This is so cool!
Some people are in dire need of vision restoration, and luckily for them, bionic eyes are now a real thing!
Stanford University is working on technology to restore the ability to see, especially in cases where
The fastest-growing kind of plastic surgery is chin augmentation.
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons has shown that chin surgery has grown by 71% from 2010 to 2011.
The rate of chin surgery actually grew more than Botox, liposuction and boob jobs combined!
Many people are claiming it's because of the trend of video conferencing at work and how they don't look as photogenic as they'd like.
Over 20,000 people received chin surgery in 2011.
The president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons said:
"The chin and jawline are among the first areas to show signs of aging. People are considering chin augmentation as a way to restore their youthful look just like a facelift or eyelid surgery.
We also know that as more people see themselves on video chat technology, they may notice that their jawline is not as sharp as they want it to be. Chin implants can make a dramatic difference."
Surgery is always dangerous no matter how simple the procedure, so getting cosmetic work done just for the sake of vanity doesn't seem worth it to us.
You're beautiful the way you are!

This is a case of where the title says it all!
Just kidding, they're not actually throwing handfuls of gummy bears into boobs — but they're taking one of the key things that makes a gummy bear a gummy bear: how it retains it's shape even when you squeeze it.
'Cuz you know them thangs gots to be squeezed! Ha!
The new FDA approved implant is becoming all the rage, and it's actually safer than the saline kind. Even if it ruptures, it keeps it's form!
It's actually a high-strength silicone gel, according to Dr. Grant Stevens (which is a total soap opera name):
“If you removed the shell covering, the silicone inside would retain its shape. I got tired of explaining to patients that they’re sort of like Jello—which, when you cut it in squares, holds its shape. One day I just said, ‘They’re like gummy bears.’"
The thing is this, though: don't eat them. They're not gummy bears and they probably do not taste good. Look and touch only.
Do U wanna get a pair??
There are so many odd things about that title.
Either way, it's true. Remember that fake butt doctor that was injecting
stupid patients with fake butt implants made out of things like Fix-A-Flat, superglue, cement and mineral oil?
The one that sent many people to real hospitals afterwards?? Her name was Oneal Ron Morris.
She also had an accomplice, an assistant, named Corey Eubanks. It was Eubanks (out on bail) that was on the taping of an episode of "The Cristina Show," a Spanish-language program.
Here's what he said happened:
"I was sitting there, talking to Cristina. The mother jumped out of the audience, came, and grabbed the syringe and hit me in the forehead."
Do absolutely absurd things happen to this person ALL THE TIME?? Eubanks' life, if it were a TV show, could never be believed!
We would read his auto-biography in a heartbeat.
