Attractive breasts

Attractive breasts

The perception of body shape is in constant change. The morphological characteristics of the breast are not spared. Would you like to know which types of breasts are the most attractive?

Under the title Aesthetic Characteristics of the Female Breast, a study was published in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery – Global Open last January. It examined the surveyed public’s perceptions of attractiveness with respect to breast anatomy and morphology. The study found that moderate-sized, projecting breasts with fullness at the top were associated with higher “attractiveness” scores.

“…moderate-sized, projecting breasts with fullness at the top were associated with higher “attractiveness” scores…”

Within the group of more attractive breasts, all patients had minimal ptosis and projected contour. The mean breast size was moderate, with a mean volume of 299.4 ± 115.8 cm3.

Anthropometric measurements were similar to those described in 2011 by Liu and Thomson, with a mean SN-N distance of 20.7 cm ± 1.8 cm and N-IMF of 7.2 cm ± 0.8 cm.12. A volume distribution analysis was performed. A UP (Upper Pole)-to-LP (Lower Pole) ratio of 55:45 was found to be the average in this group, with most patients having at least 60% of their breast volume concentrated in the UP (Upper Pole), which is consistent with the aforementioned preference for UP (Upper Pole) fullness when evaluating breast aesthetics.

“…patients with at least 60% of their breast volume concentrated in the upper pole…”

The study provides information on the physical characteristics that most people find to be attractive breasts. This information could be useful for women considering cosmetic breast surgery whether it be breast augmentation such as mastopexy or even breast reduction, as it will allow them to make informed decisions about the procedure.

“…The study does not provide conclusive evidence that women with breasts perceived as more attractive are considered more beautiful overall.”

However, it is important to keep in mind that beauty is subjective, and what one person finds attractive, another person may not. It should be emphasized for the lay reader that the study is not a guarantee that women with moderate-sized, projecting, full breasts on top will be perceived as more attractive by others.

Ultimately, the decision to undergo cosmetic surgery is a personal one. Women should weigh the risks and benefits of the procedure before making a decision. The study provides information that may be useful in making this decision, but it should not be the only factor considered.
