Cosmetic surgery and money making

Look, go to the Web and look up something innocent that you might want information on, such as breasts, or large size, or BBW’s, or breast reduction. What you will get from your search is a lot of stuff put out by people who are trying to make money. In the case of breasts, you will be inundated by the damn porno industry offerings, which have done their own share of information bias and social pollution.

 

If you look up breast reduction, you will find mostly (well over 90%) of the so called data is put out by PS’s, who are interested in providing only the information, and only the depth of information, that is needed to sell their services. I find this a real pain, since every one of them provides only superficial information and leaves out various information that women who are considering this need to know, as it could have an impact on the rest of their lives, since breast reduction surgery does create a permanent and major alteration in the body structure.

 

In order to find information that is not profit approved, one must go to more sophisticated Boolean searches that will filter out most of this profit orientated data enough to uncover any opinions presented by real people that aren’t PS’s. My filters exclude words that are commonly used by medical cliques, but even then, I get a majority of hits that are of PS origin. The fact that it is the profit orientated “information” that is mostly available should not be very surprising to anyone that takes a look at modern reality.

 

And if you think about it, you will realize that the flux of profit orientated information will overwhelm and inhibit non profit information, and quite likely will act, in totality, to suppress data that could in theory have a negative effect on these profits. Unless, of course, you have a strong bias in favor of your own opinion which happens to conform to profit manufactured information biases of the PS industry.

Breast reduction as a result of liposuction

And I know a surgeon that, over a time, gave liposuction to his secretary, until she had had her entire body liposuction-ed. The surgeon discovered that the total liposuction had caused her to put on weight on her breasts (no where else to go) so he was glad to give her a breast reduction. Insurance was very glad to pay him fully to do the breast reduction that he himself had created the “need” for. Men seeking liposuction need also realize that liposuction can can gynocomastia, also known as bitch tits. BTW, PS’s do both breast reductions and breast augmentations.

 

Since these enterprises are in opposition surgeons generally do not promote large breasts. Instead they promote *standard size* breasts, and will tend at times to encourage women to get breast implants that are too small for their body. As a result of this and other misguidance, the most common size problem is disappointment with their breast implants being too small, not the other way around.

 

This kind of disappointment brings the woman around later to upgrade her size, which happens to make more money for the surgeon. Any woman who is larger than average frame and wants a decent boob job is well advised to go to a PS that *does not do breast reduction*, b/c otherwise the PS can misguide them, and is in all probability one who has virtually no skill or experience or potential for doing decent breast augmentations on larger sized women.

 

Out in Texas, where big implants are really hot, some PS’s avoid mentioning breast reduction in their advertisements, since some women actually realize that going to a breast reduction surgeon for a larger size breast augmentation is asking for trouble.

Breast reduction foundation

The breast reduction foundation, on the other hand, works in completely different areas to pull in its profits. It is opposite augmentation, yet it is truly equal, pulling in every bit as much profit to the PS’s as does breast augmentation. The breast reduction industry succeeded in fully recruiting the American medical industry, members of whom now recommend breast reduction over more logical, vastly less destructive alternatives such as weight loss, proper posture, and objective information.

 

The major demographic of breast reduction is focussed on women that are over weight, as opposed to thin, so breast reduction and breast implants both fully exploit concepts related to female body fat. The breast reduction business also works by female self image manipulation, but in this case, the motives are negative, playing on vulnerabilities, insecurities, obsessions, catalyzing the image damage to women, doing whatever it can to encourage them to see their own breasts as undesirable, physically and emotionally, confirming and enhancing their entrenchment into the powerful medical system. Promotion by the medical establishment has supreme advantages… doctors, highly reverenced and trusted, become most powerful shills for promoting the reductions.

 

Furthermore, the doctors act as highly efficient facilitators of the breast reduction financing, since medical insurance, or state medical support structures, will abide by the advice of the medical professionals as a matter of faith. If a woman with large breasts who has no back problems wishes to relieve herself of the burdens of negativeness that the PS industry itself has festered upon her psyche, she need merely go to a single medical doctor and simply lie about having back pain, and she will be rewarded for her easy deception by having her insurance pay for the surgery virtually in full.

 

Meanwhile, as more and more women discover that they will be rewarded for their lies, with no need to fear being caught, the number of women claiming back pain related to their large breasts grows geometrically every year, as if their were some strange epidemic spreading more rapidly than AIDS. Information from the insurance companies and the doctors can then be used to promote the thesis that big breasts cause back pain, as the PS’s do over and over again in various sundry ways.

Stopping Plavix for Cosmetic Surgery

I am scheduled for some cosmetic surgery in August. I have been on Plavix since May 25 when I had 2 stents. Also last week I had to have a pacemaker implanted. The cardiologist who implanted the pacemaker said that I should be fine for the cosmetic surgery as long as it was at least 3 weeks after the implantation.

