Venezuelan President Takes A Hard Stance Against Fake Boobs

Big fake titties? American politicians can’t get enough of ‘em. But Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez is firmly anti-breast implants. Speaking on a United Nations summit on great racks a state-run television station, Chavez railed against plastic surgeons who “convince some women that if they don’t have some big bosoms they should feel bad.” Chavez added that some women in Venezuela, where the breast implant business is booming, will get plastic surgery even if they’re struggling to make ends meet, which he called a “monstrous thing.” Hmm, I guess the president is not a fan of Venezuelan beauty pageants, then.

The Frisky called the White House for a comment on Obama’s stance on fake boobs. We have yet to hear back by press time. [TIME] Keep reading »

Why Some Women Stay Wide Awake While Getting Breast Implants

I step into the doctor’s office for a simple checkup and want the highest drugs possible to knock me out. But some women are getting breast implants and staying wide awake during the invasive surgery. Yowza! Said Kelly McCoy of Plano, Texas, a 23-year-old who had her B-cup breasts enlarged to C-cups, “Just the fact that I don’t have to undergo general anesthesia and the fact that I get to have a hand in seeing what the end result is going to be was like a huge selling point to me.” Apparently, not getting anesthesia is worth being able to give “final approval” to your plastic surgeon while you’re under the knife. So, how painful is undergoing plastic surgery while wide awake? Keep reading »

Girl Talk: My Triple-D Disaster

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 »

Woman With World’s Largest Breasts Finally Has Her Circus Boobs Removed

Earlier this summer, the world met Sheyla Hershey of Houston, Texas, who possesses the world’s biggest breasts. Sheyla’s knockers measure in at 38KKK, courtesy of some sketchy-sounding surgery that took place in Brazil because plastic surgery laws there are looser. Alas, Sheyla learned the hard way that carrying around a gallon of silicone in your ta- tas is dangerous when they developed a staph infection. Keep reading »

Politician Raffles Off A Boob Job To Raise Campaign Cash

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 »

12 Celebs Who’ve Denied Getting Breast Implants

Elizabeth Hurley
Can’t a girl lie around in a bikini without getting hit with boob job rumors? Liz Hurley took to her Twitter page this week to deny she’s gone under the knife. “I read that I’ve just had breast implants,” she tweeted. “Happy to report (I’m) still au naturel but I do wear exceptionally cut bikinis.” (Incidentally, Hurley also owns a swimwear line. Product plug!) [StarPulse] I think I believe her, but the funny thing about boob jobs is that no matter how obvious they are, the boob job recipient tends to deny them anyway. We rounded up a few busty offenders.

Should You Get Breast Implants For Your Porn-Loving Boyfriend?

Over at Slate, advice columnist Dear Prudence tackles an epic question of breast proportions: Should a woman get a boob job because her boyfriend is a fan of all the big breasts that he sees in porn movies? “I am a B cup,” she writes, “and although he says he loves my body, he adds, ‘But I’d really like it if your breasts were larger.’” How’s she know that? He watches porn on the regular, because, he says, he prefers a different body type to hers. Oh, and she used to be a model. So. Yeah. Prudie suggests she ask her man if he’s interested in getting penis enlargement surgery, and then, maybe! And also tell him to basically shove it. And to not get implants. Which Prudie thinks will make him feel relieved. Which I am not so sure about. I guess I feel like if you are writing to an advice columnist about whether or not you should get breast implants because your boyfriend watches a lot of porn, you should spend less time writing to advice columnists and more time finding a new man. But, you know, I’m not an advice columnist. [Slate] Keep reading »

If there’s one thing I like more than a boobs story, it’s a deadly boobs story.

Last year she told the Houston station KRIV, “I want to look better each day, every day. Everybody’s got a dream inside, you know? And it’s good when you can make your dream come true.” Keep reading »
