Liposuction ? No!

Twitter is good fun but sometimes I do wonder what drives people on there. I suppose it's all too obviously the profit motive but sometimes it can have a dark side. Yesterday I was feeling a bit stiff and my hips hurt. It happens sometimes. It's nothing I worry about but in a tweet I made a flip remark about it. Later I was startled to be tweeted by a young man who suggested that I should look into a way of reducing the fat on my hips. Now I am plump but I am not fat and I put no weight on during my cruise. I clicked on the link to find it was an advert for liposuction! Having surplus fat surgically removed would be the last thing I would even contemplate if I was overweight. Exercise maybe. Surgery. Never! But this morning I asked the young man if he had any qualifications for recommending liposuction. It struck me as being a very dodgy idea for anyone , leave alone an old woman well past her sell by date! So now I am receiving more ads for cosmetic surgery! I have even got a new liposuction follower! I must have inadvertently pressed the wrong button! I know I can block the original young man but the speed with which the idea is generated that some one might be interested is worrying.

  1. I'm a great believer in keeping my account private. It eliminates spam and allows me to vet possible followers, such as your potential liposuction sales person.

  2. Liposuction can remove between 50 to 90% of the fat in a treated area.

    1. That's fine if your fat. I'm not! So I do object to being told about liposuction as a cure for aching hips!
