Hey girl, are sure you’re ready for your boyfriend to propose? More specifically, is your hand ready for him to a put a big ol’ expensive rock on it? According to ELLE, hand lifts — yes, face lifts for your handddddsssssss – are becoming increasingly popular with brides-to-be concerned that unsightly loose skin and wrinkles are distracting from their pretty baubles. Seriously, guys? I can’t.
Once upon a time, I got engaged and I suddenly had a big ol’ rock on my finger. I will admit that wearing such a beautiful piece of jewelry every day — a ring that didn’t turn my finger green and wasn’t purchased at Urban Outfitters or Forever 21 — did make me feel inclined to get more regular manicures. It just looked better with nicely shaped and freshly painted talons instead of chipped polish, straggly cuticles and dirt under my nails. But upping the frequency of my nail salons visits was a personal choice, not a requirement, and really ultimately silly and totally unnecessary. But a HAND LIFT?! Come. On. Keep reading »
How far are women willing to go for fashion? According to The New York Times, pretty far. The newspaper walks a mile in the shoes of a handful of LA- and NYC-based podiatrists who perform procedures specifically designed to help women fit comfortably into designer heels. What types of surgery are women undergoing for the sake of their Manolo Blahniks? Read more on Newser…
Plastic surgery has grown so extreme, it’s made even routine things like travel difficult. Don’t get me wrong. There’s nothing wrong, in my humble estimation, with getting a little nip or a tuck as the years go by. I haven’t had any plastic surgery, but should I have the money and think it might make me feel better about myself, then I think that should be my prerogative. But there’s a line that just shouldn’t be crossed. Read more on The Stir…
Justin Jedlica, also known as the Human Ken Doll, has a problem with Human Barbie Valeria Lukyanova, who he calls his “arch-nemesis.”
I’m getting a crazy flashback to that time when I was six and made my Barbie kick Ken out of the Dream House.
Jedlica and Lukyanova have met in the past, and Jedlica recently told GQ:
“She’s a cute girl…I don’t really get her. I don’t get why people think she’s so interesting. She has extensions. She wears stage makeup. She’s an illusionist…Unlike me, who has spent nearly $150,000 permanently transforming myself into a human Ken doll, Valeria just plays dress up. But as soon as you wipe away all that makeup, she’s just a plain Jane and there’s absolutely nothing special about her.”

I honestly can’t decide if this is outrageous, maddening, just plain sad, or a combination of all three. A mom was so unsatisfied with her post-baby appearance that she spent $25,000 on plastic surgery to look like Jennifer Lawrence – and wait until you hear just how much work it took for her to achieve that result.

It’s scary how often nowadays you read about some quack getting arrested for performing plastic surgery procedures without a license. Usually, someone tries to do an at-home butt augmentation or a boob job. But some quacks think they’re skilled enough to mess around with other people’s blood. Take 45-year-old massage therapist Sandra Gonzalez of Long Beach, California: she was arrested last week when a client died in her beauty salon while getting an unspecified cosmetic injection.

“If you’re going to try to attempt to become as busty as I am, you are at an extreme risk,” warns adult film actress, Elizabeth Starr of her size O(!) boobs.
“I wanted to further my career and call the shots by having larger breasts,” Starr explained of her decision to go HUGE.
So, in 1999 she underwent a now-banned procedure that used synthetic string implants which caused her boobs to fill with fluid overtime, likeViolet Beauregarde in “Willy Wonka And The Chocolate Factory.” (There’s larger and then there’s LARGER.) Keep reading »
A big shoutout to the Daily Mail for coming up with fun and creative ways to body shame. A new survey — done by … oh, does it even matter? — found that “bingo wings” and “buffalo humps” were among the most rapidly increasing cosmetic treatments. “Bingo wing” and “buffalo hump” sounds like an indie folk duo, but actually, they are newfangled descriptions for human body parts. The first person to guess which parts they are gets a cookie. Or actually, no, because that might make your “buffalo hump” even fatter than it already is. Keep reading »
“She didn’t mean harm, but when I was around nine I overheard my mom telling her friend I needed a nose job. I was shocked; I hadn’t even thought about it. I’ve grown into my face, but I’ve had makeup artists tell me, ‘You should get a nose job.’ I’m so happy that I never have. I’m proud for losing weight when I wanted to and I’ve never resorted to surgery. I’m not against it – one day I probably will but it would be on my terms.”
The parenting skills of Kris Jenner are unparalleled. This is Khloe Kardashian in Cosmopolitan revealing how Mama Kris had eyes on plastic surgery for her darling child at the ripe old age of nine. That’s nothing but adult “Mean Girls” behavior. I’m sorry, but fourth graders’ bodies aren’t even fully formed yet! There are a lot of (usually awkward) years before someone settles into their adult nose. And I think Khloe’s nose looks just fine! [US Weekly]
Orange County plastic surgeon Michael Niccole feels not the least bit apologetic about nipping and tucking his adopted daughters Charm and Brittani, starting at the age of 10, on a regular basis.
“They’ve lived in the world of cosmetics, so they understand the importance of looking and maintaining your beauty for the rest of their lives” said Dr. Niccole.
The sisters, now both 25, have respectively had nose jobs, breast augmentations and just about every manner of Boxtox you could imagine.
“Getting your breasts done, is like, basically, like, getting a teeth cleaning here,” said Brittani. “That’s how I see it, like honestly, I swear.” Keep reading »
