The Professor reports that nearly 300,000 women last year sought breast implants, a statistic Robert Stacy McCain does not in any way endorse:
I have long campaigned to discourage breast-enhancement surgery. While a trend away from mammoplasty — a return to the natural order, breast-wise — will likely lead to a relative scarcity of extra-large breasts, our patients will be able to compensate for the resulting shortage of C- and D-cups by staring twice as long at A- and B-cups.
Dan Collins will explain that business about “our patients.”
As a practicing leg man, I am not subject to this particular affliction. (Which is a lie, but you knew that.) That said, I must remind you that by far the nicest, um, enhancement I’ve ever been privileged to see at close range was a reduction: from double Ds and backaches to a cheerfully perky just-this-side-of-C. It was the kind of work that corroborates one’s belief in private-sector medicine, among other things.
