Do Men Like Breast Implants?


According to Psychology Today, two psychologists studied the link between financial security and men’s breast size preferences. Nearly 300 men from different socio-economic backgrounds were asked which breast size they found more attractive when viewing a series of animated women with different breast sizes.

The results: Poorer men tended to pick big breasts while those who were wealthier showed a preference for smaller breasts. Evolutionarily speaking, the study even suggests that women’s breast size acts as a “signal of fat reserves, which in turn advertises access to resources.” Err, shall we call them boob-diggers?

World Boob Map Shows Average Breast Size By Country

Well, there you have it – a map put out by German newspaper Bild that purports to show the average breast cup size by country.

So where will you find the largest breasts in the world? Russia, Finland, Sweden and Norway all weigh in at an average “greater than D cup” – though the United States, Venezuela and Columbia all factor close behind, with average D cups.

Meanwhile, the most petite bustlines can be found in Africa and Eastern Asia.

While this likely isn’t the most scientific map (we don’t know if they factored breast augmentations into the average size, though by the looks of it, my guess is they did), it does help give you an idea of which cultures may influence the desire to have a certain breast cup size.

Breast Augmentation Tops Year’s Procedures

The numbers are in for most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in 2012, and breast augmentation has topped the charts!

The Wall Street Journal covered the news in a recent story, Once Banned, Silicone Breast Implants Make A Comeback.

The WSJ is of course talking about the USA market, which banned silicone implants for years amid safety concerns that mostly had to do with leaking implants and patient health.

But the rest of the world has been continuing to buy silicone implants, with saline rarely an option anywhere else.

People often ask me if I think silicone breast implants are safe. The answer is truly different for every woman, and depends on her comfort level with the idea of silicone.

I personally chose saline implants when I made the decision years ago because peace of mind was important to me. I also liked the saline had a lower incidence rate of capsular contracture, the most common potential complication of breast augmentation that results in hardened breasts.

Yet silicone continues to evolve, and today’s offerings are better than ever before. The safety, feel, and potential lifetime of the implants have all vastly improved – and the next time I have to make the choice, I may consider silicone!

If you’re still trying to decide between silicone and saline, be sure to read Chapter 4 of my eBook, The Boob Job Bible: How To Get A Safe, Sexy Breast Augmentation. I make the choice simple, and dependent on the things that are most important to YOU.

Why You Shouldn’t Be Afraid Of A Breast Augmentation

Usually, the one thing holding women back from getting the breast augmentation they’ve always wanted is FEAR.

It’s exceedingly common to be afraid of many things, some of which are:

-the surgery/anesthesia
-pain and recovery
-potential complications
-getting a bad boob job
-needing more surgery down the road

But there’s good news. One factor – the plastic surgeon you choose – can basically wipe that whole slate of fears clean if you make an excellent choice.

That means finding a surgeon who is board-certified, has numerous before and after photos showing his/her beautiful aesthetic skills and abilities, takes the time to give you personal attention and care, listens to what you have to say, as well as your fears and concerns, and operates a first-rate and spotlessly clean facility with a board-certified anesthesiologist and friendly staff.

In fact, if you hire a good surgeon, a breast augmentation is one of the most routine and safest cosmetic surgeries you can have.

The crucial sticking point? You’ve got to do your homework, and pick the right plastic surgeon.

Breast Augmentation: A Reader Speaks Out

Today, I’m excited to feature a guest post by Constance, a reader who has overcome her fears and reservations about surgery, and gone on to have a breast augmentation that she loves. Here’s her story.
My Boob Job: Making The Decision
I had been toying with the idea of getting a breast augmentation for at least 20 years before I finally decided to go for it!
But I didn’t always think I would get a boob job. When I was a teenager, I decided firmly against getting any enhancements – even though I was always self-conscious about my smaller B cup. Then I went to college in California, land of the beautiful bodies.
I continued to think about getting larger breasts. This went on for years, and through two marriages. I always felt less than adequate inside.
But then, I had a huge A-HA moment. I was having lunch with my best friend and an acquaintance of hers. At one point, this woman said to me, “I used to be as flat as you before I got my boob job.”
Well, I decided right then and there that no one was going to call me flat again!
(Why are women so sensitive and take it so much more personally when other women critique their appearance, than when other men do? But that’s a whole other topic…)
Anyway, I finally made the decision to just do it!
I was approaching 40, and had just been through a rough divorce, and wanted to start my new life with a new body. Not only did I want the breast augmentation, I was also interested in getting a tummy tuck. I had had two Caesarian sections for the birth of my daughters, and no amount of sit-ups would tighten my tummy pouch.
Now came the difficult decision of choosing the right doctor. I went with Dr. Christine Stiles and her specialty Mommy Makeover, so I could get a breast augmentation and tummy tuck at the same time. Dr. Stiles is a female plastic surgeon in Frisco, Texas, where I reside. It was really important for me personally to select a woman surgeon, because it made me feel more comfortable and at ease.
I’m thrilled with my results, and only wish I had done it sooner!


