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.

4 Steps to Shedding Your Pandemic Pounds

Forgive yourself, and start walking toward a healthier you.

For those of you who have put on the Pandemic Pounds or added several new COVID Curves, you are not alone. Alarmingly, the American Psychological Association has recently published that almost half of all adults in their survey now have a larger physique. In fact, 42% of people reported gaining roughly 15 pounds (the average published was surprisingly 29 pounds but that included outliers) over the past year. Interestingly, 20% of adults in this survey lost about 12 pounds (I am surely not in this group). Clearly, there is a relationship between stress and weight change. In addition, one in four adults disclosed an increase in alcohol consumption, and 67% of participants distressingly revealed that they have new sleeping patterns.

This past year has brought about what has been called the 'new normal.' Social isolation and inactivity due to quarantining and remote working have sadly contributed to the decline in many people's mental and physical health, as demonstrated by the widespread changes in people's weight, alcohol consumption, and sleeping patterns. Gym closures, frequent ordering of unhealthy takeout, and increased time at home cooking and devouring comfort foods have had a perceptible impact. In addition, many people have delayed routine medical care and screening tests over fear of contracting Covid-19 during these visits. Unfortunately, the 'new normal' has now placed too many people at risk for serious health consequences, including heart attacks and strokes.
