The trailer for the new E! reality series “Bridalplasty” is out and it gives us a shocking glimpse at the lengths 12 competing brides will go to for their something new!
Promoted as the only series in which the winner “gets cut,” we see a bride whose body-alteration plan includes a brow lift, chin implant, buttocks lift, lip augmentation, liposuction, tooth veneers, dermabrasion, and ear pinning.
Why Bargain Plastic Surgery Will Cost You in More Ways Than One
As the economy has sputtered and sunk these past couple of years, the billion-dollar cosmetic-surgery industry has also experienced a dip in sales after a decade of double-digit-percent growth.
“Plastic surgery is feeling the effects of the recession, just like many other sectors of the marketplace,” said American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery President Dr. Renato Saltz in a statement. “Growth in demand will likely return as the recession eases and baby boomers’ offspring begin to explore surgical options.”
In the meantime, a new trend has sprung up in our youth-obsessed society: an increase in potentially dangerous cheap plastic surgery. Billboards advertising $2,999 bargain boob jobs from a “surgeon to the stars” have sprouted on the California 405 Freeway, a sign in the Midwest proclaims you can “buy one implant, get one free,” while an advertisement near Clearwater, Florida brags $8 Botox injections. Still, as horror stories like the former Miss Argentina who died at age 38 following a butt augmentation prove, bargain-basement procedures have their price.
