Heidi Montag Shows Off Surgery Scars, Compares Herself To Edward Scissorhands

Heidi Montag is really trying to elicit sympathy for the scars she says 10 plastic surgeries caused. She has a scar below her chin from a chin reduction, a scar in her hairline, scars on her breast, one below her butt cheek, two bald spots, and lumps from liposuction on her legs, butt, and lower back. Heidi says she regrets having all this elective surgery in an interview with Life & Style. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Girl Talk: My Bikini Waxer Suggested I Get Liposuction

I am a hairy person. Think of the hairiest person you know, then think hairier. Think “Harry and the Hendersons” hairy. Anytime I am within a tongue depressor’s distance of an aesthetician, they find something new to wax. (This is how I learned the hard way that upper-lip waxing is not something you should agree to do lightly.) I’m super laid-back in the vanity department, so I am pretty used to waxers offering — nay, begging — to rip hot wax off my eyebrows, my upper lip, my arms, my legs and my lady parts. What I am not used to, however, is the suggestion that I fly to Colombia to get liposuction. Keep reading »

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 »

Want To Enhance Your Appearance With A Vampire Facelift?

OK, the vampire craze has officially gone too far. The original obsession over Edward and Jacob was understandable, “True Blood” still makes us swoon, and it was even OK when “The Vampire Diaries” hit TV. But now, thanks to the newest trend in plastic surgery, vampires officially need to go away. Doctors are offering a new facelift treatment thanks to a cosmetic filler called Selphyl. Sure, nothing new there, as women (and men) looking to appear younger will always resort to cosmetic enhancements, but this is special. Selphyl has been nicknamed the “vampire facelift” because the main ingredient is actually your own blood. Ew. It’s being touted as a more natural option because the ingredients are in fact a part of your own body already, but this is clearly not a procedure for the weak. You’ll not only need to undergo needles for the Selphyl filler, but the doctor will have to withdraw your own blood before the procedure takes place. Isn’t this just like injecting yourself with … yourself? Who wants to pay for that? [ABC] Keep reading »

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 »

Moob Reduction Is The Fastest Growing Cosmetic Surgery

One of my male friends in high school had a not-so-secret shame and we both made fun of each other for the same thing — having big boobs. The rumor was that he got his moobs from smoking too much weed during puberty, but they weren’t a big deal because he was still adorable. But then one day, I went to cop a feel and the moobs were gone! I was kind of heartbroken. While I’ve considered a reduction, he’d actually gone through with it, without even telling me! While I wanted to call him a traitor, he did feel better about himself. You might be surprised to learn that male breast reduction has been the most increasingly popular cosmetic surgery in the past two years in the U.K. It’s not the most popular surgery for men yet, since rhinoplasty (nose job) and blepharoplasty (surgery on the skin around the eyes) are most common, but man-boob surgery has increased 80 percent since 2008.

Amy Winehouse’s Breasts Aren’t The Only Body Parts To Get Plumped

Amy Winehouse was spotted leaving a doctor’s office, and don’t her lips look a little fuller? I’m so happy she’s taking an interest in her appearance now, but maybe she should hold off on all the cosmetic surgery before she develops another addiction. [London, 11/5/09] Keep reading »

To Bag Or Not To Bag George Clooney

I love being a woman, but there are plenty of things I envy about the opposite sex, too. The whole standing up when they pee thing is pretty convenient (as are their short lines for public bathrooms!), but what’s especially nice for guys is how well they age. Let’s face it, appearance-wise, women tend to peak pretty early in their adulthood, but a lot of men really get better with age. They look distinguished, not haggard. Take George Clooney, for example. The guy’s nearing 50 and he’s never looked better, which is why I was pretty surprised to hear he allegedly had blepharoplasty surgery to remove the bags under his eyes. I thought he looked sexy with a little puffiness — like he spent the whole night drinking Scotch on the rocks and doing it with his younger girlfriend and couldn’t be bothered to get any sleep. Take a look at the photographic evidence and tell me what you think. Better with bags or without? Personally, I’d like to spread him on my dinner roll either way. [via Daily Mail] Keep reading »

Tongue Patch Makes Eating So Horrific You Get Mad Skinny

Just can’t stop yourself from eating the three solid meals a day that are totally making you F-A-T? Can’t afford costly stomach stapling and/or Courtney Love‘s favorite detox spa? Have we got a solution for you! California cosmetic surgeon Dr. Nikolas Chugay (interesting name) has developed a wildly innovative weight loss tool. He’ll sew a mesh patch over your tongue, which makes eating food so excruciatingly painful that patients are forced to stick to a liquid diet. Ten whole patients have been crazy desperate brave enough to try it and some lost “as much as 20 pounds” a month after the surgery. Kinda makes exercise and salads sound appealing, no? For patients who can’t make it out to see Dr. Chugay, we’ve got another solution: Simply imagining there is a mesh patch on your tongue is a total appetite killer! [Chicago Tribune] Keep reading »
