As television shows go back in time, some casting directors are looking for hot women without breast implants. This is no easy task in plastic surgery cities like Miami, according to the casting director for the new show Magic City.
Magic City takes place in Miami in 1959, before the days of breast augmentation. Finding local talent who fit that criteria is no easy task for casting director of the show.
“I’ve actually had better luck finding synchronized swimming groups than I did finding real boobs,” local extras casting director Bill Marinella tells the Miami Herald. “We did a lot of research and reached out to burlesque clubs and just finding people on the beach and literally walking up to them on the street and saying, ‘Hey, you look like you’re right out of The Great Gatsby.’”
Although some women prefer the “fake” look, many women still retain a natural look, even after breast augmentation.
Dr. David Shafer, celebrity plastic surgeon in New York City says, ”My goal with plastic surgery is to achieve a natural result. There are too many surgeons out there making people look fake – which we have all see in the news. With breast implants, the goal is to choose an implant that is appropriate for the patient’s body size and anatomy. In our office we use the VECTRA 3D imaging system to show patients a 3D simulation of what they can look like after surgery. In New York City, the trend is for more natural appearing outcomes. In cities such as Miami and LA, there seems to be a higher percentage of patients with oversized implants.”
Not wanting breast implants is a common request of filmmakers looking to cast for period pieces. For Pirates, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides,”directed by Rob Marshall and starring Johnny Depp, filmmakers sent out a casting call requesting, “beautiful female fit models. Must be 5ft7in-5ft8in, size 4 or 6, no bigger or smaller. Age 18-25. Must have a lean dancer body. Must have real breasts. Do not submit if you have implants.” (See Make Me Heal’s story on Disney Not Casting Breast Implants).