Lady Gaga Wants Breast Augmentation


Lady Gaga is lusting for a new accessory, and this time, we’re not talking a fire cracker bra or or meat dress.

The pop star was overheard telling a waitress in New York that she was having a serious case of boob job envy while enjoying dinner with her beau, Luc Carl, reports the Daily Star UK.

“I love your boobs! Are they real? I really want to get implants too, I love fake boobs,” Gaga allegedly told the waitress. But the platinum blonde had some reservations. “I’m not sure how Luc would feel about me getting my boobs made bigger,” added the star.

This actually brings up a great point that readers looking to get a boob job often complain to me about: boyfriends and husbands who aren’t down with the idea, and aren’t supportive. It can be really upsetting when your man doesn’t stand behind a major (and exciting) decision like getting a breast augmentation.

It’s confusing, isn’t it? Here you are, wanting to look your best — and chances are, you probably take good care of yourself — eat well, workout, dress well — as many breast augmentation patients tend to do, because they’re concerned with looking their best. Shouldn’t a man be proud to have a woman who takes care of herself as a partner?

The thing is, breast implants cause any insecurities that a man has to boil to the surface — because many fear that a pair of new boobs is going to be followed by an upgrade in a new man too. You can allay these type of fears with a sit-down chat about how the only that will be changing will be your boobs — not your relationship. Just talking about it could be all the comfort he needs to get on board with the idea.

Other times, a guy can just be worried about your safety. There are boob job horror stories all over the internet, newspapers and television — and many people mistakenly believe it’s a dangerous surgery with risky complications and unattractive results. Nothing could be further from the truth of course if you do all your research and make the right choices, but people don’t know that. If this is the case with your man, let him know that you’ve done all the research, and show him pictures of the kind of results you’re going for. People don’t always realize that boob jobs come in more than just one size and shape — and when he sees that you’ve hired a great surgeon and have a specific final look in mind, he’ll probably relax and maybe even become your cheerleader.

And more rarely, the issue could be that your man is just a boob about boob jobs — and an underlying cause like jealousy or controlling behavior that is reflected in other areas of the relationship too comes to a head. In this case, you’ll want to consider cleaning up or moving past the relationship before you get involved with a breast augmentation — so that you’re in a healthy, positive and happy state of mind before you make such a major decision.

Breast Augmentation Fat Transfer

The thought of swapping out extra fat from your tummy or thighs to your breasts sounds pretty amazing, doesn’t it?

The technique is called breast augmentation fat transfer.

And while it sounds like something out of a sci-fi movie, it’s a technique that more and more plastic surgeons are experimenting with today!

One important thing: This technique is in the experimental phase, so I don’t advise that you try to find a plastic surgeon who will perform this on you right now.

But it’s a super interesting technique that you may be able to safely consider a little further down the road, once they’ve completed more tests to make sure everything is kosher. READ MORE.

Hollywood Hating On Breast Implants

Heidi Montag’s cups are currently being traded for smaller chests like Astrid Berges-Frisbey in LA castings.

AOL just asked me to write a story on boob jobs.

Apparently, there’s quite a bit of backlash going on about breast implants – in of all places, Hollywood.

Yep – we’re talking about the town that practically invented the concept of the eternally perky, full breast.

You can read the full story here.

It brings up a very important point that I get asked a ton about: breast implant size.

As you’ll see from the link, women who choose supersized breast implants are often the unfair target of harsh judgments made by other people. These judgments can even limit the possibilities of things you may want for yourself in life – like certain careers and relationships.

