There has been some hype (and controversy) recently about the idea of using adjustable implants that allow individuals to change the size of their breasts after plastic surgery. The idea is to allow women to change their minds with regards to size 3 to 6 months after their initial breast enhancement procedure. The technology is similar to what is used on a temporary basis on women who have mastectomies.
The idea behind this is that so many individuals get conservative- sized implants only to determine after that they would have liked larger ones. Swapping out the implants for a bigger size then means another invasive surgical procedure. In order to increase the size of the implants, there is a tiny port inserted under the skin. This allows a surgeon to use a needle to insert more saline or remove some.
The procedure is controversial due the potential risks of leaving ports in for 6 months then removing them. However, there are some in the industry that also argue that it leaves patients with a greater level of satisfaction.

Loss of collagen and elastin are the key reasons why your skin starts to sag as you age. When you lose collagen because of too much sun exposure, an unhealthy diet or from a poor skincare routine, you’ll notice fine lines and wrinkles developing around the eyes and mouth, and loose, rugged-looking skin. These effects can be reversed with skin tightening treatments such as SkinTyte. SkinTyte from Sciton has been featured in the media, and is an innovative way to strengthen, tone and tighten the skin.
It seems that it wouldn’t be a Miss Universe pageant without a good scandal, and this year, the issue relates to plastic surgery. Jennifer Hawkins, crowned 2004′s Miss Universe, was gossiped about by this year’s Miss Australia, Scherri-Lee Biggs. She accused Miss Universe of having “too much plastic surgery” and essentially being a bad role model to the young women that look up to her.
Although drama is not uncommon in the pageant world, this gossip was more surprising since Hawkins isn’t even a part of this year’s competition as she was crowned the winner during the last one.
The Plastic Surgery Debate in the Pageant World
There is some debate about how women should be representing themselves physically when participating in a pageant. Some believe that a competition based on looks (primarily) should assess natural beauty only. As a result, those that choose to help enhance their looks fall under scrutiny.
However, in this circumstance the individual making the accusations has allegedly tried to reach out and apologize to the former Miss Universe. She claims that she was misinterpreted and never meant to be malicious.

Six Pack Without Weight Loss?
Big Brother star Darryn Lyons, an Australian that participated on the UK show, has a body contour procedure done which is not yet available in the United States.
