One of the most tantalizing attributes of the female anatomy is the breast. The boobies. The fun-bags. The jugs. Forever immortalized along a spectrum from much revered ancient art to modern day nudie magazines. Large, symmetrical breasts are one of the indicators of pure femininity.
Scientists have suggested that the visual importance of the female body owes to indications that the woman could easily care for a child. In an evolutionary sense, perfectly sized, symmetrical breasts indicate (to a male) the female with the best capacity to feed and rear a child. But in the modern world we’re kind of past that, and physical presentation is probably more informed by what we see in the media than by actual genetic fitness.
However, growing up in any of the countries on this list as a flat-chested young girl can lead to mockery and bullying due to not fitting the cookie-cutter female form, and many women opt for elective surgery to “improve” their figure and self-esteem. The following countries have the most cases per year of breast augmentation, and it should not be surprising that these countries are among the most westernized and image-centric in the world.
9 United Kingdom
1 United States
According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, 2013 saw the most radical amounts of money spent on plastic surgery in the US since the 2008 housing collapse. Americans have had five years to stabilize their bank accounts and the first thing on their list to-do with that disposable income is to blow up dem boobies!! In fact, 313,700 procedures were performed in the states in 2013. And of course the US is number one on this list. This is the country that is singularly obsessed with looks. This is the country where all little girls are raised on Barbie and the next step in societal training on what is acceptable looks-wise is celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Christina Hendricks, Scarlet Johansson, and Jessica Simpson. Women in the US are striving to look like onscreen icons with unusual and nearly unattainable bodies, so essentially, the media is creating a customer base that is incredibly devoted to looking “perfect”.
