Surgeon Study Reveals Patient’s Perception of ‘Ideal Breast’ Reflects Natural Model
DEL MAR, Calif., February 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — New research by a team of board-certified plastic surgeons and co-authors has sought to define the formula and characteristics behind what many women define as ideal breast shape and proportions.
The research, published in the Aesthetic Society’s Cosmetic Surgery Reviewprovides measurable digital data that could help plastic surgeons in the field nationwide to make their patients’ ideals a living reality.
Each year, nearly 325,000 women undergo breast-related cosmetic surgeries, from breast reductions that relieve pain and discomfort, to breast lifts and breast augmentations using FDA-approved saline or silicone implants. .
Although it is widely recognized that the safety and aesthetic outcome of the 325,000 such procedures performed each year depend more on the skill of the surgeon than anything else, less is known and documented about the ideal or attractive breast. . What makes it? Is it measurable? And is it reproducible?
The team of four plastic surgeons set out to find out exactly that, pointing out that a lot of time and effort is invested in developing breast surgery techniques, while lacking “a model to identify what exactly are the factors that define an attractive breast”.
The lead author of the article, Dr. Paul E. Chasanhad noticed early on that in the more than 5,000 breast surgery consultations he had conducted with patients for over 26 years, the same 10-15 before and after images were chosen from his gallery by patients still and even. as describing their desired surgical outcomes.
The authors studied these clinical photographs and hundreds of others, including photographs of a female celebrity widely considered attractive. The adage that “beauty is in the eye of the beholder” may be true, but what about a plastic surgeon who seeks to help provide or enhance that beauty for a patient, such as only she considers it? This surgeon needs proven formulas and measured numerical values to make his ideals a reality that is integrated and commensurate with the patient’s unique body type.
Three breast measurements proved vital and revealed a formula that is no different from the Fibonacci sequence, a “golden ratio” seen in nature, from seashells to spiral galaxies.
Images reviewed and data presented are based on surgical results from a practice, Ranch & Coast Plastic Surgery in Del Mar, Californiabut it adds important information to cosmetic breast surgeries, a staple in the repertoire of plastic surgeons around the world according to annual statistics from several professional societies.
