Did Kate Hudson Really Get Breast Implants?

Earlier today, we included Kate Hudson in our list of proud members of the itty bitty titty committee. But it turns out that Kate might actually not be so proud of her little bee stings — rumors have been circling that Hudson got her A-cups taken up a notch with the help of a plastic surgeon. Personally, I don’t see much a difference and, frankly, it could just be the work of a decent bra. Then again, maybe we’ve gotten so used to celebs supersizing their racks (hello, Heidi Montag) that when someone decides to just go up a cup size (rather than, oh, 10), we hardly notice. Whatever, I cannot believe I have already spent 115 words (117!) discussing Kate Hudson’s boobs. [Bumpshack] [Photos: Splash News] Keep reading »

Imagine This: Being Conscious During Breast Implant Surgery?!

There’s a growing trend in how breast implant procedures are being conducted, reports the New York Times—awake surgeries. Instead of putting you out under general anesthesia, doctors and patients are electing to use local anesthetics in the breasts instead. On the patient’s side of thing, the reason is clear: She wants to make sure she’s happy with how her boobs look in order to avoid another corrective surgery. Says one doctor who works this way: “They are talking to me the entire time.” (About what, we’d like to know!) “Once the new implants are in, his patients are propped up on the operating table, look in a mirror and have their say.” Keep reading »

Today’s Lady News: France Recalls Silicon Breast Implants Over Rupturing

  • France has pulled a type of silicon gel breast implant after a French regulatory agency cited increased cases of the implants rupturing. The implants are manufactured in France by a company called PIP but are exported to 66 countries. Women with the recalled implants are advised to see their surgeon for an examination and have regular ultrasounds. [AP] [AP]
  • Police arrested Erlyndon Joseph Lo, 27, of Plano, Texas, on Saturday for threatening deadly force against a Dallas abortion clinic. The day before, Lo had filed a court document at the Plano federal courthouse announcing his intention to go to the Southwestern Women’s Surgery Center in Dallas and “use deadly force to defend the innocent life of another human being.” His court filing sought a restraining order against law enforcement. His two charges are using interstate commerce to communicate a threat, and threatening force to intimidate and interfere with clients and employees of a reproductive health service. If convicted, Lo faces up to six years in prison. FBI agents said threatening and erratic behavior by Lo in recent months had already put him on their radar. [Dallas Morning News]

Boob Job Thief Gets Busted

Crazy boob job stories are everywhere these days and we have one more to add. Yet another woman has gone too far in an effort to make her girls bigger. In 2008, California woman Yvonne Jean Pampellonne, 30, used someone else’s identity to get a $12,000 line of credit so she could get breast implants, liposuction and other procedures. On Monday, the so-called “Implant Bandit” was found guilty of second degree burglary, grand theft and identity theft, which landed her six months in jail. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that no matter how good she looks, it wasn’t worth it. [AP] Keep reading »

“I Spent $8,500 On A Boob Job”

What do you do when you’re athletic and muscular and, well, small-chested? If you’re 30-year-old Susan Combs, you sock money away. “I started a ‘boob fund,’” says Combs, who lives in New York City. “I own my own business, and I said to myself, when I get enough money, that’s going to be my executive bonus for the year. I’m just going to do it.” Read more Keep reading »

People Actually Got Less Plastic Surgery Last Year

Not that you’d know if from the Heidi Montag Freakshow, but fewer Americans had plastic surgeries last year than four years before. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, operations dropped 19 percent from 2005 to 2009, from 2.1 million procedures to 1.9 million. Unfortunately, the ASAPS hypothesizes the recession is the reason why fewer Americans went under the knife — not because we collectively got a healthier body image. Even Dr. Elliot Jacobs, a Park Avenue plastic surgeon interviewed by the London Guardian newspaper, said (gleefully, we can assume), “As long as a woman or a man has a mirror available, there will be a continued interest in plastic surgery.” Depressing.

Today’s Lady News: “Pirates Of The Caribbean 4″ Casting Says No To Fake Breasts

  • An alleged casting call for “Pirates of the Caribbean 4″ told pirate wench wannabes to leave their big boobs at home. Moviehole.com claims a casting call for extras had these specific requirements: “Beautiful Female Fit Models. Must be 5’7-5’8, Size 4 or 6 – NO BIGGER OR SMALLER. Age 18-25. Must have a lean dancer body. MUST have real breasts. Do not submit if you have implants.” It’s great they are embracing a more “natural” look, but other than that, looks like same-old, same-old in the casting department. [Moviehole]
  • Lawmakers are pushing for “potty parity” at D.C. federal buildings. The bill would require a 1-to-1 ratio of male and female restrooms be required when new buildings go up for renovation, if feasible. [ABC News]
  • Legislators in Missouri discussed a bill yesterday that would ask a woman to provide the “medical, social or economic reason” she sought an abortion. The woman would not have to provide a response, however. State Senator Sen. Tom Dempsey (R-St. Peters) said he thought the information would be useful for politicians who create legislation on abortion. [KOAM-TV]

Plastic Surgeon Allegedly Gives Woman The Wrong Breast Implants

Hey, Brittany Daly of Steubenville, Ohio? You need to give Maria Alaimo of Staten Island — the woman whose plastic surgeon accidentally gave her four boobs — a call stat. Y’all need to start a club or something for victims of boob jobs gone wrong! On Friday, Daly filed a $300,000 malpractice lawsuit claiming Dr. Beverly Carl, of Bridgewater, PA, caused her “physical and emotional discomfort” when she gave her the wrong implants in a 2008 boob job.

Women Suicide Bombers Hiding Bombs In Their Breast Implants

According to British intelligence agencies, terrorists claim that women suicide bombers are undergoing surgery to have bombs put in their breast implants. Rather than hide a bulky bomb under clothing or in a satchel, a body-implanted explosive device would defy any external check. But is it possible to have explosives inserted into a breast implant? Dr. Craig Person, a plastic surgeon in Maryland, says yes. “You could certainly put a liquid of any kind in a saline device, and a gel implant theoretically could be opened and replaced with a different type of gel,” Person says, and such a substance would be difficult to detect with a scanner. How to detonate such a device likely remains problematic for aspiring breast implant terrorists, though. “What we’ve seen is, at least, the al Qaeda explosives competence, while they are visionary with their devices, they’re not terribly competent with actually being able to get something to detonate,” says terrorism expert and CEO of BERG Associates Larry C. Johnson. For now, breast implant terror remains undetonated. [Detroit Free Press] Keep reading »
