All thru this time the breast implant industry recruited the entertainment industry as their primary shills, their fundamental agent of proliferation, their machinery for the dessimation of the breast enhancement product. Although the PS’s were surgeons, and they made full use of the American medical establishment, the industry had not evolved a strong employment and utilization of the medical system for the purpose of promoting its products.
PS innovations along these lines were in the process of development, notably the emphasis of medical terms to describe being flat chested, laying the groundwork for the claim that women who had small breasts were suffering from a medical condition that is properly cured by breast augmentation. Theories were being presented in respectable medical journals saying that small breastedness was a disease, with overriding psychological traumas complicating the underlying pathology, establishing breast augmentation as the easiest, most effective, and direct cure.
The underlying agenda of all this was to establish the medical community as major shills for the PS enterprise, but it never succeeded at the time. Then came the silicone scandals. After nearly a decade of illness, of fighting the dollar feeding tentacles, heads, and strong arms of the the silicone giant, the truth broke through, finally.
The legal and liability for all the damage tho fell into the laps of the implant manufacturers, while the PS’s themselves remained protected from judgement day, the Holocaust, like they had a Borg shield. Pampered darlings of media and inheriting the reverence of title from the medical image (PS’s are doctors, usually) they escaped with naught even a scolding. But alas they had all taken major income losses, as the breast implant business, now moved to the *saline* implant products , suffered an enormous down-slide.
