Fewer facelifts--don't be sad
Second year in a row—plastic surgery is down. There were 2% fewer operations than in 2008. This from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
Breast augmentation still beats out lipo, though.
Non-surgeries like Botox and hyaluronic acid were flat (pun intended).
Buttock lifts—up (er) 25%!
Buttock augmentations (people wanting more back porch) up a rousing 37%.. Having a huge you-know-what, this one I don’t get AT ALL.
The economy has to get better (yeah, sure) for the boomers to do too much remodeling.
Don’t you think people who get a lot of work (I don’t even mean that Lion Woman) look sort of weird? Sandra Bullock could hardly move her mouth at the Oscars. On the “Real Housewives of Orange County,” one of the “ladies” made her mom get surgery and she went from a smiley, Katherine Hepburnish freckleface to a stiff woman who looked like she was standing in a high wind.
Oh, don’t mind me—I can’t afford to go to the dentist—what do I know? I do know, though, that two of my doctors have started beauty practices—cash business, you know. Pay attention to us sick people!
