Could singer/actress Katharine McPhee be keeping a plastic surgery secret from her fans and public? In a recent appearance at New York Fashion Week, Katharine caught the attention of many onlookers with larger-than-usual cleavage flowing out of a very low-plunging pink dress. Her “accentuated” breasts left many wondering whether or not she has joined the breast implants club.
The rounded full look of Katharine’s breasts may lead one to immediately believe that they are breast implants. However, looking at photos of Katharine from earlier years until now, a seeming inconsistency in Katharine’s bust-size has been apparent. Make Me Heal has noticed that she favors empire waist and halter dresses and that her favoritism of these styles may have much to do with her often-times more ample appearance in the breast region. In fact, it is on a rather rare occasion that she does make public appearances in dresses without built-in support systems that give the appearance of bigger breasts.
The first two pictures of Katharine are from 2006 and 2007, respectively. In both photos she is wearing a high empire-waist dress. The latter two photos, taken in 2007 and 2008, show Katharine in a bit of a different light. Without the support of her dresses, her breasts appear significantly less abundant, almost one or two cups smaller.
For these reasons, it is quite possible that Katharine’s clothes have been responsible for her larger breasts, as opposed to plastic surgery. Orange County Plastic Surgeon Dr. John Di Saia commented that certain types of garments can give the deceptive appearance of “probably up to a cup or so larger.” Regarding questions about Katharine McPhee’s contrasting breast sizes, Di Saia did confirm that a support top dress can alter the appearance of breast size. “This type of garment simply forces the breast upward usually with an elastic band combined with a pad.”
Whether or not Katharine makes use of the lift method, the possibility remains that she may have had implants at some point during the past few years. Because Katharine McPhee has created some recent publicity with her new film The House Bunny, it seems quite likely that a bit of self-promotion and scene-stealing photo-ops may do her some good. A breast augmentation could certainly be a way for Katherine to gain extra attention.
Because implants can range in sizes, if at some point Katharine did get small breast implants, the images in which she appears to have smaller breasts could be a combination of time passing and the natural progression of breasts to appear flatter a few years after the surgery.
Plastic surgeon Dr. Jennifer Walden comments that: “After looking through several photos of Katharine McPhee, I am unable to determine if she has had breast implants placed or not. If she has, they are conservatively sized and placed in such a way that her natural breast tissue is obscuring it– a well done job in someone who is starting with a moderate amount of breast tissue.”
Since the beginning of 2008, almost all photos of Katharine illustrate her larger breasts. It may well be that her new “style” is simply a new era in her fashion transition: cleavage enhancing, plunging necklines may be her way of standing out amidst all of the competition; or perhaps she is simply choosing to accentuate breast implants that she has already gotten.
It is difficult to say with absolute conviction that Katharine McPhee has breast implants due to the fluctuating size of her breasts. If she has gotten enhanced, the job is very well done and looks subtle and natural, which is something that cannot be said for many of Katharine McPhee’s Hollywood peers. For now, we’ll make sure to keep an eye on Katharine’s changing dress style and perhaps find out what the secret to her changing breast size may be.
