Are You a Good Candidate for Breast Reduction Surgery?

While breast augmentation aims to increase the bust size, the goal of breast reduction surgery is the total opposite.  This procedure typically involves extensive incisions to remove a certain amount of tissue, fats, and skin, which in turn can lessen the size of the female chest.
Breast reduction surgery is particularly ideal if you are suffering from chronic back pain, limited movement because of the extra weight of your bust, non-healing irritation in the cleavage and along the crease, and shoulder strain, just to name a few.  However, you may also have the procedure even without these symptoms if you like to improve your figure.
But as with any major surgery, you must be in good health as it requires several weeks of recovery.  It simply means that you must not be suffering from serious medical conditions that may delay your recovery or result to undue risks.
You are not a good candidate particularly if you have wound healing disorders, diabetes, heart problems, and kidney disorders.  As much as possible, these conditions should be treated first or at least “controlled” before you undergo any surgery, particularly if it involves extensive incisions.
You should also think twice of having breast reduction surgery if you have a history of irregular mammograms and undiagnosed lumps in the breasts.
Another important requirement is to be in normal weight.  You should remember that if you are obese or are experiencing significant weight changes, the result of surgery may be reversed and/or you may end up with a deflated-looking, sagging bust.  While repeating the procedure is possible, doing so will result to more scarring and higher risk of asymmetrical appearance.
Meanwhile, smokers in general are not a good candidate for any cosmetic surgery as they are very prone to gangrene (manifested by purplish color which doesn’t seem like common bruises) and delayed healing.  Because the nicotine stiffens the blood vessels, the oxygen-rich blood finds it hard to reach the wound.
As with any plastic surgery, you will undergo a lengthy consultation with your doctor so he can determine if your expectations and goals are realistic.  You should remember that breast reduction cannot change the fundamental shape of your bust, and the result will only be a smaller version of your breasts.
You should also accept the fact that scarring is just one of the tradeoffs of having breast surgery.  These are the other things you also have to consider: risk of asymmetrical appearance, puckery skin, infection, and delayed healing; however, these can be minimized or even avoided if you will choose a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Miley Cyrus Denies Breast Augmentation Rumors

Former Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus has denied rumors of breast augmentation surgery after she was seen wearing a plunging neckline dress during a red carpet event. 
To disprove the rumors, she Tweeted: “Thank you for the compliment, but these babies are all mine,” adding that people should “realize that you don’t have to be fake to be beautiful.”
The 19-year old actress-singer also said that she her body is still maturing so there is nothing surprising about her seemingly larger breasts.  Her explanation sounds convincing since her breasts do not appear unnaturally big given that she is not petite, and perhaps her dress just created an “optical illusion” of a larger bust size.
And because of the plunging neckline dress she was wearing, it is not surprising that her cleavage looked more defined.  In fact, one may surmise that if it wasn’t for the low-cut design, her breasts wouldn’t appear as big as they were.
Meanwhile, Cyrus was irked by the comments of three “experts” hired by Star Magazine (via RadarOnline) who said that “there’s a strong indication that the young actress has gone under the knife to achieve her voluptuous look” at the CNN Heroes: All-Star Tribute.
One of the cosmetic surgeons added that the “outline of the breast implants are visible in the lower portion of her breasts,” adding that it is impossible to have a significant increase in bust size, even with large weight gain, without having breast surgery.
Whether her new voluptuous look is a product of breast augmentation surgery or just because of her low-cut dress, she looked stunning during the event.  That’s a fact which is hard to deny.

JWoww of Jersey Shore Denies Having Plastic Surgery

Despite the growing number of plastic surgery patients in the US, many of them are still denying the procedure and claim that their beauty is on their genes—and not because of the skillful hands of their cosmetic surgeons. 

Jersey Shore’s JWoww, whose real name is Jennie Farley, has been rumored to have undergone “facial plastic surgery.”  However, the reality TV star is adamant that she is “all natural from the neck up and even said during an interview with Wendy Williams Show that she is willing to submit herself to facial recognition test.

While JWoww has previously admitted that she have had breast augmentation surgery, she denied rumors of her having cheek and chin implant surgery, collagen injection to augment her lips, and “nose job.”

JWoww said that losing 15 lbs. probably changed the way her face looks, and also the projection of her nose.  

Over the past couple of months, there have been rumors of JWoww’s alleged facial plastic surgery because of her seemingly tighter skin and plumper lips, which some showbiz writers claim to be the works of collagen injection or implants.

The rumors of her alleged plastic surgery started after the August 4 season premiere of Jersey Shore as fans noticed that her chin and nose look thinner while her cheeks are somewhat more prominent.

While the brunette beauty claims that she did not have any plastic surgery on her face, she was quoted saying that she is open to the idea of having “touch-ups” such as Botox injection in case that aging starts to manifest on her face. 

“May be I’ll get Botox by the time I’m 30”, she said during her TV appearance.

Meanwhile, JWoww is also open to the idea that she will have her breast augmentation redone after several years as saline and silicone breast implants, although they are now made of a thicker shell, are not designed to last a lifetime.  However, her main concern is that pregnancy might affect the appearance of her surgery.

“I’ll have my breast implants redone in a few years after I’ve had kids”, the reality TV star said.

Regardless if JWoww went under the surgical knife again or not (and the improvements were just caused by weight loss and great make-up skills), most TV commentators and showbiz bloggers think that she looks better nowadays compared than during the season one of Jersey Shore.

Woman Tries to Have the Largest Breast Implants in the World

In an attempt to make history, Sheyla Hershey, 31, had undergone 30 breast surgeries to make her bust the biggest in the world through implants.  But just recently, she was forced to undergo an emergency procedure to remove her 38KKK cup size implants due to bad reaction and unusual pain during her recovery. 

However, what is more surprising is that she is still determined to hold the record for having the largest breast implant size in the world.  In fact, she was reported to have traveled to Mexico in order to receive a new operation to “reinflate” her breasts, even without her husband’s knowledge.

In an interview with the Daily Mail, Hershey was quoted saying that she felt “deformed without her breasts.” 

“I feel like I lost my leg,” she added.

Hershey regained her previous 38MMM cup size with a procedure that injected saline solution inside her breast implants.  Her husband only thought that she was going to Mexico in order to reconstruct her bust.

With the result of her new operation, she said she was happy and “felt whole again.”  Meanwhile, some experts believe she was suffering from body dysmorphic disorder, a type of mental illness in which the sufferers are extremely conscious to their body image and preoccupied with their slight or imaginary defects of their physical features.

According to previous reports, Hershey is also suffering from bipolar disorder.

Dr. Tarick Smaili, one of the leading plastic surgeons in Los Angeles, said that breast implants are reasonably safe “as long as they come in sizes appropriate to the body-frame and amount of tissue and skin of patients.”

“A good and ethical plastic surgeon will not push the body’s limit by introducing breast implant size that is way too large for a patient.  Violating this principle will likely result to higher risk of implant visibility, unusually painful recovery, and other serious complications,” Smaili said.

Smaili said that he was also concerned with the significant scar tissue associated with having multiple breast surgeries, which are necessary if one is going to have inordinately large breast implants.

“Hershey is likely having multiple breast implant surgery to slowly stretch her tissue and skin, however, it is also possible that she is using tissue expanders, which are temporary implants injected with saline every couple of weeks, so her breast can house larger sizes”, the surgeon added.

Meanwhile, the US Food and Drug Administration does not impose any limit on breast implant size although US manufacturers Mentor and Allergan do not offer implants larger than 800cc.
