As Argentina’s peso currency sinks against the dollar and euro, fewer people have been frequenting the many dance halls and clubs. So some club owners have devised some creative ways of attracting more customers.

Breast raffles have been drawing thousands of people, mostly young women, and the young women draw the young men. Argentina has one of the highest plastic surgery rates in the world and as cosmetic surgery tourism continues to grow, many are choosing Argentina for their procedures.

Last Saturday night a breast raffle was held at a dance hall in a western province called La Rioja. The winner turned out to be a 22-year-old man. He decided to give the prize to his girlfriend, and she turned around and negotiated a deal with the dance hall for cash instead. Being a student, she said, she had more need of money than a breast enlargement.

The winning ticket number was 2,757 which shows how many people were interested in the prize. The winner stated that most people were there for that prize. Next time around, there will be two prizes — a nose job for the runner-up.

Is it ethical?

Some in Argentina are concerned about this method of offering cosmetic surgery and the surgeon who had offered to perform this dance hall’s breast augmentation has been criticized. Advertising medical treatments outside of licensed facilities is apparently not strictly legal in Argentina and many feel that a raffle prize is not a good way to put a doctor and patient together.

Breast augmentation is major surgery and does need good candidacy and good planning. There are many choices to be made before you have it done:

  • Saline or silicone gel implants?
  • Round or teardrop?
  • Smooth or textured?
  • Under the muscle or over it?
  • What size?
  • Incision in the armpit, areola or breast crease?
