In the latest No Spin Live, PSC plastic surgeons discuss the exponential rise of buttock augmentation, and also what exactly their colleague Dr. Dan Del Vecchio means when he refers to “eye seconds.” Host Dr. William P. Adams Jr., of Dallas asks, “There’s some new syntax that has come up with this buttock augmentation craze that’s called, ‘eye seconds.’ What in the world is that?”
Dr. Del Vecchio explains to his colleges the phrase as a more elegant form of how long one can check somebody out in public.
Eye seconds is simply defined as the number of seconds or milliseconds that you can look at an erogenous body part and not get caught. – Dan Del Vecchio, MD
With the recent rise in popularity of buttock augmentation – and with it, more importantly, a focus on achieving a great hip to waist ratio and thus beautiful contour – Del Vecchio believes the number of ‘eye seconds’ we are afforded has likewise increased.
“If you’re walking in a mall and you’re walking by a woman – or a man- and you stare at something on them, it’s really hard to do for more than a quarter of a second – you kind of look then you have to look away,” he explains. “If, on the other hand, the person is ahead of you, there’s no eyes in the back of their head so you can stare at that butt for a long time. My point is, the butt has really improved our eye seconds. Post office – let this person cut in line. This is what my patients tell me all the time. They say, ‘You know, since I had my buttock augmentation done, people let me cut in line.'”
Dr. Richard Zienowicz of Rhode Island replies through laughter, “I haven’t had the time to think about it but it makes perfect sense.” After all, it does make sense. Many times in public our eyes wander and take in what all there is to see. Standing in line impatiently, one may end up checking out who’s in front of you. Whether man or women, a nice behind and a well contoured body is something our eyes tend to focus in on!
“I think we all want to thank Dan for improving our line waiting experiences,” remarks Dr. Steven Camp of Fort Worth. “Truth be told, I think he makes a great point and it’s a very interesting concept. It’s certainly a lot of fun to talk about!”
