What Are the Risks of a 24-Hour Boob Job?

By: Dr. Rolando Morales


In today's fast-paced world, instant gratification often feels like the norm, especially regarding beauty and physical appearance. One cosmetic trend gaining traction is the 24-hour boob job. At Morales Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Rolando Morales believes that anyone considering such a procedure must be fully informed. Whether you're intrigued by the concept or want to explore options, read about this temporary breast enhancement method.

What is a 24-hour boob job?

A 24-hour boob job, also known as a temporary or instant boob job, involves injecting saltwater into the soft tissue of the breasts. This creates the look of fuller, tighter breasts with increased cleavage, but only for a short period. The procedure is designed to last about a day or so as the body naturally absorbs the saltwater, gradually returning the breasts to their original size and shape.

How does it differ from traditional breast enhancement methods?

Traditional breast enhancement procedures usually involve surgical implants designed to last many years. On the other hand, a 24-hour boob job is temporary. It gives you fuller breasts for a short period, usually lasting a day or so. The saltwater injected into the breast tissue is gradually absorbed by the body, causing the enhanced appearance to disappear. This temporary breast enhancement may be ideal for special occasions or events, but keep in mind it is not a long-term solution. Similar results may be achievable with a push-up bra.

What are the potential risks of a 24-hour boob job?

While the thought of instant results may sound appealing, there are several risks to consider:

  • Infection: Any time the skin is punctured, there's a risk of infection. Proper sterilization is crucial, but the risk cannot be removed.
  • Asymmetry: Achieving a symmetrical look can be challenging, and discrepancies between the breasts may be noticeable.
  • Allergic reactions: Some individuals may react to the materials used during the procedure.
  • Tissue damage: Putting a needle into a vessel of the beast could be harmful.

What should you do if you're considering a 24-hour boob job?

If the idea of fuller breasts with saltwater injections for a special occasion is tempting, we encourage you to research and consult with your provider or whoever is administering the treatment. Please ensure your provider has your best interest in mind.
