Implants in the U.S and  found the following statistics. According to research:

Salt Lake City Leads Nation in Breast Implant Popularity for Breast implants

Salt Lake City has the highest interest in breast implants in the nation, according to new RealSelf data. Columbia, South Carolina has the least.

Surprised by the women of Salt Lake City? So were we. Enhanced breasts seem unusual in a conservative city that can pack an arena to watch "clean comics" do standup.

To measure the interest in breast implants, and other cosmetic procedures, our team looked at millions of searches on RealSelf.com by geographic location. This reveals what's trending and trailing for every major city and region.Breast implant research is most intense in Salt Lake City and Fresno

The top 5 cities interested in breast implants are:

  • Salt Lake City (+74% vs. National Average)
  • Fresno, CA (+63%)
  • Honolulu, HI (+54%)
  • Oklahoma City (+50%)
  • Mobile, AL (+34%)

Where are women less interested in bust enhancement? Much of the East shows fewer searches for breast implants. Led by Columbia, South Carolina (-42% vs. National Average), Westchester/Fairfield Counties (-35%), Baltimore (-30%), Boston (-27%) and Washington, DC (-26%).

FDA and Breast Implants

In January 2011, The U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) advised that women who had received breast implants should notify their doctors of any changes in their breasts because of a possible association with a rare type of lymphoma. In breast implant patients, ALCL has occurred in the scar capsule adjacent to the implant. The Food and Drug Administration has approved a new silicone-gel breast implant from Sientra, making it the third company to market the controversial products in the U.S.

Symptoms of breast implant lymphoma include:

  • Pain
  • Lumps
  • Swelling
  • Asymmetry that developed after their initial surgical sites were fully healed
