The perfect belly button...?  

This is fucking ridiculous. I thought I had seen everything when that guy on MTV got calf implants, but apparently the amount of things that people can find "wrong" on their bodies is never-ending. The new craze: belly button augmentation. I wish I was kidding. Costing a whopping $5,000 - $7,500, an "umbilicoplasty" can involve a number of things: turning an "outie" into an "innie," making navels more diamond-shaped, making navels less deep, or even removing the navel completely. Um, WHY?! So you can look like Kyle XY?

Among other what-the-fuck new plastic surgery crazes: downsizing the labia, G-spot injections, and vaginal rejuvenation (basically "restoring" one's virginity). 1,030 vaginal rejuvenations were done in 2006 alone - a 30% increase from the year before. What is going ON?

    If beauty standards have historically been indicators of wealth, then this makes total sense. Still sick and ridiculous, but beauty must = $$.

    Not to mention beauty is an industry that will only continue to make larger and larger profits by inventing more problems complete with their solutions...with a hefty price tag.

    I think you're right, this is ridiculous and I think it'd be nice if you can add something else, I know, something explicative and maybe deepest than this little post. 2j3j

    It is ridiculous they spending millions of dollars on insignificant things of beauty.
    True, we all have our flaws but it makes you unique person.
