Pamela Anderson's breasts have become a large part of her career. I have been interviewed by numerous media sources regarding the status of her breasts, most recently by Life and Style Weekly. Pam Anderson started out way back when with breasts likely in the C-cup range. While making it big on "Baywatch," her breasts increased in size along with her career to most likely DD range. In 1999, she had the implants removed and replaced with smaller ones, bringing her closer to a D. These smaller implants were then exchanged for larger ones soon thereafter. She currently appears to retain these larger DD implants, which after viewing several photos are likely in the 500-550 cc range, and possibly larger.
Why did Pamela return to the larger implants after decreasing in size? I have two thoughts on this.
First, Pamela's image is all about excess. She is the only mainstream Hollywood actress who has a porn star's body. She has tattoos, large augmented lips, massive breasts, and flowing blond hair. Her image is over the top, and carries through to most parts of her public life. Her boyfriends are "dangerous" rockers such as Tommy Lee and Kid Rock. She even released an erotica novel at a similar time as Jenna Jameson, the porn star who is on the verge of mainstream but never quite gets there, unlike Pam. It is possible that her breasts are essential to her image and career, like Angelina Jolie's lips, Cindy Crawford's mole, and Fergie's hump and bumps.
The second thought comes strictly from a plastic surgery standpoint. The changes a breast implant makes on a breast's skin is, for the most part, irreversible. It is possible that the larger implants stretched her breast skin to the point where the smaller implants did not fill them up very well, resulting in droopy breasts. The only ways to treat this are to perform a breast lift (which creates scars on the breast) or to replace the implants with larger ones to fill the breast skin better. I could not see Pamela undergoing a breast lift, because she would no longer want to be filmed topless, as these scars are usually very visible for a year or two. Therefore, it is likely she just had them replaced with what she had before.
Although most women I see are not interested in getting breasts her size, I do believe they work well for her.
