Monster Mammaries: Friend or Foe?

Friend or Foe

Friend or FoeThe butt may be having its moment, but nothing can top the mad love we have for boobs. Whether you want to upgrade your natural assets so that they fit perfectly within the demure dimensions of a champagne glass or you prefer to supersize your breasts, there’s no shortage of implants to choose from. At this very moment, lab scientists are hard at work, perfecting the next generation of implants to meet our ravenous demand for beautiful breasts.

Breasts, the Other National Pastime

If you’re in the market for a breast augmentation, you’re in good company. By day’s end, more than five hundred women in this great nation will have walked out of their plastic surgeons’ offices with a song in their heart and a surgical bra supporting their newly enhanced breasts. But slow your roll, Dolly Parton. Don’t go signing up for those DDs just yet.

For some women, big breast implants may be just what the doctor ordered. However, not everyone is a candidate for huge implants. The implant size that works best depends upon several factors, including physical frame and lifestyle. Women with a narrow chest should avoid ginormous implants. Similarly, women who lead an active lifestyle usually don’t want huge knockers that could get in the way.

Boobie Buyer Beware

Huge breast implants also come with a higher risk of complication or displacement. Because more space is needed for the implants, dissection of natural tissue is extensive. Bigger implants require the skin to stretch more, making rippling more likely. The bigger the implant, the more prone it is to move downward or outward, away from its original placement.

Breast implants aren’t all about going big or going home. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon to make sure you don’t regret your monster mammaries.
