According to a study published in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®, the official medical journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breasts with a ratio of 45:55 are almost universally seen as “ideally shaped.” With this ratio, 45% of breast tissue is above the nipple and 55% is below – a shape that was found preferable to 87% of the women, 90% of the men, and 94% of the plastic surgeons included in this sampling of nearly 1,400 people. An even 50:50 ratio was a distant second choice in this survey during which people were shown pictures of various breasts and asked to judge their attractiveness.
Creating ideal breast shape is one of the primary goals of breast augmentation surgery. Board-certified Indianapolis plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Fata understands this and takes time to fully personalize each procedure to create ratios ideal for the individual.
45:55 may be universally considered perfect, but that does not mean it is equally complementary on each body. A highly respected and top awarded plastic surgeon, Dr. Fata knows how to assess the all of the body’s subtle curves and nuances to produce a breast shape that completes and enhances the natural appeal of the frame. During your initial consultation, Dr. Fata will evaluate your frame, listen intently to your desires, and help you choose the breast shape and size best suited to your body.
