What's Wrong With This Picture?

What’s wrong with this picture?
What is the fastest growing market for cosmetic surgery in men…for the second year running?
What is the #1 cosmetic surgery performed on women?
That’s easy, breast enlargement.
Any guesses for the men?
Sadly, and unfortunately, way too graphically…it is male breast reduction.
This bizarre and unnatural dichotomy of breast reduction in men and breast enlargement in women reminds me of joke told by comedian Stephen Rice.
“I bought a humidifier and a de-humidifier and I put them both in a room, closed the door, and let them fight it out.”
I wonder how that would work?

In any event, is any of this aesthetic surgery really practicing medicine?

One definition, in the Merriam-Webster, for the word “practice” is:

to take advantage of someone

That being the case, the response to your question is a resounding YES!
