Wow! Naya has one of the best bodies in Hollywood, there is no denying that, but did she recently get an enhancement? Fans were suspicious of a breast augmentation after she posted a busty bikini pic on her Instagram on March 18. We spoke to multiple plastic surgeons — see what they said below.
According to four plastic surgeons, they all agree that it appears like Glee star Naya Rivera, 27, had breast implants, increasing her previous B cup to a D cup. See what they had to say about the surgery — the down time, cost and the different types below.
Naya Rivera: Boob Job? — Expert Plastic Surgeons Speak On Her New Body
Top board certified Cosmetic Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Barry Weintraub, who is based in NYC, tells HollywoodLife.com EXCLUSIVELY:
“In my opinion, without seeing the patient in person, it does appear that she has had larger breast implants put in.”
As far as choosing how big to go, Dr. Weintraub says: “One must be careful to look natural, and in proportion. If a statuesque woman is totally flat-chested and wants to have large breasts, one could go from an A to a D, but I would not advise doing anything that ruins the natural proportion of a woman’s body and begins to look fake.”
“I always prefer to use the transaxillary, sub-pectoral approach, meaning that I insert the implant through a tiny incision in the armpit and position the implant under the muscle. This technique leaves no visible scars anywhere near the breast, and it does not interfere with future breast feeding. In addition, the recovery is very quick: if a woman has the procedure on a Friday, she can be back to work by Monday, so long as her job does not entail great physical exertion.”
There are two types of implants, Dr. Weintraub explains: “There are saline and silicone implants. Silicone behaves more naturally, and comes in different styles to suit the individual patient.”
More Experts Suspect A Boob Job
Dr. William Bruno, Board Certified Beverly Hills Plastic Surgeon, agrees that she has had work done and tells HollywoodLife.com:
“In the most recent photo, her volume appears larger. The roundness of the cleavage as well also suggests a breast augmentation.”
“Most patients can increase their bra size by one to two cup sizes, depending on the elasticity of their skin.”
The cost of implants vary between doctors and areas of the country, but our experts say that saline implants cost between $4,500 to $6,000 and silicone ranges from $6,500 to $10,000.”
“Most patients choose silicone due to it’s more natural feel. You must be 22 years old to be eligible for silicone in the United States.”
Naya May Have Increased 2 Cup Sizes — Expert
NYC-based Cosmetic Surgeon Dr. Matthew Schulman tells us EXCLUSIVELY that the defined cleavage and roundness of her breasts suggest implants.
“Early photos of Naya show breasts that are likely a very small B. Subsequent photos appear to show that she has had breast augmentation. The well defined cleavage and roundness is suggestive of breast implants. She appears to have increased to a small C in 2013 and may have even had them enlarged again to a very large C or small D cup.”
Dr. Schulman says the procedure takes about 90 minutes to perform. Downtime is only 2 days but he recommends waiting about 3 weeks before any vigorous exercise.
Are There Risks Associated With Breast Implants?
David Cangello, M.D., Director Of Plastic Surgery at JUVA Skin, Laser and Plastic Surgery Center also weighs in on the risks and rewards of a breast augmentation:
“Looking at those 2 photos, it certainly does appear that she has had breast implants. Her breasts are much larger in the “After” picture and she has that roundness to the middle aspect of her breasts that is characteristic of the shape of breast implants.
It is difficult to say whether they look natural because they are being pushed up somewhat by her bathing suit top. Assessment of whether breast implants look natural is best done when the patient is not wearing garments.
The risks in going “too big” are related to how much the breast tissue is stretched by having a large implant placed underneath it. The most common problem associated with having implants that are too large is that overtime the breast skin stretches because of the weight of the implant and ultimately a secondary procedure (breast lift) is needed.”
