New York Post Online Edition: CUP & GOWN

My vote as the sickest shit I’ve posted today.  But, I am not to blame.  Somebody’s parent’s are.


STRAIGHT Cs: As her graduation present, Heather Panzner, of Hauppague, L.I., went from a lithe 19-year-old to her busty 34C figure now, thanks to saline implants.

June 14, 2004— Forget the convertible. A boob job is the latest must-have on your teen daughter’s graduation list.

The number of 18-year-olds who underwent breast-implant surgery nearly tripled last year from 3,872 in 2002 to 11,326 in 2003, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

“There is a trend in which parents are giving implants as a gift, including as a graduation present,” said Dr. Stephen Greenberg, who practices in Woodbury, L.I., and Manhattan.

Popular, well-endowed teen idols, like Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan, as well as reality-TV shows like “Extreme Makeover” and “The Swan,” have made some girls dislike their own bodies, experts said.

“The media and fashion industries emphasize breasts and a curvaceous figure,” said Dr. Leroy Young, co-chair of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery’s breast-surgery committee. “There’s no advertising [for implants] targeting that age group, but the images are all around them.”

Docs say most young women seek the enhancements out of frustration with the way
