HOLLYWOOD & VAIN

The West leads the country in breast implants. The number of Botox injections in the region accounts for 40 percent of the nation's face-freezing proceedures.

Albany GA
2003 - A 23-year-old drag queen dies after an underground procedure common among transgendered men: an injection of silicone administered at a "pumping party."

THE EAST
HAIR SUPPLY

The East Coast has a thing about hair. More transplants are done here than in any other region (13,000 last year). It is also the most popular area for male breast reduction, lowerbody lifts, chemical peel, and collagen injections.

Lebanon NH
A plastic surgeon at Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center is working toward what he promises will revolutionize plastic surgery: human wings.
