Have models and their plastic surgeons lost all concept of what breasts are supposed to look like?



I say YES!

I'm convinced that in medical school, they learn by using softballs and epoxy.

Maybe it's not a matter of what they look like but how much they can afford....

I agree with the last statement in getting what you pay for.

Like all professions, you have some great ones and bad ones, problem is, many people don't do research. Not to mention, every woman's body is anatomically different, doctors can only work with what they have and obviously their skills, which normally improve over time--no surgeon is born a surgeon, it's an acquired skill like photography.

I'm not making excuses, as there are many "butchers" out there, but there are also geniune doctors too. It's almost like photography, you might be a pro shooter with great skills, but you may not have the greatest model to photograph, so you do what you can for her, utlimately it's a self-esteem issue for the subject. You also have new pro photographers who have the skills but lack experience, and no matter how photogenic the model is, the end result is either beginner's luck or beginners compromise.

As noted before, the best surgeons (doctors) are those with experience and skill, obviously they cost more (just like photographers). However, those that cost more came from the same roots as in every profession--a beginner--and every beginner usually practices on someone, even in the medical field. Just my thoughts, back from Europe, interesting topic, rg sends!

while the blame for some girls sporting hideous bolt-ons certainly lies with the skills (or lack thereof) of more than a few cosmetic surgeons, the patients themselves often share a big part of the blame. Some girls insist on implants that are simply too big for their body types. Others are in such a hurry to become enhanced, they do so before they're able to afford a "quality" boob job. This isn't just about affording better surgeons, it's also about the type of surgery performed. For instance, it costs more for a surgeon to insert the implants from under the arms or through the navel area than to make an incision under the breasts or to perform nipple-amputations so the implants can be installed.

Remind me to come talk to you if I never need implants (grin) and no, I'm Latin, that "area" is fine (lol)....

Yep, you are correct my friend and it's sad and somtimes a gamble, though much of it is based on self-esteem and our own societal values (pressures), marketing, etc., has a big share of the blame too--also know as sociology, hence why I feel the way I do when it comes to "photographic therapy." I actually have a chapter on this in my upcoming book, Photographic Therapy, which is a mainstream book with a photography documentary-style book to follow. Here are some of my views, click here!

Wishing you the best, and I hope to see you in LA while at Glamourcon in a few weeks! Holley, Kellie and Tess will be there at the table with me, drop by, later, rg sends!
