The beauty bubble We are redoing ourselves like never before. Taking a botox injection at lunch is no longer strange and new clinics are constantly being opened to meet demand. But the industry is described as an almost lawless country with a lack of regulation. Who is responsible if something goes wrong? And are you really happy with cosmetic surgery? The program series Skönhetsbubblan takes a collective approach to the Sweden of beauty interventions. Recently, we have been flooded with plastic surgery via TV series, gossip magazines and blogs. In three sections, we follow people who in different ways live or work with beauty procedures. And they have increased avalanche-like in Sweden. Is it the beauty pressure on the young that has increased or are only the opportunities more and different today? Are some operations considered more shameful than others, while some have received a new political charge? Some believe, for example, that it is a matter of equality to be able to operate on their body after pregnancies. In the first part, we follow the blogger Jane Timglas, 24 years old, who has done 48 beauty procedures, including two 2 breast surgeries. She fills her lips and cheekbones, whitens her teeth, tattoos lipliner, lengthens eyelashes and does Botox every six to 6 weeks. Now Jane is also planning an intimate operation, she wants to shorten her labia. The non-surgical procedures such as botox, fillers and various types of lasers are steadily increasing and many are the young women who use the new techniques. But do you get happy by doing beauty procedures? What do you gain from doing beauty procedures? Happiness? Money? And is it the porn ideal that drives the development? The second part is about the most common customer of the private plastic surgeons. It is not a young girl who wants to have breast surgery, but a mother who wants to restore her body after past pregnancies. Can the restoration of a mother’s body be seen as an equality issue – for the family? For the society? What are the values ​​behind the fact that we pay for a child’s protruding ears and not for a mother’s stretched abdomen? Why does the county council reduce a man’s enlarged breasts but not enlarge a woman’s reduced breasts? We meet Caroline Olofsson, 34 years old, who after her 2 pregnancies decided to do what is called in the USA ”Mommy Makeover”.Namely breast augmentation and tummy tuck. For Caroline and her husband, it is a matter of course to share the costs. The beauty bubble also looks at the lack of regulation in the beauty industry and whose responsibility it really is if something goes wrong. In the third and final part, we follow a plastic surgeon. What role will plastic surgery play in the future? Beauty surgery is an industry that is constantly growing and seems to be here to stay. We also know that appearance is of great importance to us when we get a partner, and maybe even when we get a job. What role will Plastic Surgery play in the future. Who is the winner in the beauty society and who is the loser? And do plastic surgeons have lower morale than other surgeons? – Today you can be born ugly and poor but die happy and beautiful and rich, says plastic surgeon Charles Randqvist, who we follow in the Beauty Bubble’s third and final part. How does he view his work as a plastic surgeon? How does he motivate himself to use his medical knowledge to cut in perfectly healthy people in order to make them look better?

Excerpt from Anna Bäsén’s book “Everything you need to know about beauty procedures – from botox, fillers and lasers to surgery”. © 2011 Anna Bäsén and Norstedts, Stockholm. “Every plastic surgeon is his own artist” – I could do this in my sleep, states plastic surgeon Charles Randquist, while he gently rotates a jelly raspberry implant in the pocket he made under Emma’s mammary gland and pectoral muscle. Emma, ​​22, will enlarge her breasts and get a straighter nose. She is numb and does not see that Baggensfjärden glitters outside the large windows in the operating room and does not hear that the training matches on the nearby tennis courts are in full swing. It’s Thursday and “breast day” at the private Victoria Clinic in the well-to-do Saltsjöbaden outside Stockholm. Today, Charles Randquist will perform eight breast augmentation surgeries, first Emma’s combined rhinoplasty and breast augmentation and after that another seven women will receive breast implants. After only 24 minutes, both breast implants are in place and the four centimeter long incisions in the breast folds are neatly sewn together. Now Emma has big plump breasts that strive towards the roof of the operating room. – She has chosen a slightly larger implant than I recommended, 315 ml. But they are not too big, they fit her body, he states. Charles is experienced, normally he has time for ten breast augmentations during a normal breast day. You want to have the patient on the operating table for as short a time as possible, there is always a greater risk of being anesthetized for a longer period of time. And a breast augmentation is not really a difficult surgical procedure. It is not the operation itself that takes time, but the preparations for it, he says. Charles Randquist started the Victoria Clinic in 2000 and performs between 600 and 700 operations per year. Breast augmentation is, just like in other private plastic surgery clinics, the most common procedure. He keeps “a low profile” and does not advertise his clinic. It is “word of mouth” that applies and patients from all over the world find their way to Saltsjöbaden. If you read in patient forums online, you quickly discover that you go to Dr. Randquist to get breasts that look natural and are not huge. – It has become my brand, you could say. Sure, there are a lot of young women who want huge round balls, but they usually do not come here. My patients are generally women who have very small breasts, sometimes no breasts at all, and who want breasts that do not look like plastic surgery. Big breasts have become trendy. But the larger the implant, the greater the risks, Charles Randquist argues. Larger implants increase the risk of complications such as wrinkles, sagging skin, loss of sensation, bleeding, ugly scars and infections. He points out that a pair of huge breasts can also give signals that are not only positive. – It can have consequences for one’s social status. It may be sexy and cool to have big breasts when you are between 20 and 30 years old and out in the nightlife. But you should hopefully have the implants for a long time. A pair of large breasts affects how you are perceived, it may not only be positive in working life or when you get you and your family. Charles admits that on a few occasions he has operated on really large implants on women who work as “body artists”, as he puts it a little cautiously. – But it is mature women who have their bodies as work tools. They know what they are getting into and are well aware of the risks. If an 18-year-old girl wants such breasts, I say no. Each breast augmentation is preceded by accurate measurements.

Together with Dr Charles Randquist from the Victoria Clinic, we discuss common questions related to choosing breast implants. Which options are best suited for different body types? What should you keep in mind when choosing a size – and what is the difference between round and teardrop-shaped implants?
