Women have been provided with more options to choose from, knowledge to obtain on each type of surgery, and factors to consider. Common reasons for women in NJ between the ages of 18-22 is they are looking to create a fuller, curvier appearance to boost their self-esteem. Women in their mid-twenties to thirties (generally after a pregnancy or other life change), begin to notice their breasts are no longer as perky or shapely as they once were.
