Once in a while prospective patients inquire asking whether or not I can do a “porn star style boob job.” We usually answer the question with a few questions:
How Large Are You Looking to Go?
How Do You Want To Look?
In looking into larger breast implant sizes and the way you want to look, there are a few things that come into play:
Your current breast tissue: How much is there? Some women want a very high round fake look that their current breast tissue works against. Normal breast tissue tends to look natural. It hangs a bit. Some women like this “natural look.” Others don’t.
Your willingness to risk things going wrong: The larger you go the more the chance that implants will droop, ripple, “firm up” or hurt. These chances get larger as the implant size gets larger.
There are ways reduce some of this risk and they generally involve doing a few operations to slowly increase the breast size and stopping at some point.
I look at these cases relative to the risk and how reasonable the patient seems. Many ladies just want moderately large and this is quite do-able.