You don’t need to be a rocket scientist to figure out that many people think that extra large breasts = dumbed down floozy.

Now I think that’s totally ridiculous, but that’s unfortunately the world we live in.

So when women ask me what size to go with, I always tell them to make sure they’re picking one that works in all facets of their lives – from the professional to the intimate to the fun.

That DD cup that makes your husband go cross-eyed and drop everything may make you feel like you need to button up to your chin while leading a presentation at work.

And Lord knows you’re not shelling out those thousands just so you can walk around looking like a nun!

So you want to be aware of the image you’re projecting, because most human beings — whether it’s wrong or right — will judge the way you ‘package’ yourself.

There are also added complication risks you need to consider when going for an extra large size. Your skin and tissue needs to be able to support it, and it’s often not pretty what an extra large implant will do to your chest tissue after years of gravity and wear and tear.

Plus, a large rack is HEAVY and can get cumbersome and tiring to carry around. I mention in the story that Sharon Osbourne is removing her DD implants this July – and it’s for exactly this reason. She says they get in her way, and she’s tired of lugging them around at the expense of her back.

With all that said, if you still decide that a supersized implant is for you and you have the confidence to carry it off, then I’m totally in support of you getting what you want and enjoying them!

Just remember that you need to be EXTRA vigilant about hiring a fantastic surgeon, because anyone with anything less than the best skills who implants extra large breasts is usually a recipe for disaster and the dreaded botched boob job.

And as for the chatter in the story from casting directors about breast implants being out of vogue in Hollywood – I say sure – maybe for the next five minutes. 🙂

We’re so familiar with this as women. Pointy toed heels are in, then they’re out. Then they’re on the cover of Vogue again, but not before you already sold your old pair on eBay. Damn it.

The truth is, for all the whining people do about how breast implants are fake and terrible and the cause for every ill of humanity, they walk past women with implants every day, and are none the wiser about it.

The average woman asks for a “full C” when getting implants. And no one can tell unless she shares the secret.

Just some food for thought as you contemplate boob jobs!

And remember – The Boob Job Bible is my full guide to everything you need to know to safely get the beautiful breast augmentation you’ve always dreamed of.

I back it with a bullet-proof 30 day money-back guarantee, always.

Breast Implants Without Anesthesia

The New York Times reported a disturbing trend today: the increase in doctors offering breast augmentation without general anesthesia.

You can read the full story here.

I just read the piece, and I literally dropped everything to put together this potentially life-saving message for you. This is one of the most dangerous games I’ve seen cash-hungry doctors getting away with in this country yet.

The piece features Dr. Robert L. True of Colleyville, Texas as one of more than 100 doctors in the USA who perform breast augmentation under local sedation.

Dr. True is really a gynecologist though. No surprise there. Many non-plastic surgeons are picking up more lucrative work “on the side” since you get paid up front and in full when performing cosmetic surgery, and you don’t have to deal with insurance companies.

Doctors who perform cosmetic surgery on the side often learn how to do the surgery in weekend seminars. Meanwhile, plastic surgeons study breast augmentation for years before they’re allowed to touch a patient all on their own. I can’t tell you how drastic the difference in knowledge and care is between the two camps. It’s literally the difference between taking a weekend course or getting a PHD in a subject.

And I can’t over-emphasize enough how dangerous it is to hire someone who is not a board-certified plastic surgeon to cut into your body with a scalpel.

It’s not worth any amount of savings.

You’ve got one face and one body, not to mention one life – and hiring someone who isn’t qualified to touch you risks all of that.

But I haven’t even shared what Dr. True likes to do with his patients during their breast augmentations.

Dr. True says he actually talks to his patients while they are laying on the table getting sliced up, and even sits them up on the table in a groggy haze so they can take a look at their breasts half way through and choose their size!

Do you have any idea how ‘out of it’ you are when you’ve got all of those narcotics and drugs pumping through your system? And now you’re going to make a decision that will have permanent consequences for your body?

The story doesn’t even touch upon the potential complications a doctor carelessly exposes you to by moving you up and around while operating on your breasts.

I can’t believe a doctor can legally get away with doing this in this country.

There is a tragedy just waiting to happen here. And I don’t want you to be the one who falls susceptible to it.

