And the perfect pair of breasts belong to...
by ANN LEE - Monday, September 24, 2007 It's every woman's dream to have perfect breasts and one cosmetic surgeon claims to have found a formula for the best chest.
Patrick Mallucci spent hours scrutinising photos of topless models in lads magazines and tabloid newspapers - all in the name of research – as he formulated his theory. [Photo inset: Caprice... The perfect breasts]
The model breast has a nipple that points slightly up with an upper half that is a bit smaller than the bottom half, according to the cosmetic surgeon who will outline his findings in a lecture titled Concepts in Design for Breast Augmentation.
“The ideal is a 45 to 55 per cent proportion – that is the nipple sits not at the half-way mark down the breast, but at about 45 per cent from the top,” Mr Mallucci told the Daily Mail.
He will present his formula, which he hopes will be used by other surgeons, at the first international conference on breast enlargement in London this week.
“I studied a wide variety of photographs of the most popular topless models to work out the various proportions they had in common and what made those particular features attractive,” said Mr Malluicci, who only studied pictures of models who had not had breast enlargements.
“These findings allowed me to form a template around which to plan a breast augmentation, and set a standard of aesthetics.”
According to Mr Mallucci, the best breasts belonged to model Caprice Bourret while the worst were Victoria Beckham's “unnaturally round globes”.
He is one of the founding surgeons of Mybreast.org, which shares best practice on breast enlargement.
