Schwarzenegger Vetoes Cosmetic Surgery Bill
from Los Angeles Times
A measure intended to prevent cosmetic surgery-related deaths fell victim to a rash of vetoes by Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger. The bill was written after the death last November of Donda West, mother of rapper Kanye West. The 58-year-old woman died one day after breast reduction and liposuction surgery, and an autopsy found health problems, including high blood pressure and cardiac artery blockage. The cosmetic surgery bill, AB 2968 by Assemblywoman Wilmer Amina Carter (D-Rialto), would have required people to undergo a physical examination, give a complete medical history and get a doctor's clearance before undergoing plastic surgery. It received almost-unanimous support in the Legislature. More

from Los Angeles Daily News
Trying to compete in a tight job market or to simply keep the signs of aging at bay, more patients are using plastic to pay for cosmetic surgery lest their appearance go the way of the sagging economy. Calabasas real estate agent Diane P. considers the $8,000 breast augmentation she put on her credit card simply a cost of doing business, the same as the Botox and Restylane treatments she uses to disguise the tiny wrinkles and lines that come with being 44.
