Outrage over 'sponsor a boob job' website

Plastic surgeons slam 'degrading' circus

Build a business case: developing custom apps

The British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS)* has administered a righteous shoeing to a website offering girls the chance to pitch for a boob job and chaps the opportunity of sponsoring the enhancements.

The offending site, myfreeimplants.com, asks the ladies: "Have you ever wanted bigger breasts? But couldn't afford the expensive costs of surgery? Here is your opportunity to earn Free Breast Implants!"

Gentlemen, meanwhile, are enticed with: "Help the girl of YOUR dreams, get the body of her dreams. Develop a connection with a girl of your choice and help her earn Free Breast Implants!"

Well, BAAPS has slammed the whole exercise as "degrading" and has warned British women "that the process was entirely inappropriate for what should be a life-changing decision".

The BAAPS press release explains:

The BAAPS have learned that UK women are being lured into joining the 'myfreeimplants.com' site, where they post photos of themselves and a personal profile, meant to entice men to donate money to pay for their breast augmentation surgery. Benefactors are then allowed unrestricted access to all profiles, are able to 'send messages to the ladies' as well as 'purchase any personal products the ladies may have for sale' and even 'receive custom photos of your favourite girls (you may even request specific outfits)'.

Consultant plastic surgeon and BAAPS president Douglas McGeorge piled in with: "This is a wholly inappropriate way to proceed with what should be a serious decision made by a fully informed patient. The site's promise that there are 'no right or wrong' cases is frightening - clearly there is no proper medical assessment of candidates, which at best could lead to disappointment, at worst, to someone's health being endangered."

Adam Searle, consultant plastic surgeon and former BAAPS president, thundered: "I thought I could no longer be appalled by the circus-like atmosphere surrounding plastic surgery - but this is really quite shocking. The invitation for women to post suggestive photos, sell personal items and chat with strangers over the Internet in exchange for a breast augmentation is just plain degrading."

Although myfreeimplants.com is evidently a professional operation, this is not the first time gals have pitched for Bulgarian airbags online. Long-term readers will recall the case of 24-year-old Michel, who sent out a plea to boost her "itty-bitty boobies" from a modest 34A to a mouth-watering pair of "big tatas (o)(o) !!!"

History agreeably records that she pulled it off, and deployed her "new big boobs on June 6th, 2003", or "D-Day" as she wittily adds. In fact, that should actually be "C-Day", as the snaps demonstrate. ®
