Published: February 2024


Over time, the growing desire for prolonged youthfulness, media influence, technological interventions, and the hype fueled by certain beauticians and medical practitioners has contributed to the surge in the demand for breast aesthetic solutions. We analyzed around 30 companies that are engaged in offering breast implants and breast lifting / reconstruction devices for various breast aesthetic procedures. In this article, discover 10 top breast implant companies and their capabilities in this industry.


According to a study conducted by the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS), over 12 million invasive aesthetic procedures and 17 million non-invasive aesthetic procedures have been performed in 2021, worldwide. It is worth highlighting that nearly 90% of the industry clientele are women, however, it is interesting to note that these aesthetic procedures are also gaining popularity among men. Another study revealed that the ratio of male to female customers is anticipated to be around 35% to 65%, by 2040. Furthermore, procedures, such as body contouring, laser hair removal, breast implants and gluteal implants have shown effects that last for over a decade.

In the breast surgery procedure, the implants are placed either under or over the pectoral muscle (chest muscle). Breast implants can be majorly categorized into two categories, namely saline-filled breast implants and silicone-filled breast implants. The difference between the two is in terms of the type of solution filled and different age groups for which implants can be used. Saline and silicone breast implants are the most widely used materials. In addition, implants are also available in different shapes and textures. It involves treatments that are used to improve the appearance of the breasts. The patients can either increase or decrease the size of their breasts. The procedure typically requires general anesthesia for easy operation. The effects of the treatment can last for approximately 20 years. However, the probability of implant rupture increases by 1% each year. Currently, many breast implant companies are focusing on meeting the rise in demand for breast implants. The global breast implants market is estimated to be around $19.2 billion in 2023 and is likely to grow at a CAGR of 9.6%, offering significant opportunities for breast implant companies.

In recent years, several factors have contributed towards transforming the position of breast implant companies. The increasing focus of society on the definition of beauty standards as well as physical appearance have evolved contributing to the popularity of these procedures. It is worth mentioning that the rising adoption of these solutions has resulted in significant uplift in the investment activity in this sector. Breast implantation is a complex surgical procedure performed by plastic surgeons for breast enhancement and augmentation. It is interesting to note that approximately 300,000 people have breast augmentation / breast reconstruction surgery in the US every year. These implants are also used for restoring the shape of breasts in affected breast cancer patients. As per National Breast Cancer Foundation, 1 in 8 women in US is likely to be diagnosed with breast cancer during her timeline. The increased awareness amongst the patient population is creating the space for breast implant companies within the broader medical aesthetics market.
