How can someone get pro-bono cosmetic plastic surgery procedures done?

Q. Does anyone know of a way a person could be considered as a medical students practice subject, and maybe could act as their practice subject throughout their cosmetic plastic surgery training, in order to receive cosmetic plastic surgical procedures free of charge?

Or is there a way to be considered for pro-bono cosmetic plastic surgery?

No surgical procedures are permitted on patients by medical students anywhere. However a doctor taking an internship (which means that they are no longer a student, and are a licensed physician) would be allowed to practice their skill under the watchful eye of a specialist physician or hospital team, and then be able to perform medical procedures. Since a qualified surgeon is always present and either watches or assists, in most cases this procedure would still be a fee procedure. In essence since the specialist is there you would be paying for their expertise as usual.
Pro-bono plastic surgery has been performed by various doctors for reconstructive surgery, when the patient is in need and cannot afford the procedure, and of course for promotion of their skill, as is seen in Doctor 90210 where the video taping is aired for commercial purposes, so the company in this case (FOX) is actually paying for the procedure so that they can tape it and broadcast it.....and the patient gets the procedure free. Then of course there are other shows, such as Extreme Makeover where the same applies and the patient gets the procedure free.
Insurance regulations are rather strict on Doctors, and giving away services for free can result in many negative consequences ...if something was to go wrong, the patient can claim free might have resulted in substandard care....etc etc...so Doctors as a rule do not do this unless there are extenuating circumstances.
That being said, I do know that there is a website where ladies may get breast augmentation ... free...by joining the site and posting pictures etc...so that viewers can contribute if they like them, and the money contributed once it reaches the necessary amount to get the surgery is then sent to a qualified plastic surgeon to perform the augmentation, after which the patient posts 'after pictures' etc....but in essence the procedure is 'free' ... http://myfreeimplants.com/ as was featured on the Today Show.....

How to stop comparing yourself to others?
Q. I'm 16 and constantly see pictures of celebs/models in the magazines and feel really depressed. I wish I looked like them as there always so beautiful and admired for it. Everyone says that we should stop comparing ourself to others but it's really hard, especially when you see pictures of celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Megan Fox splashed all over the papers every day. Men love them and women want to be them. It really gets my self esteem low and sometimes I don't feel like lifes worth living becaues I'm so ugly.

A. Hi there. I am totally with you in this one. Comparing ourselves to others is one of those inevitable things that us humans do (especially us girls.) I'm 25, and when I was 16, I was exactly like you. I doubt any human being on this planet can say they haven't compared themselves to another person at one point in time. "Oh, I wish I had her legs." "I wish I had her hair etc." I'll give you some tips from my own experiences.

First of all, it's funny you should mention Kim Kardashian and Megan Fox, two of the celebrities in Hollywood who have have A LOT of plastic surgery. Google pictures of them from a few years back and you'll see, they've had a lot of work done. That's why it's silly to compare yourself to these models and celebrities. It's their JOB to look good (most of the time.) These people hire nutritionists/chefs/personal trainers/make up artists/hair stylists/clothes stylists/surgeons to look good. I'm pretty sure if any person on this planet had all this 'help' to look good, they would. And the thing is, these so called photos you see in magazines of celebrities are 99.9% of the time, NOTHING like the real person. You must remember on these photo shoots, the celebrities and models spend 3/4 hours getting their hair and make up done, using all the tricks of the trade to make their cheekbones look higher, hide all their blemishes etc, not to mention specialist lighting is used and airbrushed to within an inch of their life. If you think celebrities look exactly how they do in pictures, you'll be VERY disappointed if you ever met them in real life.

Second of all, beauty is subjective. No matter whether you're a celebrity or just a normal person walking the streets, there's always gonna be people who find you attractive and others who don't. There's certain celebrities who I find stunning but certain friends of mine don't. Just like when I was in school, there were certain guys I found really hot who my best friend thought was unattractive, and there were certain guys she fancied, that I thought were nothing special. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, not everyone is attracted to everyone. Even the HOTTEST celebrities, some people think are just average whilst others think their attractive.

Thirdly, what is comparing yourself to others going to achieve? You're never gonna BE them. In case you haven't noticed, you're stuck with you for quite a while so make the most of it. If you sit and waste your life away comparing yourself to others, you're gonna look back and wish you'd done things differently. We all get old, we all get wrinkles. Even the people you compare yourself to are going to get old and wrinkly one day. We're all in the same boat

Remember, no one is perfect. The celebrities you see are human beings too, they have insecurities. You may be looking at someone wishing you had their legs, while they may be looking at you wishing they had your lips or eyes etc. And although they may be blessed with looks or whatever, you may have something they wish they had. Although some may consider Kim Kardashian prettier than me, and oh how I'd love to have her long glossy hair and curves, she can't even hold down a marriage for 72 days, and I've been married to my gorgeous childhood sweetheart for just over two years and have a gorgeous 6 month old son! If she looked at my life, she might wish she had what I had. Looks don't equal happiness. I don't expect you to understand. When you're 16 you feel like its you against the world. As you start to grow older and you fall in love/get a career etc, you'll see there's SO much more important things then comparing yourself to models/celebrities (who don't even look how they do in pictures), and appreciate life for what it is! A blessing!

Why does having double eye lids mean and why are Asian people kind of obsessed with double eye lids?
Q. I'm not trying to be mean or racist but I am curious to now why asian people are obsessed with double eye lids. What does having double eye lids mean?

A. Pictures explain a whole lot better:
Without double eyelid, or known as a monolid

Basically, double eyelids make your eyes look bigger. Many Asians are obsessed with making their eyes look bigger, using eyelid tape (makes monolids have double eyelids), circle lenses, false lashes, eyeliner etc, and even to the extreme, surgery.

As you can tell by this picture: http://www.google.com/imgres?um=1&hl=en&tbm=isch&tbnid=PF0W5mJYfjo32M:&imgrefurl=http://abagond.wordpress.com/2010/07/21/asian-double-eyelid-surgery/&docid=eHW6613eldELkM&imgurl=http://abagond.files.wordpress.com/2010/07/beforeafter31.jpg&w=347&h=298&ei=WMViT_iHFaq1sQKOmcGcCw&zoom=1&iact=hc&vpx=599&vpy=195&dur=2967&hovh=208&hovw=242&tx=132&ty=47&sig=100082225901109288501&page=1&tbnh=169&tbnw=196&start=0&ndsp=12&ved=1t:429,r:3,s:0&biw=1241&bih=584 double eyelids make their eyes look bigger

How can I find a surgeon to make my eyes look more Asian?
Q. I really love Asian eyes and want to have Asian eyes. Is there a surgeon that can make them look more Asian or a procedure that will do it?? I have an Asian boyfriend and I love his eyes. He says mine are fine, but I hate them and want them to look more like I feel. Thanks

A. Yes, there are surgeries that can do that. You need to look into a cosmetic surgeon near your area... and make sure to do a lot of research on him/her, before you decide on which doctor.

They will most likely create an epicanthic fold on your inner eyes, as well as inject your eyelids with more fatty tissue in both your upper and lower lids.

Take in some pictures of Asians and half Asians, and tell them what you want...

Most likely, because of your other Caucasian features, you will not look 100% Asian, but you will look exotic and/or part Asian.
