A young plastic surgery intern gets tired of watching exciting developments in other fields (artificial hearts, etc). He finds a current, safe type of breast implants. All he has to do is convince his supervising surgeon this will work, and find a volunteer for the first patient. They gain immense financial success as cosmetic breast augmentation surgeries become accepted and frequented in American culture, but follow different paths. One becomes a narcissist interested in developing and implanting larger-sized implants popular with erotic dancers and female porn stars. The other continues to pursue a more serious, clinical approach for the everyday woman. Written by

Prior to that the safety inspection sticker was rectangular (the rectangular inspection sticker was reintroduced in 2002 with the Texas silhouette in the center). In slow motion a "7" can be seen in the sticker indicating it expires in 1997 and was issued sometime in 1996. See more
