To Botox or not to Botox?

Image
It all started innocently enough. 

I had an ongoing eye twitch related to a medical condition. We tried everything to fix it.
“Surely there’s a pill I can take for this?” I demanded with frustration to the eye specialist.

“Well, we can try Botox in your eyelid,” she replied without hesitation, before proceeding to tell me it was perfectly safe and this was, after all, Botox’s original intended use: “to paralyse muscles that spasm”.

I started grinning widely and irrationally, which was a strange response for someone who had thus far eschewed Botox, fillers and everything, really (the most I’d ever had was the occasional old-school facial).

But here was a serious doctor; a thoroughly practical, sensible, trustworthy woman telling me that Botox was safe.

So I tried it. And it was no big deal. It didn’t even really hurt. It opened the floodgates.

Across the strip it read: "They Attract".

But as the vans trundled around the streets, they left a trail of carnage in their wake with 517 accidents being reported.

As police started to get complaints from irate drivers they sent out patrols on a mission to ban the boob from the Moscow roads.

Motorist Ildar Yuriev, 35, said: "I was on my way to a business meeting when I saw this truck with a huge photo of breasts on its side go by.

"Then I was hit by the car behind who said he had been distracted by the truck.

"It made me late and left my car in the garage and although I am insured I am still out of pocket."

A spokesman for the Sarafan Advertising Agency that organised the promotion said: "We are planning to bring a new advertising format onto the market, encouraging companies to place …

Man was "Glassed" in the face in unprovoked assault by random drunk man.
Following reconstructive plastic surgery he took a photo everyday with iPhone app "Everyday" to track the scars healing.

Video posted to show people that while damage after surgery/an assault may look bad initially, after months of healing the scars dramatically improve.
