People come in all shapes and sizes and the world would be a very dull place if this wasn’t the case. Furthermore, the old adage that there is someone for everyone certainly makes sense, when you consider that there are over six billion people on earth, each with their own unique take on what beauty is.
The catwalk queens that strut their stuff in Paris and Milan are selected for their perceived beauty, sophistication and general photogenic qualities, and the distinguished features of male and female glamour models may well ‘look good’ in the glossy magazines. However, this isn’t a look that everyone finds attractive.
Words such as ‘tall’ or ‘slim’ are often used as descriptive terms for attractive people, but petite and curvy can be just as attractive. Beauty, as the saying goes, is most certainly in the eye of the beholder and is as subjective as fashion or tastes in music.
Many myths are perpetuated too, such as men preferring blonde women with big breasts. While there is no factual basis for this statement, it certainly has made breast enhancement popular and the surgery more widely accepted in recent years.
Young women, in particular, may be more impressionable, copying the countless celebrities who opt to undergo cosmetic surgery in search of a perceived ‘better’ body. Statistics showed that in 2008, breast enlargement operations in UK teenagers went up more than 150%.
Bigger isn't always better however as other statistics have shown that 75 percent of women who opt for breast enlargements choose to increase by just one or two cup sizes. Furthermore, acquiring smaller breasts has also increased in popularity, with recent statistics showing there has been an 8 percent rise in breast reduction surgery.
From a cosmetic standpoint, some women prefer not to have their appearance dominated by their chest.
