According to a recent survey conducted by the largest provider of cosmetic surgery in Britain, demand for breast augmentation is high, but the trend is toward smaller, more natural looking breasts. The survey, taken among patients who had received breast augmentations themselves, showed not only that women were selecting smaller breasts, but expressed a strong distaste for large, artificial-looking breasts. According to the survey, over 75 % of women seeking breast augmentation wanted to go up 1 to 2 cup sizes, with the majority requesting a C-cup. This is significantly down from a late 1990s survey which recorded that 72 % of women wanted to increase their breast size by 2 or more cup sizes (although C cup was still the most requested size).
Official statistics collected by organizations like the American Society of Plastic Surgeons don't include figures for how large women's breasts were both before and after surgery, but these statistics are reflective of other surveys, such as InTouch Weekly's "Best Breasts" list, which had as many B-cup celebrities as D-cup celebrities, with the majority being C-cup.
When asked why they desire smaller implants, the majority of patients expressed a desire to "look natural" and "keep proportion." According to the director of the survey, "Contrary to popular belief, most cosmetic surgery patients want to fit in--not stand out."
