Test Drive Your Implants Before You Buy Them?
In what I would call a stroke of genius – a plastic surgeon in Nottingham, England (don’t worry, I thought of Robin Hood too) named Mark Henly gave women thinking about getting a boob job the chance to “test drive” their new breasts before making a final decision.
He gave them a large bra, with 10 gel-filled packets for each side. They were supposed to wear the bra for two weeks, and experiment with different amounts of padding, to see how different sized breasts would affect their daily lives. After two weeks with the padded bra, not only did most women still want to get implants, but they chose boobs 30% LARGER than they’d originally planned.
Mark said it’s also changed his recommendations to patients. He used to recommend a C-cup to women looking for implants, but after getting input from women after their test drives, he now recommends a D-cup.
Now, I don’t want to sound like a male chauvinistic pig here…but Mark, you are a true hero.
Just whatever you do, don’t get surgery at the same place you buy your coffee!
