What Does a Perfectly Shaped Breast Look Like?

A new study published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, suggests that most people find a 45:55 ratio to be the perfect breast shape. With this ratio, 45 percent of the breast is above the nipple and 55 percent is below – and a decisive 87 percent of women and 90 percent of men surveyed found that look most appealing.

For this study, more than 1,300 respondents were asked to rank pictures of breasts on their attractiveness. Researchers were surprised to find that a majority of men preferred the 45:55 ratio, a shape that tends to look much more natural and less enhanced. 94 percent of the 53 plastic surgeons surveyed for this study preferred the 45:55 ratio as well.

While it is clear that many people like the 45:55 ratio, it is not right for every woman. Understanding this, Salem breast augmentation surgeon Dr. George Chatson works individually with each patient to establish the dimensions and shape best suited to meet specific desires. Dr. Chatson offers a variety of breast augmentation options that can be combined to ideally complement any frame. He welcomes an opportunity to meet with you for a one-on-one consultation where he can listen your desires, assess your frame, and discuss which options will best suit your needs.
