Breast augmentation boosted in LA
Demand for breast enlargement in the US city of Los Angeles has risen over the summer, according to a plastic surgeon from the area.
Dr Grant Stevens said that it was probably as a result of warm weather, which leads to thoughts of summer activities and thus of looking as good as possible in swimwear.
"Many women choose to come to LA from out of town because it allows them to travel and explore Los Angeles during the summer," said Stevens.
"It's exciting for them because they are getting the figure they've always wanted and getting to vacation in such an interesting and lively city as Los Angeles.
"After surgery, one of the most satisfying aspects of surgery for them is being out there on the beach, feeling confident in their swimsuits."
Dr Stevens noted that many patients combine their breast augmentation surgery with breast lift procedures, especially mothers who have lost some shape and volume as a result of pregnancy or breast feeding.
