Vermillion Dollar Lips


This little item comes to you via Dr. Jimmy, the rock ‘n roll dentist. He sent me the promo in the mail… with no note. Because, of course, none was needed. Who else but the MFTA would appreciate this to its fullest.

Speaking of fullest, how ’bout them lips. Yowza! When they talk Vermillion Dollars, they aren’t joking around. I cannot begin to tell you how much I love the name of this technique. It’s like a bad SNL skit.

For those who are interested in more details – or would like to get themselves a set of these babies – here is more information about lip and perioral augmentation.

Every once in awhile I like to post about plastic surgery. It intrigues me the lengths that people will go in the name of ‘perfection’. There is the botox route, and of course vaginal cosmetic surgery (yeh, that’s not freaky). Then there is the cosmetic surgery center that thinks insulting their potential market is a good marketing technique. (more on this group later this week). The more festive like to make it into a social event.

Don’t get me wrong, contrary to what many believe, I am not anti plastic surgery. There are many instances where a little nip and tuck can really help someone who has a drastic body flaw that makes them uncomfortable. The origination of plastic surgery was just that. Helping people feel better about themselves. But some of this stuff is pretty damn scary if you ask me. There is an epidemic of obsessive addiction to strive for the unattainable.

And let’s face it, are these the words you want uttered as you leave the room:

‘Jeez, did she ever have work done!’

    I could say oh so much. But I won’t.

  2. Ah, c’mon Liz, why hold back on this one?

  3. It is hard to top a great set of lips. I totally agree that plastic surgery was made available to those who want to enhance their looks, in essence, to boost self esteem. One cannot deny the gratifying results that plastic surgery can produce. Just take a look at those lips!

  4. Doc, call me crazy but I am thinking you don’t have a whole lot of objectivity here.

    I mean the lip comment; I am sure more guys are turned on by them than women thinking that having them will boost their self esteem.

    As the mom of a daughter I would hate to think that her self esteem would be centered around those babies.

    I think the lips are only that big when the woman is lying on her back.
