Music star and fashion icon Iggy Azalea has publicly discussed her breast augmentation with the media. When asked by Vogue in March what she would like to change about her body, Azalea replied "I did change something: four months ago, I got bigger boobs! I'd thought about it my entire life."
When asked by E! why she chose to go public with her private surgery, which had previously been unnoticed by the media, Azalea replied "I love them so much I had to talk about them!" She did acknowledge that "everybody did say, "I don't think you need to say it because no one will ever know because they're so small.'"
Azalea represents a new trend in breast augmentation (breast implant surgery): women opting for smaller, more subtle, and more natural-appearing implant sizes. Particularly in my Upper East Side practice, it is common for women to seek breast augmentation with the goal of continuing to fit in their own clothes, not drawing too much attention to themselves, and continuing to appear natural. Most of my patients chose not to disclose their breast augmentation to all but their closest companions or romantic partner.
It is a misconception that breast implants must be large, spherical, and heavy-looking. If you are interested in small volume breast augmentation, discuss your sizing and concerns at the time of your consultation appointment.
