Word out of the Paris police department is ’90s supermodel Karen Mulder was arrested for “threatening to attack her plastic surgeon.” Oui, really. Apparently Karen took prank-calling to a whole new level and started making “vicious” phone calls to her doctor about, apparently, having a previous surgery reversed. (Above, Mulder last year and also in 2005.) The one time Sports Illustrated and Victoria’s Secret model is no stranger to odd, unsettling and downright dangerous (to herself) behavior — she once claimed that she had been raped by Prince Albert of Monaco, she’s suffered from chronic depression and drug addiction, and at one point attempted suicide with sleeping pills, only to be saved by friends. All very sad. Help for her, please! [Daily Mail U.K.]

Who’s your nipple role model?
Have no idea what we’re talking about? Good. You haven’t been brainwashed by yet another plastic surgery trend we don’t understand: nipple surgery to change the shape, color or size of your areolae. Keep reading »
The global financial crises has forced every industry to get a little creative. Rather than go with the stodgy “buy one get one free” approach of many struggling industries, the Czech health care system is wooing its nurses with unusual pizazz. Like most countries around the world, the Czech Republic’s health care system is teetering on the brink of collapse, in part due to the nursing shortage. The Czech Republic is in a particular bind: Nurses are emigrating to other countries for better pay and opportunity while fewer people are training to become nurses due to the negative stereotypes left over from communism. The idea of using incentives to encourage employees to renew their contracts is hardly newsworthy. The fact that some Czech medical establishments are using incentives like free breast implants, liposuction and tummy tucks does raise my eyebrows. (Not for long, however, should I decide to become a Czech nurse and opt for a face lift or Botox.) Keep reading »

Everyone’s still talking about Miss California’s gay marriage comments. Now there’s more drama for 21-year-old beauty queen Carrie Prejean. Apparently, there were some nice perks for her as former Miss California. The state’s pageant organization paid her bill for fake boobs.
Prejean received breast implants paid for by the Miss California Organization just weeks before she competed in the Miss USA pageant, confirmed Shanna Moakler, co-executive director of organization. Shanna told “Access Hollywood” that Carrie wanted breasts implants and the Miss California Organization “supported that decision.” Shanna, herself a former Miss USA and an ex-Playboy Playmate, added, “Breast implants in pageants is not a rarity. It’s definitely not taboo. It’s very common. Breast implants today among young women today is very common.” Keep reading »
That stabbing sensation in a woman’s toes may not always be from her do-me heels. In rarefied circles, it’s a little jab of Botox. Dr. Suzanne Levine is a New York City aesthetic podiatrist for the “Gossip Girl” set, and she perks up the wrinkly feet of ladies who lunch—so their Louboutins won’t reveal their ages.
Dr. Levine charges $500 for Pillows for Your Feet, her biannual Juvaderm and Sculptra injections. “[Some women] are so embarrassed, they go to a separate section of Bergdorf to try on shoes, and they leave their socks on during intimate moments, or even at their gynecologists office, which I just find so hilarious,” she says.”
To all you ladies out their wearing socks in the stirrups because you’re afraid your gyno is going to be appalled by your wrinkly feetyou are way obsessed, my dears. Sounds like you need some foot fetishist love. [NY Observer] Keep reading »

But she couldn’t handle that—so after losing a few pounds and dying her hair, she fell down a rabbit hole of plastic surgery sure to scar her daughter for life. Here’s what she had done… Keep reading »
Sandra McElwaine at The Daily Beast wants to know, “Who Did Nancy Pelosi’s New Face?” The Speaker of the House (who just turned 69) has been sporting a, uh, much tighter looking mug, causing many to strongly suspect she’s had a heavy dose of plastic surgery. The slideshow of images does make for a compelling argument. But should we care? Should this even be a topic of conversation when there’s, you know, an economic crisis and other more serious issues to discuss? Well, maybe not, but then again, should we be wasting precious economic crisis discussion time talking about men in Hello Kitty boxers, “The Millionaire Matchmaker,” or the war between Julia Allison and Mary Rambin? Those things are just dying for attention and it’s our duty to give it to them! Unfortunately, when you’re the Speaker of the House and your face suddenly looks like it got trapped in a wind tunnel, you kind of can’t blame people for wanting to gossip about it. Keep reading »
Cosmetic surgeons have always seemed like the used car salesmen of doctors — they profit off women (and men) not liking parts of their bodies and being willing to pay to change them. But have you ever wondered if these crafty folks try to charm and sell patients on treatments that they hadn’t considered before? Melanie Berliet, a Vanity Fair writer, went undercover to test her hypothesis that plastic surgeons try to sell additional procedures to patients that they don’t “need.” The 5’9″, 120-pound 27-year-old, who wears a size 34B bra, went into the consultations under the guise of wanting breast augmentation. Surprisingly, the three surgeons had different reactions to her physique, but all of them recommended procedures she hadn’t originally asked for. Find out the deets, after the jump… Keep reading »
