According to a new study, breasts with a ratio of 45:55 are most appealing to both men and women. With this ratio, 45 percent of the breast tissue is above the nipple (upper pole) and 55 percent below (lower pole). The study involved showing numerous pictures of breasts to 1,315 randomly selected men and women. 54 plastic surgeons also participated. 87 percent of women and 90 percent of men preferred the 45:55 ratio. 94 percent of plastic surgeons found this more natural shape appealing as well.
Washington, DC plastic surgeon Dr. Eric Desman personalizes each breast surgery to produce ratios that ideally complement the patient. Dr. Desman will base your breast shape on your aesthetic desires and anatomical needs. This will be discussed with you in detail prior to your procedure to help ensure your absolute satisfaction with your final results.
