Almost everyone's breasts look good in Hollywood.
From Anne Hathaway and Victoria Beckham to Catherine Zeta-Jones, it doesn't matter if you're 20 or 50; when you get on that red carpet in your designer dress, you've got to get it right.
Said to be the biggest breakthrough since Botox, carboxy therapy can eradicate wrinkles and stretch marks on your de colletage and take years off your skin.
It has recently been made available in Britain by Parisian doctor Jules-Jacques Nabet, who says: "Nothing else works like it for loose skin and stretch marks. It means there is no need for surgery in many cases. The effects are revolutionary."
Carbon dioxide is injected just under the surface of the skin using a fine needle. Enthusiasts say the extra oxygen between cells stimulates the production of collagen.
The result, say practitioners, is fewer fat cells and firmer, younger-looking skin. The results on stretch marks and scars are permanent, but doctors suggest that to maintain reduced cellulite levels, you should have boosters every six months.
Patients noted an improvement in the appearance of their cleavage. Fine lines vanished and skin looked smooth and youthful.

Maureen Dowd is deeply saddened.
I will gladly sign up as a carbon credit. I could probably offset a small country. (All to save the planet, don’t you know!!!)
Anything more than a handful-or a mouthful- is a waste anyway.
I offer a massage treatment that is guaranteed to increase a woman’s bust size 2 cups or more. GUARANTEED.
Together, we could save a continent! ;)
And where does the C from Co2 go?
Carbon poisoning can be dangerous. Just ask Al Gore. He has a terminal case.
Why not just use plain O?
If it takes a few fat cells along with it, who cares??? ;O)
Gives new meaning to “Gas Bags”
What a scam! Carbon dioxide is a waste product of your cells. The oxygen in the carbon dioxide is not available for the cells to use. That's what you breathe out.
Sugar + oxygen = energy + carbon dioxide + water.
Might as well use helium for uplift...
The new research on BOTOX claims it migrates from the face to the brain.
Course the Hollywoodians are already braindead..... could be the reason why it took so long for the research to catch up.
Helium and CO2 are dangerous. My patented, "hands on" massage system works or your money back. Using my system a womens bust will increase 2 cup sizes. GUARANTEED.
How does it work? I gently
fondle massage the women's tits, boobs, hooters breast for two weeks. Call now. No checks.
I agree for the most part. Most days I'm happy with just a hamburger, but somtimes I want a triple whopper with cheese.
(Not reason, just figgered you should be pinged. Ponged. Poked. Prodded. ....)
A friend of ours who did the beauty pageant circuit thing in the early 90’s claimed that she and others would get saline infusions into the breasts and butt to gain temporary fullness. To me that always explained mystery up/down boobs like Britney Spears.
Do you have any links on the research. My mother-in-law has to get botox shots for a nerve twitch (not cosmetic) on a regular interval.
I also heard the contestants spray their rears and boobs to keep bathing suits anchored while they parade before the judges.
Personally I prefer the real look like Meg Ryan’s wilted twins. If aliens watched the status of our species by what was broadcast on satellite television signals, they would arrive here and would wonder where the other species was hiding?
There’s that awful CO2 again.
Botox Study Shows Migration to the Brain
Date Published: Thursday, April 3rd, 2008
A new Botox study indicates that the antiwrinkle treatment could actually migrate from a recipients face to the brain. Botox is made with botulism toxin, one of the worlds most poisonous substances, which can lead to a paralyzing illness. Word of this latest Botox study - published in the latest issue of the Journal of Neuroscience - comes just weeks after the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) announced that it was beginning a safety review of Botox and other similar drugs.
Botox, which is made with botulinum toxin type A, is approved in the US for treatment of conditions such as blepharospasm (spasm of the eyelids), cervical dystonia (severe neck muscle spasms), and severe primary axillary hyperhydrosis (excess sweating). Botox Cosmetic, which also uses botulinum toxin Type A, is approved for temporary improvement in the appearance of moderate to severe facial frown lines. A similar drug, Myobloc, is made from botulinum toxin Type B, and is approved for the treatment of adults with cervical dystonia.
According to the FDA, there have been reports of Botox, Botox Cosmetic and Myobloc reactions that are suggestive of botulism, which occurs when botulinum toxin spreads in the body beyond the site where it was injected. The most serious cases had outcomes that included hospitalization and death, and occurred mostly in children treated for cerebral palsy-associated limb spasticity. Use of botulinum toxins for treatment of limb spasticity (severe arm and leg muscle spasms) in children or adults is not an approved use in the U.S.
Now, scientists from the Italian National Research Councils Institute of Neuroscience in Pisa who were conducting experiments with Botox in rats have found that the toxin can make its way to the brain in those lab animals. Although rats and humans have a different physiology and their responses may vary, the researchers said say the results should lead to more research.
In the study, the whisker muscles of rats were injected with the toxin. Within three days, the scientists discovered traces of potentially deadly botulism in the rodents brain stems. The studys author, Matteo Caleo, said the toxin also moved from one hippocampus, which controls long-term memory and spatial navigation, to the hippocampus on the other side of the rats brain. The botulism toxin was still present in the rats brains after six months.
Last month, another Botox study conducted by researchers at the University of Calgary experimenting on cats also found that the botulism toxin from Botox could migrate to other parts of the body. The Calgary team injected the toxin into a muscle at the back of the leg of cats. Four weeks later, the time it takes for Botox to have its full effect, they measured the strength of this muscle, and that of a neighboring muscle. The Botox study revealed the toxin passed easily into the surrounding muscles and weakened all the muscles in the area. The results support other research that has already shown that botulinum can pass through tissue surrounding muscle.
Allergan, the California-based company that makes Botox, told the UK newspaper The Daily Mail that the Italian research was not conclusive and contradicted previous findings. The authors used a laboratory preparation of botulinum toxin and did not use Botox, said a spokesman. Data suggests that different preparations of botulinum toxin react differently in both the laboratory and in clinical practice.

You are a great humanitarian. Your methods will be taught in all the best schools.

Do they look ridiculous, absurd, even, yes. Would I turn her away for that reason alone? No. But your point is well taken.
Ladies, please, turn the tv off and step away from the implant doctor ad. A lot of guys might talk smack about implants, but when it gets down to brass tacks, if you show interest in a guy lack of implants aren’t much going to matter (and if they do, count your lucky stars you’re not saddled with that shallow person). 999 times out of 1000, the way you were born is just fine. Truth be told, implants imply a dissatisfaction with your appearance, which can be a red flag to some of us.
So round. So firm. So fully packed. LOL
Trademark and patent by Drango. No checks.
They look like tumors.
Ditto what Windcatcher said. Breasts not in proportion to the rest of the body are not attractive, and the sought after very thin (almost skeletal) look is completely unappealing.
Those extremes are flags that there are other problems with the lady in question. And there is nuttin purty bout dat.
