This procedure can help improve the balance of breast and hip contours and enhance self-confidence. Read more about breast augmentation from the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Scientists Say They’ve Found the Perfect Breasts

According to a study published in the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery—which involved asking over 1,300 people to look at pictures of naked boobies and rank them by hotness (stop laughing, this is serious research!)—people preferred a more “real” and “normal” look from their silicone, with the ideal breast shape having a 45:55 ratio. People said the best chests have 45 percent of the fullness above the nipple line and 55 percent of the fullness below, in a slightly teardrop shape. Researchers noted this preference remained consistent across gender, racial, and ethnic groups with the 45:55 ratio favored by 87 percent of women in their 30s, 90 percent of men, and 94 percent of plastic surgeons. reprinted from Shape magazine
