And actually L-188 makes stupid assumptions. I never said that they didn't do it, I simply said that they should do more of it instead of giving free boob jobs
Really? Lets look at your actual quote.
If the military surgeons need something to practice on, maybe they could help out at hosiptals domestically and perform free surgery to those who can't afford it. No, that's too logical and would actually help people in our own country, we can't do that while Bush is in office.
Seems to me that your 17-18 year old mind is pretty definate.
I fail to see how plastic surgery skills will help battlefield operations. "Bad news, we can't fix your wound, but good news - we can bump you up to a double D!"
Plastic surgury and the use of it, goes way way beyond, the hollywood boob or nose jobs. There are some very legitimate uses for it.......especially in the military.
Actually repairing severe cosmetic wounds is very critical, and is why so many wounded troops comming out of Iraq get long stays at stateside hospitals. They are having damage repaired, faces and limbs rebuilt...ect...ect..ect.
No cosmetic surgury is not appropriate for Hawkeye and BJ
at the 4077, where the immediate concern is pt survival, but as the pt heals, it becomes very critical for quality of life.
A good non-military example, is when Tina Turner had her nose job, although she did have it "altered" to be more attractive in her mind, the basis for the plastic surgury was to repair the scar tissue that had formed and was causing her problems breathing. Of course, that scar tissue was a direct result of blunt trama injuries at the hands of Ike Turner, which in a way you could argue was simular to combat blunt for wounds.
That surgury was plastic surgury, but there was a very real medical basis behind it.
OBAMA-WORST PRESIDENT EVER....Even SKOORB would be better.
