Remember back in the olden days, when you would buy a pushup bra for special occasions, or a padded bikini whenever you felt like flaunting a little extra cleavage at the beach? Well, thankfully us women can now ditch those bothersome old-fashioned bras and chicken cutlets, and inject stuff directly into our breasts!
That’s right ladies, the latest plastic surgery fad is the temporary boob job. For $3,500, a plastic surgeon will inject your breasts with a saline solution, which will temporarily inflate your breasts. In approximately 24 hours, the saline solution is safely metabolized by your body and your breasts shrink back to their original size.
Originally, this temporary breast enlargement procedure was used on patients that were considering a traditional breast augmentation with implants, who wanted to test-drive different breast sizes before committing to surgery. Soon enough, word got out and the temporary breast enlargement procedure was being requested for special occasions, such as weddings and vacations.
One New York plastic surgeon, Dr. Norman Rowe, has been performing the temporary breast enlargement procedure for 5 years now, and is currently doing 3 – 5 per week. But, while Dr. Rowe is happy to rake in $56,000 per month injecting saline into breasts, not many other doctors think that this temporary breast enhancement is worth it. President of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Dr. Michael C. Edwards, claims that while he doesn’t see any harm in the procedure, his concern is that these saline injections will stretch out the breast tissue, leaving you with breasts that sag more after the saline is absorbed into the body.

Monique Allen is described by her friends as having a big heart, but that’s not the only thing big about the transgendered pop star! She also has really big boobs, a 38 triple F rack to be exact, huge lips and big problems when it comes to her botched plastic surgery. Born a male, Monique surprised no one when at 18 she declared she wanted a sex change. Her parents even agreed to pay for the gender reassignment surgery, after which Monique become completely obsessed with plastic surgery.
After getting a college degree in criminal justice, Monique got a completely ordinary day job as a corrections officer. While management insisted she keep her look and personality toned down around the office, Monique lived a wild lifestyle as soon as she punched out for the day.
She says back in her younger years she started going out a lot, hanging out with a crowd that regularly frequented the offices of plastic surgeons around Los Angeles. She says these friendships and wild nightlife not only fueled her obsession for perfection, but they got her into contact with a producer she began making music with. Her videos have always been very low budget though, and just recently Monique was asked to do a “proper music video” for her song, Glamorous Monique.
While excited about the opportunity, Monique was incredibly concerned about her appearance, mostly because of her ears and saggy, silicon-rippled skin. Back when she was 29-years old she had her first face lift by a surgeon that unintentionally gave her pixie ears. And as for the lumpy, rippled skin, she can blame an overload of silicon injections. Monique has had over a gallon of silicone injected all throughout her body–from her butt to her face to her belly.
Over time this silicone has traveled to different parts of her body, causing Monique a lot of health problems, as well as many surgeries to remove silicone and reconstruct areas it left damaged. In total, Monique has undergone more than 200 surgeries over the last 35 years, many just because of silicone related issues.
When she first visited the doctors on Botched, I really thought they were going to say no to her. But both of the doctors readily agreed to work on the tightly pulled, and heavily injected Monique. Dr. Paul Nassif agrees to take on Monique’s ears and Dr. Terry Dubrow agrees to bring a new and much tighter look to her stomach.
The biggest concern for both doctors is the free-floating silicone all inside of Monique’s body. Dr. Dubrow runs into a massive portion of silicone while performing surgery on her stomach. He admits this complicates the procedure by a lot, making it a 9 out of 10 as far as difficulty is concerned. He also says that when a patient has silicone leaking in their body, it gets everywhere, even leaving the hospital operating room sticky for days. Thankfully, all goes well and both Monique’s ears and stomach look better than ever—as per usual thanks to Dr. Dubrow and Dr. Nassif!
Things go so well that when Dr. Nassif checks up on Monique’s progress only a day after surgery, he can’t believe that she has practically no bruising on her ears. She also appears happy and calm as a cucumber, saying her ears hardly hurt at all. Dr. Nassif chalks it up to the fact Monique has undergone so many surgeries that her body is now ultra proficient at healing itself.
With the pop star finally feeling 100% confident, she was ready to shoot her most professional music video ever. In which she wears a crop top that says “Busted” and mostly just sort of sings, “sock it to me daddy.” Still, watching those giant boobs jiggle up and down is weirdly entertaining.botched, over 50, transgendered
Tummy tuck, breast implants… what about a hand lift?
