PHILADELPHIA, PA--(Marketwire - Sep 25, 2012) - Will my breast implants melt in a sauna? Do I need to replace them every 10 years? Will a mammogram pop them? Dr. Ted Eisenberg, Guinness World Record holder for most breast augmentation surgeries performed, candidly answers hundreds of actual patient questions in "The Scoop on Breasts: A Plastic Surgeon Busts the Myths" (Incompra Press 2012).
In 2010, about 336,000 women in the United States had breast augmentation; worldwide, that number exceeded 1.5 million. "Men and women have a lot of questions and misconceptions about breasts and implants," says Eisenberg. "There is no stereotypical patient. My patients range in age from 18 to 63, and only a tiny percentage are exotic dancers."
Co-author Joyce Eisenberg adds extra padding: fun facts about breasts and breast implants around the world -- from Down Under, where the Royal Australian Navy paid for its sailors' breast implants; to Japan, which has a goddess of breasts; to Great Britain, whose women reportedly have the largest breasts in Europe. She also reveals the length of typical female nipples, the most commonly requested implant sizes, and the names that women have given to their "girls."
The book is filled with over 200 photographs and illustrations. It's available in paperback for $17.95, in e-book formats, and through the iTunes bookstore. To read excerpts, visit www.thescooponbreasts.com.
A portion of the proceeds of every book sale will be donated to the Linda Creed Breast Cancer Foundation, which provides free mammograms for women with little or no medical insurance.
