A Doctor Is Developing Breast Implants That Will Last For Just Two Weeks

He calls them "vacation breasts."

Are you in the Itty Bitty Titty Committee, but also a commitment-phobe? New York-based plastic surgeon Dr. Norman Rowe is developing a new kind of injection that can make breasts bigger for just two or three weeks.

Rowe has already developed a saline procedure that gives patients bigger assets for 24 hours, which he has coined "insta-breasts."

After 24 hours, the bigger breasts deflate back to their normal size.

"Twenty-four hours is great," Rowe told ABC News, "but it's still just 24 hours."

Around $2,500, the insta-breasts procedure ends up costing about $100 an hour (as illustrated by this helpful ABC graphic). He expects the new procedure, which he told ABC News he's calling "vacation breasts," to cost even less.

But it also depends on how in-demand the process is, he said.

People might be interested in temporarily larger breasts if they have a special occasion, like a wedding or vacation, Rowe explained, or if they're considering getting implants.

"You can use 3D imaging and put implants in bras," he said, "but it's another thing to see what the weight will actually feel like and what it will be like to live with the new breasts."

Two of his insta-breast patients (the effect is seen below) have already done the augmentation twice while deciding whether to get surgery.

But it could be awhile until the new procedure is available, with Rowe explaining that he's still discussing new technology with the FDA that could still be about two years out.

Though if it does come to the market, he doesn't think the uses for his saline-plus-additive solution, which he declines to reveal the components of, will stop above the belt.

"[The solution] could be used for more than breasts," Rowe said. "Men might want to use it for pec or calf implants."

Until then, here's an easy trick to give yourself some of your own "vacation breasts."
