The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons reported that the number of male breast reductions have increased by 80 percent in the past year. Indeed, most women we polled will take a beer gut or receding hairline over man breasts any day of the week.
The most recent issue of People has the rundown of Heidi Montag's ten most recent surgeries (performed in one fell swoop). Part of the post-op interview includes a question about Spencer Pratt's role in the matter (note: as a general Svengali, many folks conjecture that he masterminded the operations). Is this plastic surgery jag a good idea for her? Is she sexier? Should more ladies get plastic surgery? Answers inside.
Poll: Should Spencer Have Stopped Heidi's Surgeries?: Yes. Ten procedures is too much, and as her husband, Spencer should have stopped her. No. It's her body, and she should be able to do what she wants with it.
Yesterday, The New York Times printed a small piece on edible beauty products, highlighting such odd concoctions as Nutra Resveratrol Anti-Ageing Water and, even more disturbing, a coffee in Singapore that contains collagen, and which is meant to improve the skin. In Japan, they even add collagen to yogurt drinks, dried fruits and other foods. It seems like a weird way to go in order to simultaneously satisfy your beauty and your caffeine fix. Then again, we've seen worse.
Beauty queen and Miss Argentina 1994, Solange Magnano, died on Sunday as a result of complications from elective gluteoplasty, commonly known as a "butt lift." Although authorities are still investigating the cause of death, Solange's friend Roberto Piazza said that liquid injected for Thursday's surgery "went to her lungs and brain," causing respiratory failure. She was transferred from the clinic to the hospital, where she remained in critical care until suffering a fatal pulmonary embolism.

As a kid, my ballet teacher nicknamed me Olive Oil because I was tall and skinny with long dark hair like the cartoon. By 14, puberty had left me squeezing into 32DD bras. My instant curves disgusted me. "You are not fat; you’re Zaftik," my mother would say in Yiddish, as she inspected my 5'7" and 120-lb. frame. She meant I carried my weight well. Large busts were so common among Jewish women they'd created a word in the Old Country for exactly what I'd inherited.
On Tonight's Millionaire Matchmaker Patti tries to set up a plastic surgeon, who claims that out of all the woman he's dated, "there's never been a face that didn't need something." Imagine having to date this guy! Dr. Robert Nettles is a 34-year-old "cosmetic facial surgeon," and he's super picky. "I think it would be very difficult for a woman to date someone like me, because I know what's wrong with their face and I know what I can do about it," he said. Clip above.
Depressing: a study of 2,000 men in Britain found 16% think their wives could use a little nip and tuck, while 6% would like to see a "complete overhaul." Till her refusal of plastic surgery do us part, I guess? A third of men said plastic surgery would spruce up their sex life (um, have you actully felt a fake boob?) and a fifth said plastic surgery could actually save their marriage. Oh, please. Just divorce right now. Here, use my lawyer.
