Boob’s, boobs, boobs!

Recent media competitions in both the UK and Australia in which boob jobs are being given away as prizes have been the target of criticism from plastic surgeon associations and governments alike.

In the UK, an FM radio station gave away a boob job to jubilant 27-year-old Nadine Pude who said she would buy “loads of new underwear and a bikini that really shows off my assets.”

The excited young lady won the competition by the radio station’s web site viewer’s choice, with 22% of the vote. She appeared in a video on a section of the Liverpool based, Juice FM website, jucetube.net

“I couldn’t believe it when I won, it was out of this world.

“I’m happy with my height, my waist, and my weight. But I always thought I was lacking a ’bit up top’.

“My fiance, Paul, was brilliant. He always said that if it made me happy, I should get a good job and save for a boob job”.

I’m sure he would say that.

“But now I’ve won the competition, he can’t wait to get his hands on them,” the ditzy Pude said.

I bet the fiance can’t wait.

Surgeon’s Not Happy

But the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons was not impressed, despite the publicity for their industry.

“The giving of a surgical procedure as a prize is an unbelievable, dangerous and highly unethical practice.

“The decision to perform any surgical procedure must be based on common sense, case selection, good surgical decision making and patient safety,” an angry Adam Searle from the BAAPS told reporters.

Controversy Down Under

Meanwhile, politicians from Australia said they were not happy at a boob job competition from a local magazine.

Jealous old bag, Helen.

The “win a boob job for your girlfriend” competition, held by the Australian arm of weekly men’s magazine Zoo, copped some flack from the Australian Minister for Communications Helen Coonan.

“The minister certainly sees that this is an example of very poor taste and to women it would also be considered to be very offensive and she has directed ACMA to look into the matter,” a spokesperson for the Minister said.

The New South Wales state government, where Zoo Magazine Australia is based in Sydney, said it was looking into the local Lotteries and Art Unions Act, which forbids anyone from offering cosmetic surgery as a prize.

But Zoo denied the competition was illegal, saying it had found a loop hole of sorts.

“The winner will get a cheque for $10,000. If they choose to spend it on surgery they can. We’ve checked out all the legals. It’s not breaking any rules.”

The competition, as in the United Kingdom, was the target for criticism from the Australian Society of Plastic Surgeons; who said the competition breached a number of trade practices and ethical guidelines.

The moral of the story?

If you want to successfully publicise your radio station and or magazine, boost your ratings and circulation?

Run a boob job competition.

It’s so simple.

Now, I’m off to get my copy of Zoo!
