A “super boob job” is defined as an increase in four or more cup sizes in one cosmetic procedure. To put that in context, it’s like going from a B cup to at least an F cup overnight. Which is insane when you think about how much extra breast weight you’d be carrying on your chest. According to the latest stats, super augmentations have doubled in the UK since 2010. They now constitute 10 percent of all breast augmentations.
Further complicating the matter, plastic surgeons say that women want natural-looking super boob jobs — practically an oxymoron. To have Christina Hendricks-sized boobs that look like Victoria Beckham’s breasts is nearly impossible. “Women want bigger, more pert breasts, but they don’t necessarily want people to know they’ve had something done,” said cosmetic surgeon, Miles Berry. Sigh. More impossible beauty standard to live up to. [Daily Mail UK]
A 40-year-old woman in Moscow must be extremely happy with her decision to get silicon breast implants five years ago. And not just because her tatas look great in a tank top. Apparently, her implants saved her life. When she and her husband got in a fight earlier this week, he flew into a rage, picked up a knife and stabbed her in the left breast, apparently going for her heart. But because of her implants, the knife didn’t reach her vital organs. Her surgeon confirmed that if she hadn’t had a boob job, she would have died in the stabbing. Egads. [Gawker]
Bizarrely, this isn’t the first woman who owes her life to her implants. More cases after the jump.

It figures a mother who made headlines when she taught her six-year-old daughter to pole dance would find another way to make the news: Sarah Burge of the UK gave her girl, Poppy, a voucher for breast implants on her 7th birthday. Burge, who is known as “the Human Barbie” for her slavish devotion to her plasticine looks, said Poppy can cash in her boob job after she turns 16 and her natural boobs have grown in. Do I even need to write about how promising an elementary schooler that she can get a boob job is really f**ked up? No? Cool.

The world laughed when Heidi Montag said that she felt like she was trapped in her own body because of her enormo breast implants. But I totally understand what she’s talking about.
At 25, I had lost a large amount of weight and my body fat percentage was drastically reduced in a short period of time. This worked wonders for my ass, but wreaked havoc on my chest. I remarked to my girlfriends one night after a few too many drinks that I had tiger nipples. This description, complete with claws and roaring noises, was a reference to the stretch marks that cut deep swaths in my once firm skin. I was in an unhealthy relationship at the time and at the urging of my partner, I decided to do something about my prematurely sagging breasts. Keep reading »
“I love my new boobs. They’re so perky. I feel fantastic! … I had my nipple moved up half an inch, so my boobs were lifted without having a scar from the nipple to underneath the breast. I went to the Bahamas with Kandi, Sheree and our kids eight days after the procedure. I went down a water slide and tore some of the stitches. I felt a sharp pain in my left breast but didn’t realize how serious it was until the bandages came off and there was a tear around my nipple. I had to go back to get it fixed.”
