At least four of the women in this season’s edition of Big Brother UK have had breast augmentation. Not surprising really, as recent reports indicate that the plastic surgery is on the rise in the UK. In fact, the article points out that the “UK market is valued in excess of £250 million and last year the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons said the number of surgical procedures had risen by more than a third to 22,000 operations.”
Now I’m not against women or men for that matter using plastic surgery to enhance their looks (heck – I’d like to have some fat sucked out) — but what I can’t understand is why some of the women getting breast augmentation, get them the size of watermelons. For example, one of the women on the show got implants so large that she needs to wear a size 30M bra. What the f*ck? They don’t look real, are out of proportion with the rest of the body and its just not attractive. Well at least not to me anyway.
Either way, it’s just sad that celebrity standards of beauty which we all know are airbrushed are now causing women to loose perspective and take things to the extreme.
