The 45/55 Principle

Mr Patrick Mallucci | London Plastic Surgery | Perfect Breast

Patients find it very difficult to decide where to go for plastic surgery. The prominence of plastic surgery advertising, experts on TV, websites and referrals from friends mean patients are often unsure how to tell the good from the bad from the brilliant.

With any element of our lives, it is clearly always going to be better if we go to an expert. Of course, all surgeons claim to be experts. But are they? The human body is an incredibly complex machine and understanding it takes many years of training, courses, re-education and research. After qualification for the prestigious FRCS (plast) surgeons can perform any number of cosmetic procedures. However, a very small number decide to focus very specifically on one area. Patrick Mallucci is one such surgeon. Mr Mallucci decided to focus his work , research and expertise on reconstructive and aesthetic breast work.

As part of this work, Mr Mallucci undertook an amazing piece of research.  Mr Mallucci set out to find what people perceived as “The Perfect Breast”. Using feedback from a large group of people, men and women, a picture of the perfect breast was built. This is now known as the 45/55 principle in respect of the relationship between the volume of the breast in the upper/lower pole. This now gives Mr Mallucci a blueprint of the ideal outcome for his patients who want for example breast augmentation. Mr Mallucci believes a natural breast is the result most patients want and his work on the perfect breast has resonated with patients and surgeons all around the world. It was presented extensively on various continents and won awards on the international stage. It is work such as this which sets Mr Mallucci aside from general plastic surgeons who do not focus on specific areas of the body in such finite detail.

Mallucci London is now the new home for Mr Mallucci and The Perfect Breast. All the surgeons and practitioners at Mallucci London focus on their own specific area. Why go to a generalist when you can go for a specialist? For a consultation with any or our surgeon or practitioners, call us on 0203 915 7400

I suffer from super sensitive skin and Kully recommended a product which has helped me to see a real difference. My skin health has improved and is stronger in its own kind of way.

There are so many places doing laser hair removal. It is rare to find one where the practitioner takes such care with every patient. I would wholeheartedly recommend Kully and Mallucci London.
