A cosmetic plastic surgeon in Miami is currently under investigation for hiring a band to write a song encouraging a Jewish teen with a large nose to have a nose job. The doctor offered a free rhinoplasty, free airfare, and free lodging to whomever made the video and received the most hits on YouTube.
The Groggers, a Jewish punk-rock band, took the plastic surgeon’s offer. They wrote a song and created a music video which encourages a nose job on a young adult. In return, the doctor performed a rhinoplasty on the lead singer.
These decisions have caught the eye of the media, as well as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. The doctor in question is currently under investigation by the Society for Unethical Behavior as a result of these actions.
Rhinoplasty is a surgical procedure and should be taken seriously. Patients considering the surgery should consider all of the benefits and risks. As a rhinoplasty specialist in Charlotte, I spend time with all of my patients to help them make an educated decision.