Heading into your breast augmentation surgery, all implant decisions should already be made. There is no reason to have to pick your size while you’re undergoing the actual surgery.

The only thing your board-certified plastic surgeon should be doing during surgery is concentrating on your safety and the skill of placing the implant properly so that he produces the beautiful results you both agreed on BEFORE the surgery!

I of course go into detail on all the decisions you should make prior to the surgery in The Boob Job Bible.

Take the time to educate yourself and do all your research so that you won’t fall prey to dangerous situations like this one, and so that you can have a safe, gentle experience that produces the gorgeous results that you want.

Please pass this message on to anyone you know considering a breast augmentation so that they’re warned. Let’s all keep one another safe.

How To Protect Yourself From Dangerous Plastic Surgeons

Just a couple days ago, a jury found Plastic Surgeon Dr. Marco Loiacono guilty of professional misconduct in his treatment of a 33 year old breast augmentation patient, Catherine McCormack of Dublin, reports The Irish Times.

The lowdown?

Catherine’s left breast became infected a few days after her breast augmentation at the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery (ACS) clinic in Dublin back in October 2006. When the mom of three went to see the doctor about the situation, she was red, inflamed and – get ready for this – oozing. These are all symptoms of a severe infection, which at that advanced stage can call for immediate hospital admittance, intravenous antibiotics and possibly removal of the implant.

Instead, Dr. Lociacono stitched the wound together, put her on your typical ho-hum antibiotics, and sent Catherine on her way – a response that the surgeon amazingly continued to stand by in court.

Also discussed in court was the fact that Dr. Lociacono didn’t see Catherine for a whole 20 days after her initial surgery; his defense is that nurses saw her in the days following her surgery.

Catherine ultimately had to have her left breast removed, leaving her disfigured and ill with a significant recovery from the nasty infection.

Dr. Lociacono moved and continued to perform cosmetic surgeries in Brazil and Italy. Nice, huh?

Now this all brings up a very important point that I discuss in depth in my eBook, The Boob Job Bible: 10 Steps To A Sexy, Safe Breast Augmentation. YOU need to “interview” any plastic surgeon you consult with to make sure he’s going to be your number one advocate, and that you’ll be safe and completely cared for under his guidance.

While there are reckless and poor plastic surgeons out there, the one good piece of news is that they’re pretty easy to pick out if you know what to look for.

Just a couple out of several points my eBook addresses that could have prevented this situation:

1. At your consultation, ALWAYS ask who will be seeing you for your follow up appointments right after surgery. Anyone other than the surgeon performing the breast augmentation on you is unacceptable, and you should never hire someone who gives you less than that.

2. While infections are rare, the signs to look for: Redness, skin that feels “hot” and any kind of oozing. If you so much as SUSPECT an infection, get in to see your plastic surgeon immediately. Not his nurse, not a phone call – him personally. If he finds that you DO have an infection, you’ll want to ask if it’s necessary to make a hospital trip for intravenous antibiotics and whether there is a risk that you may need to remove the implant. Infections are nothing to mess with. And you most certainly don’t hang out with one for over 20 days, with no further treatment.

And this is the kind of story that scares women straight out of ever getting a boob job.

But if you do your homework, ask the right questions, and hire a great board-certified plastic surgeon – you can protect yourself from these kinds of craptastic doctors who give the whole industry a bad name.

America’s Most Expensive NYE’s Package Includes Boobs


You know how every once in awhile, a dying restaurant comes out with an outrageous 10 pound burger or some other such instant artery-clogging dish in order to get free publicity and intrigued customers to come through the door?

It looks like desperate plastic surgeons are turning to the same measure.

New York Park Avenue plastic surgeon Dr. Stephen Greenberg is offering the ultimate “new you” for New Year’s: Three tables at a New Year’s Eve Lady Gaga and John Legend concert, round-trip first class tickets from NYC to Miami with a choice of 5 star penthouse rooms in South Beach for a month with a chauffeured Rolls Royce, AND a pair of new breasts – as reported by Asian News International.

The boob job comes with a 24-hour care nurse and unlimited spa treatments.

The cost for all of the above?

A cool $100K.

