    Just more fools and their money going separate ways. what on earth would drive people to inject one of the most virulent and dangerous bacteria into their FACES to save a few wrinkles? what are they thinking? oh wait a minute, ---answered my own question----they are NOT thinking. Vanity sure has a HIGH price eh?

    I hadn't even heard of botox injections until a month ago. My best friend was telling me about it. I couldn't believe it!! Why would anybody do something so stupid! Don't these people realize that we will not stay young forever and that aging is a normal process. So why not be happy with who your are and what you look like. I really have a hard time liking stupid people. You just want to slap them and tell them to wake up!

    One of the "victims" actually went on camera to show this horrific scar that the liposuction left. She described a nasty infected wound and showed a pile of ER bills that she incurred after the fact trying to beat the infection. When the reporter said "what were you thinking?" she just shrugged her shoulders and mumbled something about saving a buck or 2. Man did she pay in the long run, both physically and financially.
    Bob, you just slay me!!!! I couldn't stop laughing!!!! I'll ahve to dig up that Home Insertion Swan Ganz instruction sheet and post it. Maybe I better not, it might give the HMO people bad ideas!!!

    ok...question... if these people that were performing these procedures had no medical background, how did they get their hands on Botox? and what were they doing the liposuction with a vacuum cleaner?