 

He did not comment on stopping the Plavix for the 10 days prior to the cosmetic procedure. If those stents were placed at a site that was restenosed after earlier angioplasty and brachytherapy (radiation) was administered, stopping Plavix for cosmetic surgery would be a bad idea. Most would advise holding off on the cosmetic surgery until the course of Plavix is completed.

 

Yes, one of the stents was placed at a site that had restenosed a bit, but there was no brachytherapy. My course of plavix is for six months, of which 2 months have passed already. Again, I only want to stop for the 10 days prior to the cosmetic surgery, and restart immediately after. by the way, the new stents were the Cypher stents, if that makes any difference. t was mentioned in a radio news report.

The details weren’t mentioned, just that muscle was removed. Now, the reporter could have gotton that wrong. But, in the report, and comments by an American doctor, it did sound as if muscle tissue is removed.I haven’t really compared continental asians (most asians I’ve met are mixed or darker-skinned asians–such as Filipinas)–many people don’t even realize how huge China really is, much less the entirety of Asia–but there are all different kinds of “eye-types.”

Repeated cosmetic surgery

As others have said, many people who undergo repeated cosmetic surgery procedures may be experiencing body dysmorphic disorder. Good plastic surgeons will interview prospective patients thoroughly before agreeing to perform any sort of surgery which doesn’t seem to be warranted.

 

If it seems that a patient has unrealistic expectations or is overly-focused on flaws which are not apparent to anyone else, good surgeons will refer them to a psychiatrist or psychologist and refuse to do surgery. Other surgeons are not that scrupulous. There is a woman who lives in NYC who has had so many repeated cosmetic procedures on her face and her eyes that she is now rather bizarre looking, almost deformed, rather than having whatever appearance she was originally seeking….probably she was a perfectly ordinary or good looking woman before she started her frequent trips under the knife.

 

There is a distinct difference between plastic and reconstructive surgery which is done to repair damage of some sort due to congenital anomalies, accidents or disfiguring illness, and the more popular cosmetic surgery.As someone who has had the benefit of reconstructive surgery, I am quite disturbed when I read of some of these situations or see them on TV where a patient who is perfectly normal is requesting some cosmetic procedure which may or may not actually enhance their appearance and which may have no real impact on the underlying psychological problems which most likely exist.

quite frankly i think anyone who has surgery for anything other than an emergency, to prevent an emergency or for medical necessity doesn’t fall in the sane category. maybe that’s because I’ve spent more time in the OR than i want to remember and I’ve seen everything that can happen.

COSMETIC SURGERY and ISLAM

I was recently watching Kilroy and they were talking about cosmetic surgery.
So I was wondering, what are people’s thoughts on this subject and what does
Islam have to say about it. I am not talking about surgery for horrific
accidents or massive burns etc. I am talking about stuff like breast
enlargements, liposuction etc. Personally I think that surgery in this area
for any reason except a medical one is wrong, but I would like to hear other
people’s opinion. What do the Marja’s say about this and what does Islam in
general say about this.

 

Well I don’t think the Koran says much about it. But you can bet the Muslim “experts” will have lots to say:) personally i don’t know how the doctors can justify it on moral grounds. “If something inst broken don’t fix it” one of the few sensible sayings to come out of America. Unfortunately so did plastic surgery! I find it all rather sad. Except in extreme cases, people should accept their bodies the way God delivered them! Of course that’s easy for me to say.

 

Body Art is a movement away from the mainstream, and “cosmetic surgery” is a movement _toward_ the mainstream, aren’t you creating a contextual definition on the terms? i.e. to a middle class US citizen, breast implants or penis enlargement are “cosmetic surgery,” while tattoos are body art… but to others, elsewhere, breast implants, being strange and abnormal, are body art, and tattoos are “cosmetic surgery?” wouldn’t it be more logical to say that body art is a synonym for “cosmetic surgery,” both of them being physical operations for changing appearances– i.e. Surgery on a Cosmetic level?

Cosmetic surgery for Down’s features

In seminar last night we were presented with a case study of a mother of a child who had Down’s. This mother was particularly concerned about the child’s epicanthic folds. Obviously they made the child look different from other kids and she wanted the folds corrected. I was fascinated by the reactions of the early childhood educators in the class. They were appalled that the mother would focus on this feature. They said that the mother wasn’t accepting her child as she was.

 

They said the mom was focusing on making the kid normal and not on loving the kid unconditionally. My argument was that the mom probably did love the kid and just wanted the kid to avoid being automatically labelled. My son has a rare genetic disorder kinda like Downs with a portion of CP. And while he is of normal looks, he had severe strabisimus (crossed eyes). His behaviour is maybe at the 8 month level (he is 2, 36 inches tall and almost 30 pounds. He does NOT behave like hge looks like he ought to.