Selfies are changing the world, including the type of plastic surgery that people are getting. One social media rule in particular orders that after you get engaged you HAVE to post a picture of your ring on your finger. So what happens when that coveted moment arrives and you realize your hand isn’t as photogenic as the rest of you?
Kim Kardashian admits it takes over 10 selfies to get a shot that actually looks good, but for some women, no matter how many times they take, and re-take, a photo of their hand they hate the way it looks.
Meet Christa Hendershot, a recently engaged 33-year old who wanted to participate in the ‘snap and share’ engagement ring phenomena. Yet when she went to post, she decided she needed cosmetic surgery to alter the appearance of her hands before posting a photo of her new diamond ring. Hendershot paid a reported $3,000 to have her hands fixed so that they did not show so many red veins.
Hendershot isn’t the only woman to undergo hand surgery to improve her hand selfie. Other women are making the same requests of their plastic surgeon, but for their own sets of reasons. For instance, one common request is to make hands appear more feminine.
As their name suggests, “selfies” are making us all more “self aware.” Especially when it comes to appearances, the first thing anyone notices about a photo. As a result, doctors across the globe are seeing patients that have developed body image concerns because of a selfie. ABC News interviewed New York doctor, Dr. Ariel Ostad about his experiences with patients since the selfie movement kicked off. He says, “I’ve noticed over the last six months patients actually bring a selfie in the examining room. They show me what bothers them and what they would like to fix.”
Would you consider getting plastic surgery on your hands? Plastic surgery obsessed celebrities such as Madonna and Kim Kardashian have reportedly had hand lifts to make their hands appear younger, and hey, the procedure is cheaper than many other forms of cosmetic alterations. How important is the appearance your hands?
Antonio Gleidson Rodrigues is no normal 32-year old living in Brazil! Antonio has now bleached his skin to further resemble the iconic superstar legend, Michael Jackson. Antonio imitates the King of Pop for a living, referring to himself as the number one Michael Jackson impersonator in all of Brazil.
He has definitely worked harder than anyone to achieve his self-given tittle. Every day he spends over 4-hours practicing and perfecting his dance moves to be more like Michael—which is no easy feat, anyone care to moon walk? It’s not easy, I’ve tried many times! Antonio also spends 1-½ hours applying his Michael-ready makeup each day.
Antonio dedicates a massive amount of time to his image, but he has also gone through painful and potentially life-altering surgeries in order to get his look just right.
Antonio was once a humble drama teacher, but after his students suggested he looked like a pop star, he decided he might as well become the next Michael Jackson, literally.
5-years ago, Antonio underwent his first cosmetic surgery which included adjusting his nasal septum, not for medical concerns but because he wanted to reach higher notes when singing—you know, like Michael. Since this procedure his obsession has grown alongside his transforming appearance.
In an effort to be more like Michael, Antonio has gotten rhinoplasty. As of now his nose still looks completely intact, but I can’t help but wonder what his ultimate ‘nose’ goal will be. After all, Antonio is clearly not going for the ‘natural’ Michael Jackson, instead he has has cosmetic surgeries and bleached his skin in order to look more like the pop star after his controversial plastic surgeries and procedures.
In order to bleach his skin, Antonio had hyaluronic acid injected into his face—sounds safe enough right? He also had the gap between his front teeth fixed, his eyebrows tattooed, oh and he regularly gets Botox injections under his eyes.
But Antonio isn’t finished yet! He hopes someday to afford other surgeries like removing the wrinkles in his cheekbones and along his mouth, as well as putting more arch into his tattooed eyebrows.
Maria Doriane Bastos de Souza, Antonio’s aunt, is worried about her nephew and his obsession with everything Michael. In fact she tells reporters, “I worry for his health—I want him to come downstairs and eat a sandwich.” She also worries that one of his many surgeries will not go as planned.
Antonio was devastated by the news of Michael Jackson’s death, which seems to have fueled his transformation into the superstar even further. He considers all of the time that he puts into his impersonating the best gift he can give to his idol, the late Michael Jackson. Antonio says, “In my opinion, to lose that man—the greatest artist of all times—is a real tragedy for the world. There will never be another one like him- but I can try my best!”
