Many patients tend to concentrate on just one area of the body and the methods to correct it. Sometimes it is the breasts: they are either too small, too big or too sagging. Other times it is the buttock, and the same can be said about it. For other patients it is the middle area that is protruding instead of being flat and firm. But what most patients fail to understand – and this gives way to unsatisfactory results – is that we need to see the body as a whole, even if we want to improve just an area of it. Getting bigger breasts won’t necessarily make you look more beautiful. But getting breasts that are in perfect proportion with the rest of the body will. 90-60-90. This is considered to be the ideal dimensions for the shoulders, waist, and hips. This theory has been on for many years and put to the test by many scientists over time. A study published no later than in 2010 by Barnaby Dixson, a New Zealand anthropologist, shows that men are attracted to women who display a waist-hip ratio of 0.7. In other words, the diameter of your waist should be no more than 70% of the circumference of the hips. This study has the back up of other research that shows men are instinctively attracted to women who are healthy and fertile, and the adipose tissue on the hips and buttocks is a sign of being able to bear children. Aside from individual tastes, the perfect measurements are culturally determined. In Africa for example, a huge behind is highly prized while most women in the western world would rather opt for a few sizes less. As the studies show and as we can all see when admiring a beautiful woman, be it in a painting or in real life, the perfect dimensions are more a thing of proportionality than exact measurements. The 0.7 waist-to-hip ratio helps us get an idea of how curvaceous the body should be and to create it we can use liposuction to make the waist smaller, but also fat transfer to the hips to add more volume to that area.
