I regret nothing! Poor Argentinian girls must do what they have to do, to attract rich American politicians! My butt is so firm, St. Peter is bouncing quarters off of it as we speak! Ay, Dios mio!

Why is it that if I take out someone's gallbladder unnecessarily and they die during the procedure, it's malpractice?

Yet, if I do some completely unnecessary cosmetic procedure in a facility that doesn't even have advanced life support capabilities, it's just an accepted risk of the procedure.

Cosmetic surgeons will reap their karma eventually, or at least I hope they will.

Because one is Dr's carelessness and the other is patient's stupidity. Also, different countries had different rules/laws.

Who said anything about carelessness? I can perform the procedure perfectly to the letter and there is still a risk that you will die, perhaps from the anesthesia, perhaps from the stress of the operation. If, however, in the ensuing investigation it comes to light that you did not in fact meet all the criteria for the surgery, I am guilty of malpractice.

Perhaps I should phrase it another way to fit your analogy. If someone walks into my office and asks to have their gallbladder removed, but I can clearly see that they don't need it, how is that any different than performing elective plastic surgery?

All surgery is potentially fatal no matter how flawlessly it is performed. So why are elective cosmetic procedures even legal in the first place?

Poor woman and her family. World society demands beauty and youth. If nothing else this is a job related death because without a certain shape she is not employable.

The world can make all sorts of 'demands' some rational some not. It remains the individual's responsiblity to discriminate which ones to accept and which ones to reject, and not simply run with the herd.

I think it's sick for anyone to say they don't feel sorry that a person died simply because they died while undergoing a cosmetic procedure. She was the victim of an incompetent doctor, and that's sad. It's also sad that someone so beautiful felt she wasn't good enough as-is. I'm sure many of us can relate to that, so get off your high horses.

Where does it say she was selling products??

Darker is referring to the doctor selling his products, or rather his services.

Not sure what you mean by "Western Culture." South America is generally not included in standard definitions of the "West" (US and Western Europe), and cosmetic surgery is HUGE on that continent. Nose jobs are also all the rage in Iran. Western nations don't have the market cornered on vanity by any means.

What ever happened to respect for the dead? So the woman did something taboo to further her career. She should die from that? Unworthy of sympathy? Really?

I need to stop reading news article comments. They make me really sad.

I just can't feel sad for her. I can't feel sad for people who belligerently bring pain upon themselves.
04:23 PM on 12/01/2009
I can feel sad for her, but no more than for other, less fortunate people who have also suffered in the world. Also, I don't think 'belligerant' was the word you were looking for.

Isn't vanity one of the 7 deadly sins?

Nope, sorry not on the list: anger, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy, and gluttony.

I wonder where the opposites meet -- vanity and low self-esteem. If one is vain, then one projects a "this is me, I'm great, take it or leave it" I would think. (That modeling agency lady comes to mind, the one who said Tara Banks is fat). Low self-esteem would be saying, "I'm not really good yet because I have one imperfection; when that's fixed, maybe I'll be good enough."

She was so pretty and should of stopped there. Never should we play with what we were given because even if you go to the best surgeons complications that lead to death could happen. So sorry for her family.

Her life seemed to revolve beauty and appearance. Maybe not much different than live by the sword, die by the sword.

I'm gonna seem very cold about this butt I don't feel sorry for her.
