2The woman who had her dead husband's ashes sewn into her breast implants

3The politician who raffled off breast implants to raise campaign funds
Even a recession has not diminished Venezuelans' appetite for cosmetic surgery with many people taking out loans for the surgery. Mr Rojas, of the opposition First Justice party, said that he was not too worried about the medical details of his offer. “The raffle is a financing mechanism, nothing else,” he told the newspaper. “It's the doctor who will do the operation, not me.” (Source | Via)
4The shooting victim who survived because her size D implant stopped the bullet
Carranza was just a few feet away. “She's just one lucky woman,” Dr. Ashkan Ghavami said. “I saw the CT scan. The bullet fragments were millimeters from her heart and her vital organs. Had she not had the implant, she might not be alive today”.
An LAPD firearms instructor told the Times it's possible the implant interrupted the velocity of the bullet. “I don't want to say a boob job is the equivalent of a bulletproof vest,” Scott Reitz said. “So don't go getting breast enhancements as a means to deflect a possible incoming bullet.” (Source | Via)
5The blond celebrity who became a TV sensation by smashing things with her silicone breasts
After demonstrating on live TV the damage that her knockers can do to Coke cans and melons, you'd have to be a brave man to rub her up the wrong way. And as if that wasn't enough, a shocked nation watched in awe as Busty Heart appeared on ‘America's Got Talent'. Even jury star David Hasselhoff, who's seen his fair share of big breasts, was impressed. She'll also have won some admirers in Japan as she displayed the amazing karate skills of her 95 JJs. It's a skill that Busty has been carefully training since the 80s, when she first realized TV viewers across the globe loved watch her busting melons.

One of the women - who gave her name as 'Tanja' - asked to go out to get some 'fresh air' after the £5,400 (€8,000) was completed. She never came back. Michael Koenig, the Cologne surgeon after the women, said: 'The women registered under fake names. After the operations, which lasted about an hour, they just ran away,' he reported. (Source)
7The woman who survived a car crash because her breasts implants acted as airbags
A police expert explained: "[The implants] worked just like airbags - protecting the victim's ribs and vital organs from damage." He did, however, add: "They are not as safe as the real thing because they exploded, which airbags are not supposed to do." (Source)

9The man who got himself a boob job… on his tattoo
Canadian Lane, editor of a body art and tattoo magazine, even sat up to watch most of the operation carried out in Edmonton, Alberta.
