PHOENIX – Did the big-busted look go out of style? According to a well-known valley surgeon, more and more women with big implants are getting them taken out, and going for a more natural look.
Pamela Anderson, Dolly Parton, and Heidi Montag are just some of the big names known for their big implants.
Just this week, Montag says she’s getting hers out. Dr. Daniel Shapiro, a top surgeon in the valley, says it’s something he’s seeing more often.
“If you look at fashion and music, that kind of dictates what happens. I think people are starting to look more proportioned and the Pam Anderson look isn’t so popular anymore,” he says.
At age 20, Melissa Rein went under the knife and came out a large D cup. She says it made exercise and shopping hard, and now five years later, she’s downsized to a moderate C.
“My back has hurt, and people have poked me and said why do you stand like that, and I say my breasts are heavy. You’d be surprised how much I lean forward and now I don’t have that problem anymore,” says Rein.
The procedure costs between $5,000 and $10,000 and could leave a scar, but it’s a sacrifice some women and willing to make to be comfortable in their own skin.
