Sveta Bilyalova demonstrated the technique, which Express.co.uk can reveal – with the help of a plastic surgeon – does in fact work.
“What we need, we need two phones with a flash light. We put the phones under her shirt and turn off the light,” Sveta says in the video that was posted to Instagram.
Sveta does exactly what she describes in the video, putting two phones with the flashlight turned on under her friend’s very large breasts.
The light shines though the volunteer’s skin, glowing a bright red.
“Do you see it? It’s so beautiful they shine red. The silicone shines bright red,” Sveta, who has 4.7 million Instagram followers, says.
When the same is tried on a woman with real breasts the tissue does not glow.
“Don’t forget to check your friends,” Sveta adds in the video, which has been viewed over 2m times.
A plastic surgeon exclusively told Express.co.uk that there is some truth to Sveta’s video.
Dr Tatiana Lapa, a Harley Street based GP said: “If you were to shine a bright light on breasts with a silicon implant inside them the whole breast would light up.
“This is because silicon is a clear gel whereas the fibrous tissue of a real breast would prevent so much light from getting though; meaning that it would most likely just shine around the edges.
“Also, the colour of the light would slightly differ between the two – real breasts would shine more of a red/pinkish colour because of the blood vessels that flow through them, whereas breast implants would show up a more brighter orange tone.”
While breast enlargement surgery is still one of the most popular cosmetic procedures, more and more women are turning their attention to their nipples.
Surgeons have seen a 30 per cent rise in women requesting a smaller nipple size and cup size requests plummeting from DD to a natural C.
Research by The Plastic Surgery Group has shown that there is a new trend towards patients choosing smaller nipple sizes when undergoing breast surgery.
The Express revealed there are scientific reasons why humans are so concerned with breasts.
Apparently, a woman’s chest resembles a shapely derrière, and that is why men can’t stop staring.
Biological anthropologist Bobbi S. Low says the buttocks “evolved in the context of females competing for the attention and parental commitment of powerful resource-controlling males” as an “honest display of fat reserves.”
Sexologist Alfred Kind says that attraction to breasts stems from their similarity to the buttocks.
This urge most likely developed around the time human beings started having sex face-to-face.