Those Colombian drug lords really know how to party! Cocaine + boobs = fun, but what about boobs actually made of cocaine!? That may sound like Charlie Sheen’s ultimate wet dream, but cocaine stuffed breast implants are actually becoming a thing, when it comes to smuggling drugs across borders.
A women traveling from Colombia to Spain was busted at the Madrid airport with nearly 4lbs of cocaine stuffed into her “breast implants”.
Narcotics agents at the Madrid airport were conducting routine screenings of passengers, when they narrowed their search to a Venezuelan woman, who was traveling from Columbia to Spain. Upon questioning, the woman reportedly became extremely nervous and after a secondary pat-down by airport security, the woman confessed that the deformities detected in her breasts was due to the fact that her breast implants were stuffed with 3.7 pounds of cocaine. FYI, that much cocaine currently holds a street value of $75,000!
Upon her confession, the woman was taken to a nearby hospital, where her cocaine-filled breast implants where removed, and tested positive for cocaine. She is currently being detained by police and is being charged in Spain for “an alleged crime against public health”.
Other women have been busted in similar circumstances, which have raised the question of how to combat drug-smuggling via implants. Spain has a task unit that focuses on passengers traveling to and from countries with a history of drug production. The USA does not have such a task force, and has never caught anyone trying to smuggle drugs via surgical implants.Tags: cocaine, drugs
I am completely addicted to Botched on E! The show features some incredibly unique characters that have undergone hell and back to be “perfect.” Although instead of ending up perfect, these plastic surgery patients ended up botched. Thanks to Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif many people are getting a second chance to improve their ‘botched’ appearance.
This week we met a woman named Christina that had a botched tummy tuck and required some major help from the doctors. What makes Christina’s case so unique is that she is terrified of going under the knife, more so than your average patient. In fact, in the past she has had major panic attacks both before and after surgery. It doesn’t help at all that her last plastic surgery went bad.
When you first hear that an E! Botched episode revolves around a patient that is awake during surgery, you instantly assume that was in the past, and that on the show she will be put to sleep during their ordeal. Think again, on this Botched episode, a patient is actually kept wide-awake during her procedure.
Anyone who has ever had a panic attack knows how debilitating it can be; therefore the doctors did everything in their power to keep Christina calm and free from panic attacks. This included keeping Christina awake during surgery. While this seems more panic inducing to me, I’m no professional surgeon—or panic-disorder expert. Christina actually felt less anxious about staying awake than being put under anesthesia.
Christina is a pretty woman, but after having a botched tummy tuck, just after going through a divorce, her confidence took a major hit. Especially since her x-husband is already remarried to a woman that Christina describe as “always running around in her skinny clothes.” Not that Christina is big by any means; she originally underwent a tummy tuck to remove the excess skin she acquired after being pregnant multiple times. Instead of getting back her flat tummy, her first doctor gave her what Christina refers to as a “SpongeBob body.” Now, too embarrassed by her looks to date much, Christina needs help from the doctors on Botched.
Her procedure included liposuction to tighten up her belly, reshaping her belly button, and a scar revision that included fixing up her original botched incision so that it was below her bikini line. Dr. Terry Dubrow also paid close attention to the masses in her stomach, which were caused from old scars that became infected. All of this went down while Christina was awake.
Of course, drugs were used to numb Christina as well as make her sleepy. Still, without full anesthesia, the doctors start cutting and simultaneously talking to Christina. Due to her anxiety, and just being a normal human, every small bit of pressure caused her to yelp out in pain, but as she realized that she couldn’t really feel her stomach being cut open, she began to quiet down some.
Thankfully, during Christina’s procedure she at least couldn’t see what was going on, as a big blue screen was held up between her neck and lower body. Still, she knew what the doctors were doing, and I just can’t imagine being awake for that.
Dr. Terry Dubrow is incredible; not only is he 100% hilarious, but he is one talented plastic surgeon as well. Although if he told me he wanted to perform surgery while I was awake, I’d likely hit the Hollywood hills running!
Watch Christina get a tummy tuck while being awake:
Adult film actress, Christy Mack, sustained serious injuries after a brutal beating by her ex-boyfriend landed her in the hospital last week. Now, Christy’s friends and fans are rallying behind her and showing their support by raising funds for the plastic surgery 23-year old Christy will need to reconstruct her face.
