Bristol Palin before and after weight loss, plastic surgeryIn the newly-released promo pictures for Dancing with the Stars, Bristol appears significantly thinner than when she competed on "DWTS" in 2010, when she placed third overall.  Since then, she has slimmed down considerably and decided to get chin liposuction and jaw surgery to get rid of extra fat around her face.  "I am absolutely thrilled with the results," Palin told Us in 2011. "I look older, more mature, and don't have as much of a chubby little baby face!" The new season of DWTS kicks off Sept. 24.

Breast Slapping - A Thai Beautician's Alternative to Plastic Surgery

Breast slappingIf you’re serious about making some changes to your appearance but are to afraid to go under the knife, you might want to book a flight to Thailand and give Khemmikka Na Songkhla’s government-approved slapping techniques a try. The 44 -year-old Bangkok beautician is the only person in the world who knows the secrets of breast, face and buttock slapping, which she inherited from her grandmother. 

Khemmikka Na Songkhla, better known as ”Khunying Tobnom” discovered the beautifying effects of slapping when she was a teenager looking for ways to enlarge her own breasts. One day her grandmother saw her rubbing her breasts with a miracle cream and advised her to stop wasting time with that stuff and rub them the old-fashioned way, until it hurt. After she let her grandmother slap her breasts a few times and douse them with ice-water, Khemmikka noticed her breast size grew by 4 inches, and eventually mastered the slapping techniques herself.
