Big is out, it would appear - at least as far as breasts are concerned.

The days of bra-busting boob jobs are coming to an end, plastic surgeons revealed yesterday.

Far fewer women now want to 'do a Jordan' and inflate their bosoms to epic proportions.

Instead, more are opting for a less pronounced enlargement to attain the full, yet smaller, look of models such as Nell McAndrew.

A decade ago, when Baywatch was at its height and Pamela Anderson a world icon, almost six in ten breast enlargement patients went up three or more cup sizes. That figure is now just one in four.

Two-thirds of patients now go up two cup sizes, compared with 40 per cent in

1994. And 11 per cent increase just one cup size, up from two per cent.

Even glamour model Jordan, who owes much of her success to her outrageouslyenhanced chest, has recently indicated that she would like to downsize to more moderate assets.

The figures came from The Harley Medical Group, which has ten clinics across the country.

Director Louise Braham stressed that, despite the marked change in size preferences, breast enlargements were as popular as ever and accounted for more than a third of all procedures at Harley. 'It has been the most popular cosmetic surgery treatment throughout our 22-year history and remains so, followed by liposuction and rhinoplasty (nose jobs),' she added.

'Our research also shows that 64 per cent of all respondents said that the cosmetic treatment was one of the best things they've ever done.' Most breast enlargement patients - 85 per cent - are aged between 25 and 35.
