Boob Watch: How Hollywood Changed Cup Sizes

by Edie Pastis


When Pamela Anderson pranced down a California beach in the early 90s, flaunting an infamous bounce in her red one-piece, it created a surgical revolution. Suddenly, physical enhancement was being painted in a proud, new light, and Anderson's TV persona and real-life endowments were challenging previous rules of sexual propriety and identity. Soon breast implant and augmentation surgeries were largely welcomed into society with open fascination and admiration. The undeniable popularity and profitability of Pam's gravity-defying assets made waves in the entertainment industry, causing “boob jobs” to become a staple for many models and Hollywood actresses.


From there, it didn't take long for the trend to hit major cities and trickle down to suburbia, boosting cup sizes in women of all walks of life, and putting a new spin on sexual awareness for the female population. Increased acceptance of plastic surgery combined with improvements in safety and technology made breast augmentation accessible to soccer moms as well as to supermodels and socialites.

It's difficult to be certain who amongst the Hollywood elite has gotten breast enhancements when there's speculation about everyone's breasts, from Angelina Jolie to Omarosa. While many celebrities choose to remain mum about the authenticity of their heavily scrutinized looks, some are refreshingly matter-of-fact about the source of their maddening physical perfection. Demi Moore, Carmen Electra, Kim Kardashian, Heidi Montag and Denise Richards are a few who freely admit to breast augmentation.


Whether you're known to light up the silver screen or command the board room, today's choices of implant type and surgical method differ greatly for augmentation procedures. Specially shaped implants of silicone or saline let patients select teardrop, round, smooth, or textured implants for their own personal tastes and needs. While celebrities can certainly afford high-end treatments that aren't feasible for most of us, breast augmentation surgery continues to become cheaper and safer, so the masses can benefit too. A qualified plastic surgeon can recommend the most appropriate implant style to get you the results you want.

Because, it's true, we're never going to look like Angelina Jolie, or fill out a bathing suit quite like Pamela Anderson, but there are plenty of surgical options today that can give us regular folks a boost; be it to our bras, our self-confidence, or to both.
