Brazil SAPs #1

The girls of Ipanema may be so tall, tan, and lovely due to something other than the Bossa Nova;
Brazil recently surpassed the United States in plastic surgeries, with 1.5 million procedures in 2013, according to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
A few of whom may be sorry, like this Miss Bum Bum contestant;
The 27-year-old [Andressa] Urach, arguably Brazil’s most outspoken advocate of advancement through cosmetic surgery, recently went into septic shock and was placed on life support after a botched operation to augment her thighs, sparking a debate about the risks Brazilian women will take for beauty at a moment when the nation has surpassed the U.S. as the world’s plastic surgery capital.
It led the runner-up in Brazil’s “Miss Bum Bum” contest to express regret “that I put that poison in my body, mostly because of having too much vanity.”
Not that it was her fault;
Urach told Rede TV that she blamed “society, which unfortunately holds a standard of beauty in which you have to be perfect.”
