What’s the average Irish breast size? What’s the most popular breast implant size and shape among Irish women? We ran the numbers and uncovered the latest trends in Irish breast procedures. Here are the highlights.

Average Breast Size

Research has shown that at 34C on average, the Irish have the 3rd largest breast size in the world!

Breast Reductions Are Up 113%!

While breast augmentations overall continue to rise, the number of women opting for breast reduction procedures has skyrocketed, increasing 113% in just one year.

The Average Requested Breast Size is Getting Smaller

For those women who are opting to go bigger, the average desired cup size has dropped two years in a row, from DD in 2013, to D in 2014 to C in 2015.

Teardrop Beats Round

When it comes to implants, there are different shapes as well as different sizes. 75% of women now opt for the more natural-looking teardrop shape over the round shape.

Average Recovery Times Are Falling

While everybody is different, recovery times for breast procedures continue to fall. In the past, women may have had to expect to take weeks off work. Today, most women are back at work within just 5 – 7 working days.
