What is the importance of breast aesthetics? What does an ideal breast look like?
Breasts are probably the most important elements of the female sexual identity, which connote maternity and femininity. They have a major role in the perception of sexiness. On the other hand, they’re the source of the breastmilk, which is vitally important for a newborn baby. The ideal breast should look upright and conical, in a full teardrop shape. Being proportionate to the rest of the body dimensions, a nice cleavage, and a nice shape are essentials of breast aesthetics.
What are the types of breast implants? Which one is suitable for me?
