A plastic surgeon in New York is working on a method that puts a new spin on the phrase, “take the puppies out for a walk.” After developing the “insta breast,” which uses saline to give the temporary look of breast implants for 24 hours, Dr. Norman Rowe is now looking to expand that time period to two or three weeks.
It’s basically an injection of a mysterious chemical solution that gives women thinking about getting implants the chance to do a trial run with no long-term commitment. I’m not sure I’d personally be cool with injecting a mysterious chemical solution into my boobs, but then again, I’ve put a lot worse things into my body. “You can use 3-D imaging and put implants in bras,” Rowe said, “but it’s another thing to see what the weight will actually feel like and what it will be like to live with the new breasts.”
I see this as nothing but a positive. Women who are on the fence about the idea can get an example of what augmentation will look like on them, so there is less of a risk of someone having the procedure done and regretting it. I’m not blindly pro-implants per se, but I am a fan of people knowing what they’re getting themselves into. I’m also a fan of decreasing the chance of having to hear a woman complain about how her tits didn’t turn out how she thought they would.
While this is intended as a test drive for women considering implants, I like this whole “vacation breasts” concept. Will beaches around the world see an increase in cup size during the summer months? I really don’t see a downside to this, other than some non-representative Tinder pictures, but that’s a problem already. It’s a new world, fellas, and science is awesome..
