Friday, October 02, 2015 • 27 comments
Celebrity gossip is now more popular than ever. To wit, some celebrities are loving the attention and the public is often head-over-heels about everything and anything that has to do with the famous.
Celebrities have taken much of this to heart, with many flaunting their most favored physical assets. From lips, to buttocks, to breasts; we are often obsessed with the daily ups and downs of celebrity looks.
“Now more than ever, celebrities are influencing cosmetic decision-making among patients,” explains celebrity plastic surgeon Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian. In his exclusive plastic surgery and skin health clinic on upscale Montana Avenue in Santa Monica Beach, we discuss the most popular trends in breast implant surgery.
Dr. Karamanoukian is a leading beauty innovator and plastic surgeon to the most influential cadre among Hollywood’s entertainment scene. We sat down with Dr. Karamanoukian to discuss his take on what it takes to have beautiful breasts, with or without breast augmentation.
WHAT ARE SOME NEW TRENDS IN BREAST AESTHETICS?
Dr. Raffy Karamanoukian: We are definitely seeing a trend towards smaller breast implants. Women are no longer looking for just volume enhancement, they are seeking breast implants that enhance the female silhouette. Natural is in . . . of course, we all know that sometimes a natural + perky look is sometimes achieved only with surgery! But that’s our secret.
ANYTHING NEW IN BREAST IMPLANTS?
DR. RAFFY KARAMANOUKIAN: Silicone implants have certainly become safer and more patient-friendly as manufacturers have switched over to cohesive-gel breast implants. These implants are often called ‘gummy-bear’ implants because they have less risk of leaking over time because the silicone is more gel-like than ever before. We love these new breast implants because they give women a higher level of safety and they feel much more like natural breast tissue.
WHAT ELSE CAN BEAUTY-CONSCIOUS WOMEN EMPHASIZE WHEN DISCUSSING BREAST IMPLANT OPTIONS?
DR. RAFFY KARAMANOUKIAN: The three main elements that I discuss with women seeking breast augmentation include the need to have natural-looking implants to enhance the female body, the importance of accentuating cleavage as this allows women to feel sexy in clothes, and using surgical techniques to accentuate breast perkiness.
WOULD YOU ADVISE WOMEN TO SEEK BREAST AUGMENTATION?
DR. RAFFY KARAMANOUKIAN: Absolutely. Time and time again we see that women can enhance their self-confidence and sexiness with breast augmentation. In fact, several studies have confirmed these positive changes in women. As a dedicated plastic surgeon, I am committed to improving the lives of the women I treat.
