In America, the politicians act like big boobs. But in Venezuala, one politician is raffling them off. Gustavo Rojas is running as an alternate on the country’s General Assembly and is raffling off free breast implants at $6 a ticket to fundraise for his campaign. Rojas admitted his method of fundraising is unusual, but claimed it’s no different than raffling off a TV set. Hmm. The word I’d use would be “opportunistic”: According to the country’s Plastic Surgery Society, 30,000 people got breast implants in 2006. We’ll have to wait until the election at the end of September to find out if auctioning off a new pair of breasts is a bankable campaign strategy. [AP] Keep reading »
A new surgery called TLC Breast Enhancement claims to make the girls bigger and firmer without any needles or cutting. The technique uses an intense light that somehow tricks the body into making more “oestrogen” — a hormone that is produced during puberty and pregnancy. The light, emitted from a gun-like device, creates more tissue, increases blood pressure, promotes microcirculation and thickens connective tissue. It also tightens collagen fibers for some lifting action. If you want gigantic knockers, this surgery is no good because it won’t increase your boobs more than two cup sizes. It’s best for women who have an A to C cup and won’t work on chicks who are already very large. Also, while there are no side effects save for a little tingling, you’ll have to go to several 30-minute sessions to see any result at all. Keep reading »
“No, I have not had implants. A report like that is about as real and truthful as reports that [my husband] Todd and I are divorcing or that I bought a place in the Hamptons or that [my son] Trigg is not my own child. To be judged on or to be talked about on appearance — say chest size — it makes me wear layers, it makes me have to waste time figuring out what am I going to wear so that nobody will look at an area that I don’t need them to look at. I want them to hear what it is that I’m saying. It just ends up wasting time and that’s very, very unfortunate. I think some of those folks, too, they need to perhaps grab a shovel, go down to the Gulf, volunteer to help, clean up and save a whale or something.”
— Sarah Palin on rumors that she’s had a boob job. You know, I hate to say it, but girlfriend’s got a point … though I find it hard to believe the Caribou Barbie’s really spending that much time thinking of how to dress and present herself in a way that makes people pay more attention to what she’s saying than what she looks like.

Remember Debrahlee Lorenzana, who recently filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Citibank? A promotional video for Long Island Plastic Surgical Group featuring Lorenzana has now surfaced, in which she gets her second boob job and says she wants to be — and I quote — “tits on a stick.” Keep reading »
Boston mobster Whitey Bulger is wanted by the FBI in connection with 19 murders—many think he is the person Jack Nicholson’s character in “The Departed” is based on. He and his wife, Catherine Greig, have eluded authorities since 1995, but now, the FBI has a diabolical plot to find them. Greig, before she went on the lam, had a thing for plastic surgery and had her breasts done. She was in the first wave of breast enlargements, and the type of implant she got is now known to break down over time, leaking and causing chest pain. On the assumption that she either (a) will soon have the implant removed or (b) has already done so, the FBI took out a full-page ad in this month’s issue of Plastic Surgery News. “Have You Treated This Woman?” the ad reads. Below it are photos of Greig taken in a plastic surgeon’s office. The ad also contains the ID number of Greig’s implants.
The ad has made quite a splash among plastic surgeons. Keep reading »
