Women going for conical implants to ape Man Men's Christina Hendricks
Christina Hendricks, whose showcases her voluptuous physique by her figure-hugging dresses in her role as secretary Joan Holloway in 'Mad Men', has led to a new trend among women seeking breast implants.
According to consultant plastic surgeon Garrick Georgeu, in the last 18 months conical implants have grown in popularity, with 60 percent of his patients now opting for the shape.
'Up until two years ago all we had was anatomical-shaped implants to offer patients which gave a round, almost cartoonish look,' the Daily Mail quoted him as saying.
'Many of my patients are women who have lost volume to their breasts with age, or after having children, and so the conical implant is ideal for them.
'And what the conical implant does is lift up the breast giving them fullness in the upper part giving a natural voluptuous look, similar to Christina Hendricks,' he said.
However, another plastic surgeon, Nilesh Sojitra, warned it is essential the right volume of implant is used, or patients can end up with pointy breasts, similar to the cone-shaped bras Madonna once favoured.
Hendricks came to global attention for her role in the American drama 'Mad Men' set in a New York advertising firm during the 1960s.
