Non-surgical boob job aims to suck them in

It sounds like a medieval torture technique. Two semi-rigid plastic domes are affixed to the breasts, and connected to a battery-operated computerised vacuum device. The device is worn for 10 hours a day for 10 weeks – and if the woman misses a day, she must wear it for an additional week.

But it’s actually a non-surgical breast enhancement, coming to a cosmetic surgeon near you.

It works, doctors say, by using suction to expand the soft tissue of the breast, a technique tribal societies have used for centuries for various physical effects.

“It’s not primitive at all,” said Dr Ronald Goedeke, the medical director for BRAVA, the company marketing the system. “The women have control, it’s safe, no scars and it works.”

The device, which costs $3200 initially, plus $495 for an extra set of breast-domes once the patient has outgrown the originals, will be launched in Australia next week. Women who follow the product instructions can expect an average breast enlargement of 100 cubic centimetres, roughly equivalent to one bra cup size. There is no risk of breast cancer, according to initial studies.
