Bargain Breast Enhancement? Liposuction Linked To Increased Cup Size

January 31, 2008 by Rebekah

Some plastic surgery patients have all the luck. Sort of like going on vacation and returning with a perfect tan and clear skin, a good number of women who’ve had abdominal liposuction have noticed a welcome side effect: increased cup size.

A study published last year in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and recently brought to light by W Magazine found that 40 percent of patients experienced significant increases in breast size following abdominal liposuction, and a 2003 study found similar results.

It’s not quite a two-for-one, so we're staying safely in the realm of temporary enhancement – isn't shopping for lingerie more fun than shopping for surgeons anyway? If you're like us and don’t want to bank on a side effect (or, you know, lipo), try one of these Calvin Klein Bras. Or at least wear them to decide if you'd rather be bigger before taking the permanent plunge.

The Push-Up Bra ($38) is comfortable and unwavering – we swear, you won’t have to adjust every 15 minutes. The results look simultaneously natural and gravity-defying. If you’re not in the market for a cleavage boost or want a bit more coverage, the Perfectly Fit with Lace ($39) provides adequate padding but disappears under T-shirts and sweaters.