While some (wealthy) women prefer their plastic surgery to come in pampered packages, you can’t lose sight of the fact that a breast augmentation is a serious surgery that you have to make sure you REALLY want before you even consider going there.

It’s not like a pretty dress you buy in the store; you can’t just take it off if you find that it doesn’t “fit” you quite right.

So while anyone can check out a concert, penthouse suite and ride in a Rolls Royce convertible (um, sign me up for that one!), not everyone is a candidate for breast augmentation.

If you know exactly what you want, what the risks are, what the recovery entails, and have done all your research on the best implant fit for you…then knock yourself out.

But if you none of the above applies to you, you could end up not only very disappointed – but with a bad boob job to boot.

Lesson: Do your homework first. Get beautiful boobs second.

"Every Day" Women Get Breast Implants Too!

I was having lunch with a girl friend recently when she told me that she had just been asked to be a bridesmaid at her cousin’s Bermuda wedding.

But here’s the good part. Her cousin managed to pick out dresses in the kind of loud fucshia floral print you would wear as a costume on Halloween if you were going as an 80’s bridesmaid. And – according to my girl friend – the strapless style makes her look “flatter than a panini sandwich.” Her words.

So we had a breast-enhancing brainstorming session that included everything from Victoria’s Secret Very Sexy Convertible Bras to cleavage cupcakes and bronzing in between her breasts to trick the eye into seeing more depth there. If only men knew!

And then my girl friend told me – “You’re so LUCKY – you’re just naturally blessed!”

Um, not quite..

I broke the news that I wasn’t always a D cup diva. Actually, I’m a former 34B.

“No way! But those don’t look like STRIPPER T-TS!” she shrieked a little too loudly for an intimately packed restaurant in midtown at 1pm.

No, these babies aren’t stripper boobs. And far less augmentations than you think actually are.

So many women out there want enhancement, but what holds them back is the fear that they’ll end up looking like a floozy cartoon pinup. The kind that men don’t take seriously.

The truth is, the MAJORITY of breast augmentations today are had by every day women. I’m talking teachers, lawyers, nurses, real estate agents – stay-at-home Moms.

You just don’t notice the more subtle versions because they don’t call out for your ATTENTION.

The good news: you can have control over the kind of breast augmentation you get, including a boob job that subtly fills out your clothing and makes you feel and look incredibly sexy without raising the eyebrows of co-workers, your hair stylist or your mother-in-law.

But there’s a BIG CATCH: You need to know WHO to hire as your plastic surgeon, HOW to figure out what the perfect size is for your frame, and EXACTLY WHAT to ask for.

Without these ESSENTIAL steps, you could risk ending up with the kind of supersized big breasts that are keeping you from taking the plunge in the first place.

To learn how to get the perfect sized breast augmentation for you, be sure to read Chapter 3 of my eBook, The Boob Job Bible; 10 Steps To A Sexy, Safe Breast Augmentation.

If you have NO CLUE what size you want to be, I give you a step-by-step guide on how to figure out it and get it right – the first time!

And hey – you might decide that bigger IS better. Just remember that the bigger the implant, the higher the complication risk. Read Chapter 7 to learn how to dramatically reduce your complication risks, as well as what special things you need to consider if you do go bigger.

Unfortunately, I can’t help with ugly bridesmaid dresses..

What No One Tells You About Getting A Breast Augmentation

So I was at the gynecologist today getting my yearly women’s wellness exam (fun times!), when my doctor brought up the subject of breast augmentation in a most interesting way.

(Note: She of course does this while my hands are awkwardly up over my head and it feels like she’s kneading dough out of my poor breasts.)

“I only see about 25% of boob jobs that are good, and yours is one of them. I don’t care for 75% of the work I see.”


Now of course I had to jump on that. What’s so wrong with the whopping 75% of boob jobs she doesn’t like?

“They just don’t look or feel right. It’s the wrong type of implant for the woman. The size or shape is wrong, or it’s just not placed right. It doesn’t feel womanly. It feels fake.”

This brings up a real interesting point that I never see addressed in breast augmentation books, articles or websites.

They always tell you to pick a board certified plastic surgeon.

But what they DON’T tell you is that just picking a board certified plastic surgeon doesn’t guarantee you’ll have a good result!

