  4. Something else happened when I was involved with a post mastectomy reconstruction. My arms near fell off holding the retractors trying to create a pocket for the plastic surgeon.

  5. When I was doing a plastics rotation in med school, the diagnosis on the OR reports for the boob jobs was "mammary hypoplasia". I kid you not.
