No breast implants, please

RIO DE JANEIRO – Two months before Rio’s famed Carnival gets under way, a samba school said it was looking for dancers “without silicone breast implants” and would offer a free costume in exchange.

The school wants to recruit 20 dancers “with beautiful and natural” breasts “whatever the size,” the news website G1 reported Friday, citing Paulo Menezes, Carnival producer for the Mocidade Independente de Padre Miguel samba school.

In this tropical country where the female body is flaunted, plastic surgery is very common.

Brazil ranks second only to the United States for the number of plastic surgery operations, with more than 800,000 annually. The most popular are liposuction, followed by breast implants, bum lifts and tummy tucks. (AFP)
