The government does NOT cover cosmetic surgery. If somebody wants a nosejob, hair transplants, etc., it’s not covered by ANY insurance plan. OHIP *does not* cover cosmetic surgery. Call any doctor and they’ll tell you that. Cosmetic surgery is only covered when someone has gone through some sort of traumatic accident like severe burns, and skin grafts are necessary. Even then, your going to go through alot to justify this.
So please don’t give me this nonsense how “cosmetic surgery costs you money” in Canada. If it’s not you having it done, it costs you zilcho. So perhaps you had better be careful before making erroneous generalizations like that. If I’m wrong (which I’m sure I’m not since I’ve met several people who have had cosmetic surgery and NOT ONE has had coverage from the government or insurance plans) then please enlighten me.
If I’m right then there goes your argument. Los Angeles is probably the world capital for plastic surgery. Men are very definitely being targetted in the ads around town. I’m actually kinda concerned about these penile and testicular enlargements that are being advertized. I think it’s possible a man could have serious complications from the surgery, such as heavy bleeding and scarring that could lead to loss of function.
Does anyone happen to have some safety stats or general information on the procedures being used? Related to this, don’t forget all the money men spend on health clubs, home weight-lifting sets, and all the guys going over the border to buy anabolic steroids. Oh, yes, and buying Rogaine at $60 per bottle
