Chasing shifting body ideals: Homework still a must

Blame it on Jennifer Lopez.

She and other entertainers with bodacious backsides – Beyonce, Nicki Minaj, and Kim Kardashian among them – have helped make many women feel insecure about yet another part of their bodies: their butts.

Once a piece of real estate that almost no woman would want to enlarge, the ideal butt for some now must be round as a balloon, perky, and well-defined. That’s hard to achieve naturally when you’re also striving for the anorexic look or fighting the sags and realignment that age and gravity inevitably bring.

Hence a new demand for butt-enhancing medical procedures – a desire that had tragic consequences recently when an English medical tourist died after black-market butt injections she received in a hotel room near Philadelphia International Airport.

A new scarless procedure known as TOGA is changing the face of bariatric surgery. This incision free treatment helps patients to lose weight as with other bariatric weight loss surgeries, but this procedure is doesn’t need a scalpel.

“This is quite different,” says Dr. Gregg Nishi of the Khalili Center for Bariatric Care in Beverly Hills. “You wouldn’t really even put it in the same category with the other bariatric surgeries.” He says that all of the other weight loss operations involve cutting through the stomach to get to the internal organs. TOGA on the other hand, is endoscopic.

“The TOGA is a new wave of technology which involves endoscopic procedures where you put devices down the mouth and in the esophagus and operate on the stomach from within,” describes Dr. Nishi.

Allergan gets the go-ahead to change market their gastric banding device to less obese patients.

The FDA has approved the marketing and use of the Lap-Band device for surgical weight loss to less obese patients. Last December, an advisory panel voted to approve this change and now that the official approval has been granted, the marketing changes can begin.

Lap-Band is made by Allergan, the same medical manufacturer that brings us Botox and Latisse. It shrinks the stomach so obese patients can more easily cut back on their eating and lose the dangerous extra pounds that may be threatening their lives.

Buttock Augmentation Safety

With 2 deaths in recent months making headlines, it’s important to identify how to be as safe as possible when undergoing buttock augmentation.

There has been concern recently regarding deadly buttock augmentation procedures performed using silicone injections. Claudia Adusei, a 20 year old student from London, traveled to Philadelphia where she underwent injections of silicone into her buttocks hoping to add volume and create the much sought after figure now popular. The injections were performed in her hotel room and she died a day later. The procedure is believed to have been performed by an unlicensed person who CNN reports is a transgender hip hop singer.
