Pippa Middleton's Perfect Posterior Leads to Demand For Bottom-Lifting Treatments in Britain.

Cosmetic surgeons in Britain report a 60 per cent increase for work on backsides after royal wedding. The frenzy surrounding Pippa Middleton’s derriere has led to a spike in bookings for bottom-lifting treatments in Britain.

Pippa Middleton as Maid of Honour for her Sister Catherine Middleton's Wedding to Prince William on April 29

Since last month’s royal wedding, cosmetic surgeons have reported a 60 per cent increase for work on British backsides.

One cosmetic clinic has even named a surgery, The Pip Package Perfect Posterior, which can cost up to £ 8,000.

Middleton became known around the world for her buttocks during her role as maid of honour for her sister Catherine’s wedding to Prince William on April 29 at Westminster Abbey.

“We are now seeing scores of female clients seeking the perfect bottom,” said Lesley Khan of London’s Harley Street Skin Clinic.

“A few years back everyone wanted the Jennifer Lopez look, but now everyone asks for a bottom like Pippa’s — curvy but not too peachy.” With William and Kate enjoying their honeymoon on a private island in the Seychelles, the British media have been turning their attention to Pippa Middleton and her rump.

In Madrid with ex

Photos of her boating with two pals in Madrid were splashed across the major UK papers yesterday as she enjoyed a day out with former flame George Percy, the son of the Duke of Northumberland.

Yesterday, the 26- year- old Percy came in handy on a boat trip in Retiro Park, Madrid’s largest park.

No one had to lift a finger as the son of the Duke of Northumberland — one of Britain’s richest men — showed off his rowing skills.

Party girl

Earlier, Pippa had dressed in a smart beige skirt, black jacket and heels, and partied until 4 am at a swanky bar, The Penthouse.

On Friday night the group spent the evening at the city’s exclusive Fortuna nightclub — Pippa carrying a bottle of champagne in her red bag.

And if it was a heavy night, Pippa wasn’t going to let it show, emerging on Saturday morning sporting dark sunglasses and wearing a strapless black- and- white spotted sundress as she led her friends on a shopping and sightseeing trip, tourist map in hand.

Pippa and Percy dated while at Edinburgh University and have been friends for nearly 10 years.

Fugu - Fish Which is 1,200 Times More Poisonous Than Cyanide

Fugu is the Japanese word for pufferfish or Blowfish and is also a Japanese dish prepared from the meat of pufferfish

If your chef is not certified (Certifications are given by the government of Japan after the chef passes an Exam) to serve it, it could be the last thing you eat. Because pufferfish is lethally poisonous if prepared incorrectly, fugu has become one of the most celebrated and notorious dishes in Japanese cuisine.


The Fugu or the blow fish is a fatuous-looking fish that has a peculiar defense mechanism. It gulps large amounts of water, filling its abdomen, inflating into a menacing spiky balloon that's twice its normal size, making it tough for predators to swallow it. While the flesh, skin, fins, and milt are eaten, the innards (intestine, eyes, kidneys, ovaries, and especially the liver) are highly toxic. One Fugu contains enough Tetrodotoxin to kill up to 30 people in a matter of seconds.


The puffer toxin paralyzes human muscles. Records reveal that 6.8 % deaths have occurred due to consumption in restaurants. In the last 10 years, 321 people have fallen ill and 26 people have died in Japan alone. If caught and cooked by a layman, chances of death shoot up to 90%. The fish is exported out of Japan only after it is cleaned thoroughly.

How they make it:

It is sliced, stuffed it with rice, garnished with some chopped chilli and served


A Fugu chef is given certification only if he samples what he serves, before handing it over to a patron. To make Fugu Sushi, They slice the clean lump of fish into thin slices, stuff it with a fistful of boiled rice before garnishing it with sliced green chillies. It's placed in a dish accompanied by soya sauce.


The fish is chewier than most others, even a tad sweet. It goes well with soya sauce, chive and bitter orange sauce.

Some Interesting facts about Fugu:

>>The Emperor of Japan is forbidden from eating it for his own safety.
>>Some professional chefs choose to leave behind a tiny bit of poison in the meat, leaving a prickly feeling and numbness on your tongue and lips.
>>In Japan, lanterns can be made from the bodies of preserved Fugu, hung outside restaurants, and sold as toys for kids and souvenirs to tourists.
>>Its poison, Tetrodotoxin, is 1,200 times more potent than cyanide.

Corset Piercing - Sewing Ribbons Into Skin is The Bizarre New Craze Sweeping the UK

A CORSET YOU’LL NEVER HAVE TO SLIP OFF: A new trend that’s making tongue and nipple piercing looking like kid’s play, involves sewing ribbons into a client’s skin

This BIZARRE new craze called ‘corset piercing’ is sweeping the UK. The painful trend involves sticking hoops into the skin and then threading them with ribbon to give a ‘corset’ effect.

Corset Piercing

Corset Piercing - Sewing Ribbons Into a Client’s Skin

The ‘ decoration’, which can cost up to £ 300 ( Rs 21,960), can be applied to any area of the body where the skin is loose enough to pinch in order to thread a needle through. Popular areas include the back, ribs and, in some cases, even the throat. Anyone who wants the unusual decoration must endure an hour of pain to achieve the effect. However, it’s only temporary since after a few weeks of wear the hooks simply grow out, leaving scars in their place.

The craze is the latest in the ‘ body modification’ phenomenon, which has seen people going to extraordinary levels in a bid to stand out from the crowd. Today it’s possible to be branded, scarred and even have silicone implanted under the skin to create bumps and ‘ horns’. Kooky popstar Lady Gaga is just one celebrity who has jumped on the bandwagon.

She sported bizarre flesh- coloured ‘ horns’ on her face during a television interview in February this year.

According to piercing experts, the ‘ corset’ modification is growing in popularity as more and more brave the pain. But consultant plastic surgeon Kevin Hancock, a council member of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons who works at Spire Murrayfield Hospital, Merseyside, warned of the problems it can cause. He added, “ I can’t believe it’s something that people would be attracted to.” Any piercing, superficial or otherwise, produces a scar and different people scar in different ways. “ For some, the scarring may be slight but for others it can produce problems where the tissue overgrows and you end up with a red lump which is permanent. “ In some cases this can be absolutely horrendous. I have to say it seems absolutely barking to me. I was amazed when I saw pictures of this piercing — it would be extremely painful and it’s only temporary.” “ This is a row of rings which could also bleed and become infected.

There is a risk of the rings pulling the skin and also getting caught on something. I can’t believe that people are going out with these things on display — they are open to any sort of infection. It’s verging on masochistic. It’s just bizarre,” he said.

Laura Hunt offers corset piercing at her Tattoo and Piercing Studio, called Dragstrip, in Southampton, Hants, and charges £ 5 ( Rs 365) per hoop. The 25 year- old from Southampton, who has had the piercing herself, insists it isn’t dangerous. She explains, “ Corset piercing is becoming more popular. Body modifications have recently become really popular as everyone wants to be different. It can be quite painful. It involves pinching the skin and pushing the needle through by hand.

A lot of people know about it and would like to have it done but for some it can be too painful. It’s not dangerous because it’s a surface piercing and doesn’t go deep enough.” It’s an open wound so it has to be cleaned to prevent infection, like any other piercing, she explained. “ We get a lot of different people asking to have it done — one was a 45 year- old mum who wanted it done for a tattoo convention. We’ve also had a couple of students doing art degrees and others who are in to fetishes and pain. Others have it done because they want to look nice for a particular occasion,” said Hunt.
