How big should breasts be?

Did you hear about the 28-year-old Texas woman with the largest breast implants in the world? She already had giant implants making her a 34FFF – but that wasn’t big enough. She wanted to be enormous. No surgeon in Texas would put bigger ones in so she flew to Brazil. She’s now a 38KKK.

Breast augmentations are the most common cosmetic surgical procedure.  Three hundred and fifty-six thousand women in the US had the procedure last year alone, adding to the millions over 40 years.  Despite all the jokes, there are positives: they improve self-esteem and body image.  And clothing fits better.


Don’t be swayed by those actresses with giant implants.  Honest plastic surgeons make average size breasts.  That’s a B or C cup.  Breast implants shouldn’t be used to make freaks.
