What to get girls as graduation presents....breast implants???

From news.yahoo.com...


Experts See Surge in Teen Breast Implants


The number of 18-year-old girls getting breast implants has tripled in the last two years, according to experts, and their parents seemingly approve because they give the implants as graduation presents.


The New York Post, citing figures from the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, reported that the number of girls that age who got cosmetic implants went from 3,872 in 2002 to 11,326 last year.


"There is a trend in which parents are giving implants as a gift, including as a graduation present," Dr. Stephen Greenberg, who practices in Woodbury, L.I., and New York City, told the Post.


Experts said that girls are swayed into changing their looks by reality TV shows like "Extreme Makeover" and curvaceous young stars like Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan.


"The media and fashion industries emphasize breasts and a curvaceous figure," the paper quoted Dr. Leroy Young, co-chair of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery's breast-surgery committee, as saying. "There's no advertising [for implants] targeting that age group, but the images are all around them."

I heard that acouple days ago, its disgusting. Whats even worse is that the implants are PRESENTS from their PARENTS. Well, you cant see they aren't following someone's example.

you had me until i read "the new york post" and i stopped there.

the post is less a newspaper and more a waste of good toilet paper

"racism is dead, it died when MLK walked on a bridge and freed the slaves. Now we have a socialist Kenyan president who is not an American and if anyone mentions race they are a reverse racist (while racism is dead, reverse racism is alive and well.) #whattheyteachyouatfox"

I would have loved getting those as a present. I was really flat, I needed them. It's easy to rag on girls for getting implants, but being flat really sucks.
