File this under Plastic Surgery Procedures That Scare The Shit Out Of Us: The "boob jab" (no, not a boob job) involves having one's breasts injected with a hyaluronic acid-based filler. Patients are said to go up a cup size, will most likely emerge bruised, and if they want to keep their faux-boobs, they'll have to have the procedure repeated annually, for $4,000 a pop — no pun intended — because after 12-months, the hyaluronic acid is absorbed by the body, causing deflation. Verdict: Do. Not. Want. [BellaSugar]

@onestrawplz: Exactly. I've read (I'm a geek, ok?) that the Restylane and Juvederm mixtures they put in your (well, not mine, at least, not yet) lips and cheeks have a percentage of hyaluronic acid in them, because it's, like, a moisture-protecting compound that your body needs anyway.

The only thing that does make me a bit jitty is that I was at the dermo for a real checkup (moles and stuff; my motto is that if you have a good dermo and a good dentist, you don't really have to see another stupid uninvested doc b/c your skin & gums can tip you off to things potentially going wrong elsewhere in ur bod) and she said that the problem with the fillers is that every time you get them done, you need more and more.

So the first time you get the injection you might just need a few hundred ccs; the, like, fourth time, you need a VAT of the stuff.

Just FYI.
