EVERYBODY KNOWS that plastic surgeons make crazy amounts of money. At first glance, that may seem a bit illogical - after all, plastic surgeons peddle in elective procedures, which are often not even covered by medical insurance. Yet, anybody who wasn't born yesterday also knows that people will do anything - not to be healthy of course, but to be prettier than thy neighbor.
Fake tits, botox injections and rhinoplasties are practically required accessories in certain parts of the country. Become a plastic surgeon in La Jolla or Los Angeles or, less obviously, Staten Island, NY (actually, if you've ever been to Staten Island, NY, the need for an army of plastic surgeons would become more obvious) - well, a "facial and plastic surgery practice" in any one of those places ensures you with a steady income for the rest of your life. Breast augmentations and lifts, acne, buttock augmentations and lifts, face lifts, hair replacement, neck lifts, tummy tucks, labiaplasties (Google it)... the sky is the limit when it comes to physical improvement of your fellow man's body. Well, mostly your fellow woman's body, actually - but, the number of men undergoing cosmetic plastic surgeries is rising steeply with each passing year.
Oh, and don't forget liposuctions: with so many millions of obese people in America, specializing in liposuctions is like tapping into a bottomless well of uhm... gravy (disgusting mental picture intended).
