What’s the Ideal Breast Size?
There is no perfect breast size. Female breasts serve both a functional and an aesthetic purpose. While they’re mammary glands that feed newborns, they also add balance to the female form. Societal norms over the years have varied in what’s considered the ideal breast size. In the 1960s, for example, small breasts were in vogue, while in the 1990s, breast enhancement became safer and more affordable, leading to a wave of popularity.
Boob jobs flourished in 2000 and beyond as the topic became more and more acceptable and prominent in the media. As every aspect of body contouring through cosmetic surgery becomes more mainstream, women, men and non-binary alike accept the idea that freedom means you can have whatever body shape makes you happy and completes the image you have of yourself. The ideal breast size is one that:
- Provides you with the ultimate confidence in yourself
- Appeals to your sense of style and beauty
- Gets you noticed for parts in theater or television
- Allows you to wear the clothes you prefer
- Projects the image that you see for yourself
And to help you achieve the perfect breasts for yourself, the best plastic surgeon is in Manhattan at Millennial Plastic Surgery. Dr. David Shokrian is skilled, compassionate and one of the best listeners you’ll ever meet. He works with you to achieve your goals — and no one else’s.
What Conditions Are Treated by a Breast Surgeon?
Not all breast surgery is done for cosmetic reasons. Breast reduction, technically called mammoplasty, is a procedure that’s performed when large breasts lead to other co-occurring problems, such as back and neck pain. When prescribed by a doctor for medical purposes, breast reduction may be covered by your insurance company. Meanwhile, breast reduction done for purely cosmetic reason usually isn’t.
Breast cancer often requires that a lump be removed from a breast. Mastectomy is done as a precautionary procedure when there’s a threat of cancer or it’s spread so much that the safest route is to remove a whole breast or both breasts. While treatment is medically necessary, you also want to be treated by breast plastic surgeons who understand the need for aesthetically pleasing breasts. Other conditions treated by a breast plastic surgeon include:
Gynecomastia is a condition that causes men to develop large breasts, which is often treated with chest liposuction
Macromastia, which is the name of abnormally large breasts, typically seen in teenagers, that can lead to further complications in addition to back pain, such as pain in the chest wall and tingling and numbness in the fingers, hands and arms
Non-invasive breast cancer
Non-invasive breast cancer, which is defined as being potentially pre-cancerous and may be due to unexplainable lumps in your breast
Invasive breast cancer
Invasive breast cancer treated by a mastectomy that’s very often followed up with surgery to place breast implants during the same surgical procedure

What Are Different Kinds of Breast Surgery?

- Too large
- Too small
- Uneven or lopsided
- Drooping or sagging
- Too fatty on men
- In danger due to implant malfunction
- Not comfortable because of poorly done implants
- Necessary as part of your transitioning

What’s Involved in Breast Plastic Surgery Treatments?
Many breast surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis, meaning you go home following a short period of recovery at your breast plastic surgeons' practice. More in-depth procedures, like mastectomy followed by implants, require a two-to-three-day hospital stay. But Dr. Shokrian and his team make sure you feel supported no matter where you’re recovering.
The length of breast surgery varies from about one hour to more than three or four, depending on what’s being done. The process for completing most breast surgery operations follows a pretty standard set of steps that include:
- IV sedation or general anesthesia that makes you comfortable or puts you out
- Incisions made in the least noticeable places along your breasts and in line with the desired outcome
- Your nipples and areolas may be removed, depending on the type of surgery
- Implants placed, fat suctioned out or skin tightened to achieve your final look
- Incisions closed with sutures; nipples and areolas reattached in the proper positions
How Long Is Breast Surgery Recovery?
Breast surgery recovery time varies depending on what you had done and how extensive the process was. A breast lift, for example, may require just a couple days rest before returning to light duty, and a month or so before you can return to your regular workout routine.
More invasive procedures like breast augmentation and breast reduction require a steadier and longer pace until you complete your full recovery. Recommendations along the way to ensure the quickest, safest and most productive recovery include:
- Feeling sore for a couple weeks
- Taking pain medication as prescribed
- Visiting you surgeon after about 14 days for a checkup and to have stitches removed if necessary
- Resting whenever you feel tired
- Avoiding heavy lifting for about six weeks
- Resisting the urge to drive for at least a couple weeks or until your doctor gives you the green light
- Refraining from soaking in a tub for about four weeks
- Eating a normal, healthy diet
- Following your breast surgeon’s recommendations for sleeping positions
- Drinking plenty of fluids
- Walking every day, increasing the length of walks over time
