When I first saw this headline on CNN for KHOU’s story, I wanted to puke. I mean, WTF? What idiotic parents think this is a good idea? This isn’t a Corvette, it’s invasive surgery. What kind of superficial world do we live in?
But then I watched the whole video.
The father seemed sincerely interested in boosting his daughter’s self-esteem. And the surgeon’s view re: high school teasing resonated with me. If a “tan” operation existed in 1988 and my parents would have paid for it, I’d have been under the knife faster than you can say “Casper,” which is a name I heard often in high school. Or “Milk.”
So, I dunno what’s right in this case.
What do you think? Are boob jobs a proper high school graduation gift?
