Women either want breast implants or they don’t.
But now a new procedure will let them have it both ways.
Call it “vacation breasts” – a doctor in New York City has come up with a creative way for women who have not made up their minds about getting a breast augmentation. The “vacation breasts” procedure, currently in the works by doctor Norman Rowe, will purportedly increase bust sizes up one cup or more, and then slowly bring them back to their natural size in two to three weeks.
A plastic surgeon based in Manhattan, Rowe said he will start performing the procedure in 2016. The main goal, he said, is to let women experience their new shape fully.
"You can use 3-D imaging and put implants in bras," he 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," he told ABC’s Good Morning America.
The temporary breasts can also appeal to women interested in showing off during a summer vacation or perhaps a short fling. But it would be costly: a procedure already being offered by Rowe, an instant breast enlargement that lasts 24 hours, costs upward of $2,500 – depending on the size requested.
Rowe did not disclose the chemical makeup of the solution, but he did offer that the additive is something that's already used in the medical community for other purposes.
According to Rowe, men could also take advantage of the technique to enhance their pecs and calves.