Let me give you a parallel. If you’re hiring a lawyer, you of course want to hire someone who has their law degree and all the proper credentials. But that doesn’t necessarily mean that everyone with a law degree is a GOOD lawyer.

Likewise, when you’re hiring a plastic surgeon, you want to choose from doctors who have the most basic requirement: board certification. But that doesn’t mean that ANY plastic surgeon with board certification is automatically a GOOD plastic surgeon.

This was evidenced by my gynecologist’s next question. “Who is your plastic surgeon? He’s GOOD.”

There’s a bunch of other things you have to look for to make sure you’re hiring a GOOD plastic surgeon.

One of the most important things to research is the doctor’s WORK. Lawyers can be judged by how many cases they win. And plastic surgeons can be judged by their before and after photos.

So say you’re considering a certain plastic surgeon who is board certified and who your girl friend has been to. You need to be on the doctor’s website, checking out every before and after shot posted to make sure the work looks like the type of breast augmentation you want for YOURSELF.

Plastic surgeons have different styles. You need to find a style that suits YOU and YOUR BODY.

If there are only a few photos on the site, ask to see the doctor’s complete patient photo book. Every GOOD plastic surgeon keeps one in the office.

If the doctor doesn’t have one or is reluctant to show you it for whatever reason, BIG RED FLAG. RUN!

If you want to make sure a plastic surgeon is certified with the right board, you can download my FREE report – 5 Things Every Woman Should Know Before Getting A Breast Augmentation. It tells you exactly how to make sure a plastic surgeon is properly certified with all the right credentials. Get it for free at

And if you’re looking for a step-by-step guide on how to choose a GOOD plastic surgeon who will give you the gorgeous breast augmentation you’ve always wanted, be sure to read Chapter 1 of my eBook, The Boob Job Bible: 10 Steps To A Sexy, Safe Breast Augmentation.

I tell you exactly what to look for in before and after photos as well as the checklist of things every GOOD plastic surgeon will have.

Remember, the plastic surgeon you choose has the BIGGEST influence on the kind of boob job you’ll end up with.

There’s a lot of both BEAUTIFUL and BAD boob jobs floating around out there, and it almost ALWAYS comes down to the plastic surgeon who put them in.

Choose your plastic surgeon wisely and carefully, or else risk ending up in that bottom 75%.

The Before & After Photo Obsession

Check out the before and after photos of Heidi Montag’s breast augmentation.
Pretty amazing, isn’t it?

Now regardless of whether you think she looks cuter before or after, one thing is for sure: us ladies LOVE studying before and after pictures! Men do too, but I think most women sit and critique for much longer.

I’m trying to figure out why that is. Is it because we enjoy seeing the “potential” for more aesthetically pleasing change in someone? Are we looking for “ideas” for ourselves? Are we just BORED?

I’d love to hear what you think.

Oh, and methinks that the boobs aren’t the ONLY thing that has changed for Ms. Montag..check out the subtle transformation of the nose and lips too!

The Boob Job Bible


Hasn’t every woman at some point wondered what it would be like to have a boob job?

An augmentation. A lift. Or maybe a (gasp!) reduction.

Boobs are so much a part of being a woman that it’s hard to NOT think about them, isn’t it?

Well, after years of THINKING about it – I finally took the plunge.

I got a boob job!

Best gift I’ve given myself. EVER! It’s like a TRANSFORMATION.

For the curious, these are the three most surprising facts I learned during my years of research:
-Breast implants aren’t lifetime devices. Manufacturers say those babies only last about 10-15 years. Have some women out there kept them longer? Definitely. But it’s a surgery you have to be prepared to repeat down the road if you get one. Maybe even multiple times.

-There’s two kinds of implants: saline (water) and silicone. But even the saline implant has a silicone rubber shell. So either way, you’re putting silicone inside of you.

-Your new boobs can take anywhere from 6 weeks to about six months to settle down! They start out “high” up on your chest because your muscles tighten in response to the surgery. Once the boobs “drop,” they look more naturally shaped. The dropping process sometimes even makes you gain more cup size since your muscles settle their grip on your implants. So if you want your new girls to look fab for a particular event or day, plan FAR ahead in advance!

For the ladies out there who are more curious (you did find your way to this blog didn’t you?) and maybe even think they may take the plunge one day, here’s everything you need to know.
