Much like test-driving a hot rod at a dealership, women are now able to test out a hot rack with the advent of Insta Breast, a new surgical procedure that allows women to try out temporary breast implants.
Plastic Surgeon Dr. Norman Rowe told ABC News:
The saline gets absorbed by the body. It's for the women who don't have time for implants.
It's a procedure that can take as little as 20 minutes and cost between $2,500 and $3,500. Rowe provides a saline injection into women's breasts that allows them to have breast implants for 24 hours.
The motive for the invention is for women to have a way to accurately test out breast implants. Rowe says,
You can use 3D imaging and put implants in bras, but it's another thing to see what the weight will actually feel like and what it will be like to live with the new breasts.
The surgeon says he's going one step farther, too. Rowe is in the process of creating temporary implants that will last for two weeks, because maybe a single day with implants is just not long enough.
He calls them "vacation breasts," and says they could be ready for use in about two years.
Rowe says "vacation breasts" would be perfect for special occasions like weddings and getaways, and would also give women a better idea of what it's like to live with implants.
Twenty-four hours is great. But it's still just 24 hours.
