Ali: Surgery? Expert ANswers

It appears Nicole Richie is looking a little more busty these days. In new shots of the reality star turned fashion designer, her bikini does look rather plentiful.

An insider tells the new issue of Us Weekly (out today) that Richie got breast implants over the summer.

Celebuzz turned to Dr. Gabriel Chiu of Beverly Hills Plastic Surgery to get his expert opinion. NOTE: Dr. Chiu has never treated Nicole; his assessment is based on analyzing numerous before and after photos.

"Nicole has definitely had a breast augmentation," Dr. Chiu tells Celebuzz. "In her angled before photos, she is nearly flat-chested in the upper half of her breasts. In the after photos, not only does she have volume in the upper half, but she has a more pleasing rounded shape that is not caused by any support of her bikini top. In the head-on photos, Nicole definitely has a cleavage that is not present in her before photo. The curved shape of her cleavage and her lateral breasts are very natural for a teenage girl with perky breasts, but not for someone who has had a child and didn’t have full breasts to begin with."

As far as the alleged augmentation, he adds that Nicole made a good choice (we gotta say, girlfriend looks good)!

"I must say that she chose an implant size that compliments her frame well and has a very natural look, which are results that I advocate for all patients," Dr. Chiu adds. "Any woman who is interested in having fuller or bigger breasts is a candidate for breast augmentation. The key is to choose your size and shape carefully so that the implants complement your figure. Everyone has a range of implant sizes that can work well--- and as you go higher in that range, you tend to look longer, leaner, and better balanced; proportionate. When you go too large and pass that range, you will tend to look heavier and appear to be leaning forward, neither of which is attractive! Moral of the story is to choose your plastic surgeon wisely -- someone who not only has the skill and experience to give you a very good result, but has the eye to give you the best result."

    I could but then I would be flat chested like Nicole and I dont love her that much.

  • AlaBella

    If it were just food, her boobs were not the only part of her body to have grown. She would've been all-around curvier

  • wholelottalove

    joescro, you should have offered her a portion of your tata's as you seem to have more than enough to go around!

  • joescro

    Its about time she got some junk in that chest, with all that money I was wondering how long it was going to take.

    Tufenuf55 -- 98lbs and an A cup, now youre a C cup and weigh what? 155? ok... it does happen :) "Give her a break" - what are you 12? no one is busting on her. The Dr was just stating the obvious. At least she didnt make them DDs.

  • tufenuf55

    I was only 98 lbs. when I first got pregnant and cup size A. After first baby went to B cup; 2nd baby a C cup. It can happen. She's had two kids. Give her a break.

    Ya im sorry Dumas1000 but eating a few cheeseburgers doesn't send all the weight into your breasts and nowhere else. The girl had plastic surgery. Who cares! If i had her money and tiny tata's id have implants too!

    Enough with all the plastic surgery junk. This is the effect that food or lack thereof has on a woman's body. Nicole Richie, Lindsay Lohan, Ali Lohan. None of these women have had plastic surgery. Just look at pictures of Demi Lovato from now and a year ago. It sure looks as if Demi has had plastic surgery too. Only she hasn't. She decided it was time to eat something. That's all. Maybe Nicole Richie swallowed a couple of cheeseburgers.
