A New Year Dawns & A New You Awakens: What Breast Treatments Are Available To You?

Perhaps you’ve already started planning what resolutions you’re going to make in the New Year? You’ve probably already decided which ones won’t last longer than two weeks. However, have you considered that a fresh new year brings a variety of new opportunities? If you have been considering breast treatments, why not use this as an excuse to begin your surgery journey and start 2017 off feeling great naked?



Breast Treatments Available To You In 2017

  1. Enlargements

    breast treatments

Whether you’re unhappy with your bust size or have lost volume over the years, a breast enlargement could be for you. Breast enlargements use either silicon or saline implants. You have the choice between round or teardrop shaped implants too. Both the shape and material of the implant will have benefits.

When undergoing a breast enlargement the volume of the breast is increased. However, this is measured in cc’s rather than cup sizes. Therefore it’s advised you try the rice test to find your ideal volume.

There is the option of fat transfer, wherein which fat from your thighs is injected into the breast tissue. Of course, you need to consider that this would create two areas that need recovering rather than one.

2. Reductions

There may be a variety of reasons why a woman may seek breast reduction treatments. For some, the size of their natural breast can cause great discomfort and pain. For others, there may be feelings of awkwardness and a loss of confidence due to breasts being out of proportion with the rest of the body. Whatever the motivation there are breast treatments out there to help.

Breast reduction surgeries typically remove excess breast tissue and skin reducing the volume and giving a lift to any previous sagging.

3. Uplifts

Sex After Breast Surgery

Time, weight and pregnancy can all affect the perkiness of breast tissues. Therefore, if the sagginess of your breasts is causing discomfort or a loss of confidence you are able to undergo a breast uplift. Incisions are created and the nipple area relocated to return the breast to a younger and perkier position.

4. Male Breast Reductions and Transgender Surgeries.

Hit The Nail On The Head: Nail Trends 2017

Over the past couple of years, nail trends have gone from strength to strength. Thanks to improvements in nail polish formulas and the expansion of materials at hand, absolutely everyone can shake up their nail style. 2017 is no different, the catwalks saw many different themes on models nails. I’ve therefore compiled a list of my favourite nail trends to look forward to in the new year.


Nail Trends To Try In 2017

  1. Delicate GlitterNail Trends 2017

    Of course, I was always going to feature glitter in my top nail trends list for 2017. But, this glitter is much softer and elegant compared to all out sparkle nails. Rodarte showed pretty nails with glitter placed delicately at the cuticle of the nail. However, if that’s too fussy for you, simply try a gentle wash of glitter over nude pink and you’ll nail this trend. Try OPIs I Reached My Gold Glitters (£14).

2. Blood Red Nails

Nail Trends 2017

Blood red nails shall always be stylish. There’s just something about a woman wearing perfectly polished red nails that makes you pay attention. Kate Spade sent her models down the runway in glossy shades of red and Rebecca Minkoff broke down the manicure and highlighted the different parts of the nail. Try Butter’s Saucy Jack polish to achieve this look (£15).

3. Mirrored Metallics

Nail Trends 2017

Shine on, ladies! This metallic trend adds a futuristic feel to your outfit, whilst remaining luxurious. Gild your nails in gold or make them shimmer with silver. Philip Lim painted his girls with brilliant chrome colours, whereas Michael Costello finished the tips off with sparkly pinks. Chanel’s Peridot (£22) is an oldie but a goodie and shines in greens and golds depending on the angle.

4. Oceanic Angles

Nail Trends 2017

Want to add a fresh feel to your nails, look no further. The runways saw graphic designers and tropical aqua blues storm the stage. From Novis to Christian Siriano, this oceanic hue had us longing for beach holidays. Plus, the graphic designs kept it modern and cool. Try Essie’s In The Cab-Ana (£7) to get this look.

I will definitely be sporting all of these nail trends next year. It’s always surprising how much a difference painting your nails can have on your mood. So take some time out for yourself and get creative on those nails.

Rice & Easy: Find Your Ideal Breast Size With The Rice Test

Rice has many uses, from forming the basis of many well-loved meals to absorbing moisture from unwanted places. Well, were you aware that rice can be used to help find your ideal breast volume before surgery? That’s right, the rice test is a way of patients of finding a volume they are happy with and to help them gain an idea of how they will look post procedure. I have explained exactly how to do the test you below, so keep reading and try out the rice test to work out exactly what you’re looking for in augmentation.

How To Do The Rice Test

The rice test is a fast and easy way to get an idea of how you would look with different sizes of breast implants. Rice will sit comfortably against your body and will shape in a natural way. Thereby, giving you a clear idea of what volume increase you could be looking at for your bust.

Rice Test

In order to create your own rice sizers at home, simply follow the instructions below. These will allow you to work out the volume of the breasts you’re after. Once you have made your homemade sizers, place them inside of a sports bra and you will begin to get an idea of how you can enhance your bust with breast augmentation.

The Rice Test Size Guide

To make your homemade breast implants:

  • Cut a 12-inch length of tights or stockings (do not use the foot).
  • Tie a knot in one end.
  • Fill the length with rice according to the chart below:
    Make a knot at the open end so that the rice sits fairly loosely and will conform to the breast shape when placed inside a bra.

Rice Test

Ziploc freezer bags can be used instead of tights, but stockings or tights are usually more comfortable and fall into a more natural shape when placed inside the bra. Should you find yourself out of rice, other fillers that can be used including oats or instant potato flakes.

The Rice Test

Take time to wear the rice sizers around the house in various different style clothing so you know how you’ll look and feel in everything you wear post surgery. Be aware that volume doesn’t necessarily equate cup size. A D cup on one woman could be a C on another. It’s more about finding a size and shape you’re happy with rather than just picking a cup size.

MedBelle Recommends The Rice Test

Here at Medbelle, we advise all our patients to try the rice test to really get a feel for the change they are about to embark on. Should you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us as our team is waiting to help.
