"It’s not a getting-your-hair-blown-out-kind of thing," says Rowe. "I really designed this as a method to find out if breast implants are for you, what size you want, and what it’s going to feel like. I didn’t envision it as, 'Hey, I have a party tonight and I really want to fill out that dress' or 'I want to stick it to my old boyfriend.'"

Breast augmentations continue to be the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that close to 300,000 women in the United States had a boob job in 2013, which typically costs upwards of $10,000 a procedure. InstaBreast, the bigger boobs for a day treatment, is reported to cost from $2,500 to $3,500.

"InstaBreast takes around 15 to 20 minutes, during which a saline solution is injected directly into the breasts to immediately create bigger boobs that last for up to 24 hours. The solution is eventually absorbed—and wait for it… excreted from your body when you pee.
"The area is numbed before the injection, and Rowe says that while there shouldn't be any pain, some patients have experienced a little bruising (similar to when you've gotten a shot or had blood drawn), which goes away in about a day or so."
Rowe says InstaBreast takes the guesswork out of getting implants and prevents the buyer's remorse that some women experience after augmentation. He claims there are no short-term or long-term side effects to the procedure.
Still, other board-certified plastic surgeons claim "it's probably OK" but women shouldn't take chances with their breasts.
In fact, some surgeons claim pumped-up breasts wouldn't even feel the same as implants. Tracy Pfeifer, M.D., a board-certified plastic surgeon in New York City, says, "The problem with that is when you’re injecting fluid into the breast, it’s very amorphous -- whereas an implant has a shape."
Pfeifer also has concerns that InstaBreast downplays how serious any surgery is, whether it's an invasive procedure or not. All surgery is potentially high risk. “I just don’t see the point of it,” she says. Pfeifer continues, "So the benefit to have any risks at all needs to be very high. What is the benefit? Your breasts are a little bigger for a couple hours?"
Also worth noting: Macrolane, a compound used specifically as a breast injectable, was banned in the U.K. in 2012 because it was thought to cause lumps that made it hard to read mammograms. Rowe says the types of fillers he uses don't pose this risk.
And, ever the entrepreneur, Rowe is currently working on an extended version of InstaBreast, which he says has been dubbed "vacation breasts" by the media. This procedure would allow patients to test-run a bigger breast size for a longer period of time—weeks instead of a day—before they decide whether or not to get implants.
What The ??
I don't understand the insanity of the "bigger is better" body part mania. Bigger breasts, bigger penises, bigger butts -- what is the matter with being satisfied with what God gave you and then exercising, dieting, and employing other non-surgical, non-pharmaceutical measures to naturally enhance any part of your physique?
I get the whole "boost my confidence" argument; however, vanity is so unattractive and normally insatiable. I strongly believe, and I'm speaking from a man's point of view, all sizes of breasts are beautiful. And, anyway, many men are not overly enamored by ginormous, Egyptian-pyramid-size hooters. Many are hopelessly attracted to other feminine qualities. A confident woman who uses her best natural, physical attributes to sport her unique attractiveness is irresistible.
How in the hell can 24-hour bigger boob blowouts do anything to convince women to enhance their breasts? Instant gratification and then just "piss a few thousand dollars away"? This makes me angrier than a Republican on Obama care. I'd like to shoot Dr. Rowe with a gallon or two of his own medicine.
Seriously, I just think it's time to end "bigger" artificial adoration. If you must continue to swallow the "mine is bigger, therefore, better than yours" myth, fine. Befriend, date, mate, and marry those who share your views and leave the rest of us to marvel and enjoy beautiful reasonability.
InstaBreast, indeed. What is the next quick fix for narcissistic pleasure? You are thinking the same thing I am, aren't you? I'm sure some money-grabbing plastic surgeons are already devising both an InstaDong and an InstaVajayjay surgical enhancement for temporary employment. I'm sure these procedures would be just the thing for weekend flings in Vegas or South Beach.