According to Christy, her relationship with MMA fighter Jon “War Machine” Koppenhaver ended in May, but he showed up unannounced to her home in the middle of the night and proceeded to beat the hell out of her new boyfriend, before he turned his fury to Christy. The resulting injures include: 18 broken bones in her face, a broken nose, fractured ribs, a ruptured liver and missing teeth. During the attack War Machine also threatened to rape Christy and cut off her hair with a knife.
War Machine is currently on the run and is in hiding from authorities as he doesn’t think they will give him a fair chance to explain the situation. According to War Machine, Christy Mack is/was still his girlfriend, and he caught her with another man when he came home early to surprise her and help her set up for a convention. Although he refuses to turn himself in, he has reached out to Christy via his Twitter account and tweeted the following:
“@ChristyMack I love you and hope you’re okay. I came him(sp) early to surprise you and help you set up for your convention. I can’t believe what I found and can’t believe what happened.”
“All I wanted was to surprise you and help and do something nice…now this. I’m so heartbroken…in all ways. I will always love you.”
Friends of the former couple have said that War Machine and Christy’s relationship has been on and off the last few months, and they were photographed holding hands in public just a couple of weeks ago. In 2013, the couple got tattoos of each others names permanently inked on their bodies. War Machine got a huge tattoo on his neck of Christy’s last name, “Mack”, and Christy got a large tattoo on her shoulder that says, “Property of War Machine”.
Regardless of how complicated the relationship situation between Christy and War Machine is, what he did to her is disgusting and she’s lucky to be alive. There isn’t too much that War Machine needs to explain to authorities as there is no excuse for what he did to Cristy, who is 5’3″ tall and weighs in at barely 100lbs. Just for the record, War Machine is 170lbs and a trained professional fighter.
The fundraiser for Christy Mack’s medical and reconstructive surgery expenses has already reached over $63,000 and at this rate, they should be able to reach their goal of $100,000 pretty quickly. There is also a $20,000 reward being offered for information on War Machine’s whereabouts.
UPDATE: War Machine was apprehended by police today and is now in custody.
Jennifer Aniston has revealed to the world she never plans to alter her appearance with cosmetic surgery in any way. As we all know the pressure to look young in Hollywood has reached a point of impossible. At 45, Jennifer Aniston is around the age Hollywood women start clinging to the cosmetic surgery table in hopes of keeping their youth.
In a recent interview by Bobbie Brown for Yahoo Beauty, Jennifer Aniston gets candid about beauty and plastic surgery, saying, “I think what I have witness to, is seeing women trying to stay ageless with what they are doing to themselves. I am grateful to learn from their mistakes, because not I am not injecting sh&* into my face. I see and my heart breaks. I think, ‘oh god if you only know how much older you look.’
Hopefully her near and dear friends somehow magically have not read the big-time interview all over the media; otherwise Jen just spilled the beans on how she really feels about their faces. She goes on to add that she has to, “bite her tongue to stop herself from begging her friends to stop visiting surgeons.”
The Daily Mail has reported speculation over Jennifer’s comments being made towards her friend Courtney Cox, if so, ouch! And if she’s not referencing Courtney, whom is Jennifer slyly slamming?
Jennifer might not be made of plastic but she hasn’t always been so anti-plastic surgery. There have been rumors in the past about the star having various cosmetic procedures including a boob job, Botox and lip injections. Plus, Jennifer herself has readily admitted to going under the knife in the past. She has confessed to having had, not one, but two rhinoplasty surgeries. Of course, according to the actress, she did not do it for cosmetic reasons and only went under the knife to fix a deviated septum. Isn’t it strange that her nose mysteriously became smaller and straighter? Regardless, her current disdain for plastic surgery likely has a lot to do with her fiancé, Justin Theroux.
Turns out, Justin is not a fan of surgery at all, she shares that, “I also have a fiancé who will put a gun to my head if I touch my face in any way.”
She’s only 45, but still, with skin that flawless… she’s got to be doing something! And she is, she also shared during the same interview with Yahoo Beauty, “There are so many things that women can do today with technology in terms of LED light therapy, good lasers that tighten the muscles, and massages for your face—and don’t forget great creams.” She also shares that you need to drink a lot of water, never use too many products on your face, and get plenty of sleep. I will give it a try Jen; hopefully my results are as good as yours!
