Getting Back At Your Ex– By Having Surgery
- Posted on: May 14 2013
This is from an article I wrote for CNN.com that just posted today. Hope you enjoy it:
“Dr. Youn, I want the works.”
Carol, an attractive Caucasian woman in her mid-forties, sat across from me in the consultation room. Her eyes stared into mine, unwavering.
“What do you mean by ‘the works?’”
“I want to enlarge my breasts, flatten my tummy, lift my neck, and skinny my thighs. Oh, and I want my eyes to tilt like Megan Fox’s, and I want you to plump my lips like Angelina Jolie’s.” She puckered and smacked her lips.
“Carol, that’s a lot of plastic surgery. Are you sure you need all this? Why do you want to have so much done?”
She paused. Her face flushed a bright shade of crimson red.
“Because,” she seethed, “My husband left me for a younger woman.
“And I want revenge.”
Revenge plastic surgery is becoming more and more common. A survey by the Transform Plastic Surgery Group in the United Kingdom found that over a quarter (26%) of their patients were recently divorced women. Eleven percent of their patients were newly single men.
Even Hollywood is getting involved in revenge surgery. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Brandi Glanville recently revealed in her book, Drinking and Tweeting and Other Brandi Blunders, that she spent $12,000 to undergo rejuvenation of her private parts after breaking up with her then-husband Eddie Cibrian. She even paid for it with his credit card.
