What makes a breast look beautiful?

by Hamawy, Adam

UK plastic surgeon Patrick Mallucci recently outlined what exactly made a breast look beautiful. He did this by analyzing 100 models that appeared in the British tabloid The Sun and noting some common features (see article: The Sun- UK) . He said, ” the more breasts deviate from these measures the less attractive they are regardless of size.” He identified three key factors:

  1. The lower portion of the breast is 10% fuller below the nipples than above.
  2. The breast should have a tear drop shape with a straight sloping upper pole and a full round lower pole.
  3. The nipples are angled up 20 degrees

This is not the first study to try to define what makes a perfect breast and surely won’t be the last. Studies looking at every angle, measuring ideal nipple location and optimal breast volume in relation to the rest of the body have been published in scientific journals since as early as 1955. These measures can be used as guides for plastic surgeons when performing all types of breast procedures whether they are NJ breast augmentations, breast lift, breast reductions or breast reconstruction after cancer.

Practice Update Regarding COVID-19

At Princeton Plastic Surgeons, the health and well-being of our patients, employees and our community is our top priority. We understand the concern and uncertainty you may be experiencing surrounding the coronavirus (COVID-19) and we are committed to being responsive to the needs of our patients as the situation evolves.

In consideration of the risk that Covid-19 poses to the community at large our Office and Medspa are temporarily closed. This is also in accordance with the new CMS recommendation that all elective surgeries, non-essential medical, surgical and dental procedures be delayed during this outbreak. Events are progressing rapidly and the viral pandemic is projected to seriously impact many Americans and others around the world. We must all do what is necessary to reduce the risk of virus transmission and conserve needed medical supplies. We of course are still available for urgent or emergent care.

We are open for virtual consultations or phone consultations for those who wish to have a consultation during this time at 609-301-0760. Rest assured, the closure is preventative and not due to an exposure within our office community or staff. There will be a staff member who can respond to patients who have had surgery, reschedule appointments, and answer phone calls.

Best wishes for your continued health and a prompt end to this crisis.
