Reader Laura’s Comment:
A poll from The Sun in the UK voted Katie Price’s implants the worst in Britain. Do you think that the trend for having the largest breasts is now going away?
To an extent, breast augmentation goal sizes go in and out of fashion. If you look at Heidi Montag’s recent surgical fiasco however, you’d see that extremes still play in the media. Whether or not that shows signs of trends in popular culture is questionable.
Reality television types seek extremes to stay newsworthy. In this sense, Katie Price and Heidi Montag have succeeded. In my practice I do not see people specifically looking for other people’s breasts or anything else for that matter. Women have widely variable desires regarding their breast implants and reality television types do not typify the public to any significant extent.
Regarding the classification, Katie’s breasts are not that bad. There are far worse out there. Katie just went really large at one point and has had many operations following that…which is pretty typical of the larger implant patient.