 

We had surgery done on his eyes and have noticed 2 things. With his eyes crossed, people saw his age inappropriate behaviour but also got an inkling that there may be something wrong with him. (Good and bad results due to that) With his eyes corrected, you couldn’t tell there’s anything wrong with him if he’s at rest, but now when he acts age inappropriate, we are very conscious of peoples reactions. It’s almost like before, he had a visible clue that there was a problem; absent the clue, people treat him like a 2 year old who’s not acting right.

Fitting into a sports bra

I would like some info on some GOOD sports bras for women who are in the larger cup sizes..(D cups and up). I can’t seem to find a decent sports bra that fits well and has decent support. Any help would be appreciated. I was wearing ones made by Lily of France that Macy’s had carried. They were great, but I can’t seem to find them anymore. Lane Bryant is carrying some now as is Woman’s World. I wear a 46DD and need a 48 in the W.World bra, but could wear a 46 in the Lily and LaneB ones.

 

I like the Lily best though. How about doubling up on bras? I know it’s not ideal, but a friend of mine does this. I think she puts on a very structurally sound bra with underwire, large straps, and so forth under a sports bra. It looked uncomfortable to me. But bouncing does hurt, so perhaps it is the lesser of two evils. It really pisses me off that the sports bra industry seems to think that only small breasted women want to exercise.

 

Like someone with an A cup needs support like a D cup? And I thought I had it bad with merely a C cup. Yes, I agree wholeheartedly. I’m a mere C cup myself, but I have a friend is a 36DD. She can’t find a good sports bra worth beans! I did see an ad for By-Kimberly sport bras that boasted cups sizes B to DD. It said they were at selected Neiman Marcus stores and at Norstrom.

 

I’m not aware of either of these stores existing where I live but they did give an 800 number. Perhaps they could tell you where you might find their bras for the area you are in. The number is 1-800-700-4171. The bras advertised are acutually pleasing to the eye as well.

Book Review article, Coming face to face with cosmetic surgery

By the 1920s, cosmetic surgery had a hold on the imagination of the American public, thanks in large part to the efforts of journalists, who, then as now, were fascinated by its possibilities. In 1923, the famous Jewish comedian Fanny Brice submitted to a much-publicized nose bob in hopes that it would enable her to play a wider range of roles. “Hurrah for the intrepid Fanny,” The New York Times editorialized. (Writer Dorothy Parker, @also Jewish, saw it differently, commenting that Brice had “cut off her nose to spite her race.”)

 

In the 1920s and ’30s, trained plastic surgeons realized the importance of establishing the legitimacy of their specialty and brought it under the auspices of the American Medical Association. The American Board of Plastic Surgery was founded in 1941 to set standards for the profession. In the years between the wars, many plastic surgeons had concentrated on performing reconstructive surgery and were reluctant to operate on patients motivated by vanity. But by the ’40s most had realized that vanity was where the future lay, to say nothing of the money. The doctors were shortly persuaded that these patients weren’t @motivated by (unhealthy) vanity but by a (healthy) desire for self-respect through self-improvement. If a new nose or chin would help them land a job or a husband, the cosmetic surgeon was ready to help. It was, and is, the American way.

 

As Haiken’s research reveals, popular psychology played a crucial role in the triumph of cosmetic surgery. Alfred Adler’s concept of the inferiority complex was much in vogue in the 1930s and ’40s. The cosmetic surgeon was thus seen as serving a psychological @function by helping patients overcome feelings of inferiority engendered by an unattractive appearance. The link between cosmetic surgery and psychology is stronger than ever today. Many patients seek surgery hoping it will improve what we have learned to call self-esteem.

Cosmetic surgery more effective than upgrading ?

From what newspapers have shown young pretty babes with skimpy bikinis and tiny skirts selling hundred cups of bubble tea to many eager and ‘thirsty’ patrons, somewhere in Woodlands, it has totally validated my view that Singaporeans do not need diploma, degree or high education certificates to find a job and create wealth. What Singaporean need is cosmetic surgery to enhance their face and body and the desire to bare them to their eager public !! Singaporeans should forget about upgrading their brains and go for upgrading their bodies instead.

 

If our society desire young beautiful perky working boys and girls to man their stations and entice customers, Singaporean should go for cosmetic surgery and appeal to the government for more “cosmetic surgery funds”. Since most employers want only good looking and relatively young workers, having a S$1 billion funds will allow all Singaporeans to fixed their crooked teeth, stop hair loss, lose tummy fat and perk up their nose, ear, mouth, eyelid plus whatever is visible to the employer.

 

Singapore service industry is also moving towards “world class” and therefore no ‘ugly’ or old workers are desirable as this is bad image for the service industry. If the sale assistant is as ugly as your dead grandmother, where got business !! Singaporeans urgently need many cosmetic surgery before job application is successful as that is what employers want, hence, instead of life long learning, how about having a life long “cosmetic surgery funds” ?
