Okay, so I was listening to the radio today and they were talking about boob jabs. What the Fuck? Boob jabs? So I did a little research and this is what I found.
The Boob Jab is a new procedure which is gaining popularity. Apparently it is a nonsurgical method of breast augmentation, where a hyaluronic acid injectable filler called Macrolane is injected via a 20 cm needle into the breast to augment it. The procedure costs $4000-7000 and lasts approximately 12-18 months.
Shit, for that kind of money why not just a boob job. It is a one time cost and they boobs are there to last (although it is recommended to have your silicone implants replaced every 10 years).
People are saying that having a filler injected into your boobs leaves them more natural looking and feeling, unlike implants. The down side is that with a Jab you can only increase your boobs one full cup size (possibly one and half). Silicone can leave you deathly ill if it were to leak into your blood stream, however hyaluronic acid occurs naturally in the body. Hyaluronic acid is not FDA approved. And any large amount of substance injected into your body can cause granular formation (lumps) Who the hell wants lumpy breasts? It all seems like a bunch of bullshit to me, but hey that’s just my opinion. What in the world will they think of next (I think I’ve heard people talk about Botox injections in the boobs!)?
