What percentage of women have breast implants?

Lindsey received her breast implants more than 50 years ago, but national statistics on the procedure have only been collected on a yearly basis since the late 1990s. And those statistics only measure the number of procedures that take place; they say nothing about the women receiving those implants, which makes an estimate here all the more shaky. Still, though, I estimate that almost 4 percent of women in America, or one in every 26, has breast implants.
