Plastic surgeons have reached a truly DIY medical breakthrough in Britain: cutting fat from a woman’s thighs and tummy and pasting it on her titties. Ladies who allow surgeons to play Mrs. Potato Head with their breasts can potentially shoot up three cup sizes. The “two-in-one op,” as it’s being called, will be widely available in Britain next year for around $13,000 and is currently being tested in the U.S.
It’s true that these so-called “natural breast enlargements” don’t involve the dodgy silicone used in most boob jobs, which has been known to harden over time and feel fake. But it’s still plastic surgery, which isn’t “natural” at all! Besides, how much would it suck if the layers of fat that the doctor redistributed from your thighs turned out to be the dreaded cellulite and it made your tits all wrinkly and pucker-y? Is that really worth a C-cup, ladies? [Times Of London] Keep reading »
Once upon a time, Drew Barrymore was referred to as voluptuous, Posh Spice‘s bosom practically spilled out of her dress, and Lindsay Lohan suddenly had the biggest boobs in town. It seems like ages since any tabloid made a ruckus over yet another celeb getting breast implants, and, let’s face it, Hollywood has always had a thing for the well-endowed starlet. So, where have all the big breasts gone? Have huge chests gone out of style? Keep reading »
There’s been plenty of talk of airbrushing in the news this week, and we have no doubt that 51-year-old Sharon Stone‘s bod was given the same treatment for this Paris Match cover. They certainly didn’t skimp on the body oil, that’s for damn sure. In spite of all of Stone’s cuckoo banana antics (or maybe because of them), we still kind of love her, and agree that in general, despite the Botox, boob jobs and who knows what else, she looks pretty smokin’. That said, do you find it to be totally effed that being “body confident at age 50!” basically has to involve plastic surgery — you know, in the celebrity magazine world, anyway? Maybe in addition to airbrushing labels, there should be plastic surgery warnings slapped on ads and glossy spreads, too.
Uhrm yeah, I guess that’s all we really have to say here, except one also might add that if you’re gonna get a boob job, this seems like a fairly tasteful size, no? Keep reading »
Maxi Mounds, who hails from Long Island, NY, holds the Guinness World Record for “World’s Largest Augmented Breasts.” It took four surgeries for Maxi to get to her 61MMM size, according to Spike TV’s “MANswers.” She says she started “dancing” to pay for school but decided she liked being naked more than studying. She also claims that her measurements are 156MMM-26-36, but we’ll go with the more conservative breast measurement because we can’t possibly see how Maxi would be able to stand upright with 156MMM breasts. Maxi gets major attention on the web, TV, and in strip clubs, but she says the one downside to such ginormous boobs is that she can no longer sleep on her stomach. Bummer. Keep reading »
Who’s your nipple role model?
Have no idea what we’re talking about? Good. You haven’t been brainwashed by yet another plastic surgery trend we don’t understand: nipple surgery to change the shape, color or size of your areolae. Keep reading »
The global financial crises has forced every industry to get a little creative. Rather than go with the stodgy “buy one get one free” approach of many struggling industries, the Czech health care system is wooing its nurses with unusual pizazz. Like most countries around the world, the Czech Republic’s health care system is teetering on the brink of collapse, in part due to the nursing shortage. The Czech Republic is in a particular bind: Nurses are emigrating to other countries for better pay and opportunity while fewer people are training to become nurses due to the negative stereotypes left over from communism. The idea of using incentives to encourage employees to renew their contracts is hardly newsworthy. The fact that some Czech medical establishments are using incentives like free breast implants, liposuction and tummy tucks does raise my eyebrows. (Not for long, however, should I decide to become a Czech nurse and opt for a face lift or Botox.) Keep reading »
This weekend there was a marathon of MTV’s “True Life,” all focused on body image issues, which made for an insanely unproductive Saturday for me. On “True Life: I Hate My Small Breasts,” Shacole, 18, was extremely insecure about her 32A cup but didn’t want to get breast implants, despite the fact that her mother really, really thought she should. Shacole’s mother Nicole, who has small breasts, thought her daughter should get her “boobs” enhanced if she wanted a chance at becoming a professional cheerleader — although she was quick to emphasize that wasn’t the reason she thought her daughter should get implants. “You need them,” her mother said. Nicole even suggested that Shacole join her in posting pictures of herself on a website where donors can sponsor breast enhancement surgery for those “in need.” Obviously, Nicole was a terrible mother with no concern over shredding her daughter’s self-esteem, due in no small part to her own insecurities, which she masks in gross, faux-confident exhibitionism. Hooray for Shacole, who didn’t give into her mom’s pressure and instead dealt with her low self-esteem through meditation.
Everyone in this episode of “True Life” referred to breasts as “boobs.” Every time, the entire time. Maybe if these women saw their breasts as part of their bodies, rather than ridiculously nicknamed accessories, they’d be happier with what they have naturally. Keep reading »
Everyone’s still talking about Miss California’s gay marriage comments. Now there’s more drama for 21-year-old beauty queen Carrie Prejean. Apparently, there were some nice perks for her as former Miss California. The state’s pageant organization paid her bill for fake boobs.
Prejean received breast implants paid for by the Miss California Organization just weeks before she competed in the Miss USA pageant, confirmed Shanna Moakler, co-executive director of organization. Shanna told “Access Hollywood” that Carrie wanted breasts implants and the Miss California Organization “supported that decision.” Shanna, herself a former Miss USA and an ex-Playboy Playmate, added, “Breast implants in pageants is not a rarity. It’s definitely not taboo. It’s very common. Breast implants today among young women today is very common.” Keep reading »
The recession is to blame for everything going wrong right now — the rise in foreclosures, the increase in unemployment and the sharp decline in the number of people who want size DD breasts. Plastic surgery numbers are steadily slipping here in the U.S. Americans, who once spent $12 billion a year on cosmetic surgery, are now tightening their budget according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. There’s been a 62% decrease in plastic surgery from 2007-2008. Consumers are hesitating now more than ever before to commit to having the pricey elective procedures done. Doctors in Orange County, Calif., the silicone capital of the world, have reported a 30 to 40 percent decline in business. And breast implant manufacturer Mentor Corp.’s sales have decreased 5 percent during the three months ending Sept. 26 compared to the same period last year. But one country isn’t experiencing a decrease in their numbers. Find out which one, after the jump. Keep reading »
Sure, you may know all about who in Hollywood has fake boobs, but do you know where the whole enhanced-breast trend started? After the jump, a quick history of implants, which date back to the 19th century — way before “Baywatch” was on TV.
