Breform Means You Never Have To Wear A Bra Again?

Perhaps you’ve heard of the boob lift, a surgical procedure that hoists up your sagging breasts. Now there’s the internal bra, which also does this, but goes one step further by putting a reinforcing structure in place, so that you don’t actually have to wear a bra. Ever. The product used is called Breform—a firm mesh cup that’s implanted under a layer of breast skin, effectively providing a support to lift and hold them. While this kind of sounds like a miracle procedure, some of the details are not so pleasant. A plastic surgeon who performs the technique explains, “Over time, the mesh gets incorporated into the breast as the body produces a fibrous tissue that holds the structure in place — like a permanent bra under the skin.”

The procedure is relatively new, but so far, none of the 600 women to participate have had any complications. What do you think? Something you’d be interested in after some more time and research has passed? [NY Daily News] Keep reading »

“I was nervous, but also excited … I never thought in my wildest dreams [my mother] was going to react the way she did. She was looking at me almost like a zoo animal. It wasn’t like I was her daughter anymore. She was looking at me like I was a circus freak. I think she was most upset that Spencer was there for me and she wasn’t. She was saying how sad it is that my confidence is gone because of the music industry I’m trying to get into.”

Heidi Montag seems rather delusional about her mom’s disturbed reaction to her new face, in an interview with People.com. And of course, the whole exchange was captured for “The Hills” fans. Keep reading »

Shocker: Heidi Montag’s Plastic Surgeon Is Bonkers

What?! Chinese Woman Wants Plastic Surgery To Look Like Jessica Alba
