Pick of the Week:

Cosmetic Surgery News:

Cosmetic surgeons recycle eyebags into plumper cheeks

Cosmetic surgeons claim a new "two-in-one" procedure can turn back the clock on both the lower eyelids and cheeks. The procedure, pioneered by UK doctors, shifts fat from under the saggy skin beneath the eye and "recycles" it at the top of the cheekbone, where volume is lost in the aging process.
This has the effect of a "cheeklift", a procedure which is normally achieved using artificial fillers or implants. Surgeons say the combined technique has a lower risk of complications than conventional lower eyelid surgery - in which fat and wrinkled skin are removed from below the eye - because it involves less cutting. via @Telegraph

Sample your breast implant size with this bra

Mark Henley, a British surgeon, has developed a "try before you buy"-type bra that allows patients to try out various-sized girls for two weeks, and the results are a bit surprising: Women who use the new technique tend to select bigger boobs once they have surgery compared to women who don't elect for a trial run. via @jeffreymarvelmd

Stripper convicted of fraud after spending 9K in food stamps on plastic surgery

An exotic dancer who has been accused of spending more than $24,000 worth of federal aid on plastic surgery was sentenced on Thursday to 1 1/2 years in federal prison for her crimes. The woman testified during her sentencing that the $9,187 worth of cosmetic enhancements, the $1,100 sound system, and other expensive items were gifts from men she met as a dancer at strip clubs in West Palm Beach and Miami.

More teenage girls having breast reduction surgeries because of increasing bustlines

According to Women's Wear Daily, the median breast size in America jumped from a 36C in 2000 to a 36DD in 2010. Increases in the average national breast size and the willingness of plastic surgeons to operate on teenage girls have caused an rise in the number of breast reduction surgeries offered in America. Though the reconstructive surgery was generally suggested only for girls who were at least 18-years-old, the procedure has become more common. via @MailOnline
