Plastic surgery legend Joan Rivers was in town

Joan Rivers, the comedienne who went from mocking other people's plastic surgery to mocking her own plastic surgery, was in Palm Beach this week to promote her book, "Men are Stupid... And They Like Big Boobs."

According to the write-up by Robert Janjigian at the Palm Beach Daily News, the event was held at The Brazilian Court's Cafe Boulud with a packed house.

The appearance was part of her book tour, which is billed as a guide to beauty and plastic surgery. Contrary to public opinion about her, she actually had some sound advice:

  • "God bless the Internet." You can do a little background check on the guy (or woman).
  • Ask your hairdresser. "They see everything."
  • Choose a doctor who you feel comfortable talking to. who answers your questions thoroughly.
  • Go to a specialist. "If you're getting your eyes done, go to an eye guy. If getting your breasts done, go to the breast specialist. It may be boring for them, but so what?"
  • If you can afford it, get a cardiologist to sit in during the surgery. "Just in case."
  • With Botox and other injectables: "Better they put in too little than too much. I don't want to look like Liza Minelli."
  • "Don't be cheap about it. This is you. You can't leave this in the car."
  • "Put the money where they can see it."
  • When going in for collagen or other injections, make the doctor numb your face or get a presciption for the stuff that numbs you before you go in. "You want to feel nothing."
  • "Ask, ask, ask before you go for it."
