DANILLA E, Stefan et al. Factors that affect the quality of life of patients with breast augmentation surgery: A cohort study. Rev Chil Cir [online]. 2017, vol.69, n.2, pp.110-117. ISSN 0718-4026.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1016/j.rchic.2016.09.003.

Introduction: Breast-Q® instrument has been used for measuring the quality of life of patients undergoing breast augmentation surgery. The factors that determine the improvement in the quality of life of these patients are unknown. The aim of this work is to identify the determinant factors of improvement in the quality of life in patients undergoing breast augmentation. Materials and methods: A prospective cohort of 52 patients undergoing breast augmentation was studied. Sociodemographic features, anthropometric measurements, variables related to surgery were studied and the Breast-Q® instrument was applied. For statistical analysis it was used descriptive statistics and linear and logistic regression models. Results: We found improvement in the quality of life, globally (P < .00001) and in all domains except "physical symptoms’ domain. Among the determining factors, there was a positive correlation between the prosthesis volume and improvement in quality of life globally (P = .032) and in the domains "self-image and self-esteem" (P = .01) and "sexual life" (P = .001). Conclusion: Breast augmentation surgery significantly increases the quality of life measured by the Breast-Q® instrument. The determinant factors of improvement in quality of life, would be directly related to the implants volume.
