Blog — Notes of a Plastic Surgeon

Welcome to my blog. I am a plastic surgeon in Seattle and have been in private practice since 1991. I've seen more than a few interesting faces and cases through my years spent in the exam room, the operating room and the emergency room. And I have an opinion on just about everything relating to plastic surgery (and a lot of unrelated stuff). If you like my blog, let me know. Thanks for reading! Lisa

The Ideal Breast

The ideal breast has a little more fullness below the nipple and above the nipple.

The Ideal Breast

I just read an interesting review of an article published in the Journal of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery about the ideal breast.   Here’s the link.

If you don’t want to read the review, I will summarize.  A bajillion individuals which included men and women of various ages and nationalities were asked to rate a series of breasts on their attractiveness.  The findings were interesting in that size was not as much of a factor as was the shape and proportion of the breast.  And – surprise!- the majority of judges preferred a breast that looked natural which translates into a breast that does not have a bulging upper pole.

I am just glowing after reading this article.   I have made it my life’s work to make breasts look like they could have occurred in nature on a really, really, really good day!

Thanks for reading!  Dr. Lisa Lynn Sowder
