Plastic Surgeon Criticized For Picking Big Noses

Plastic Surgeon Criticized For Picking Big Noses
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons says that Dr. Michael Salzhauer’s music video is inappropriate.

The Jewish plastic surgeon known as Dr. Schnoz has decided to cancel a contest after the premise was considered inappropriate by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).

Michael Salzhauer, M.D., helped create a music video entitled “Jewcan Sam: A Nose Job Love Song.” The song is about a Jewish teen who fails to get the girl because of the size of his nose. The Groggers, a Jewish pop-punk band, wrote the song.

The video compares the Jewish nose to Toucan Sam’s beak.

Salzhauer requested that viewers make similar videos, and the best video would receive a paid for trip to Miami, the home of Salzhauer’s practice. But the sought-after surgeon has chosen to halt the publicity stunt.

Salzhauer also offered free nose jobs to everyone in the band. Lead singer Doug Staiman, who plays the main character in the video, accepted the offer.

Staiman, along with Salzhauer, has been the subject of criticism. But the songwriter doesn’t seem to mind. He answered critics: “We’re all Orthodox Jews and very proud Jews. Isn‘t there a KKK rally you’ve got to break up somewhere?”

Malcolm Rush, M.D., president of the ASPS, said: “This is just disturbing that a doctor would play into the frailties of the human condition.”

    Shows just how into the $$$$$$$$$$$$ current medicine is and it’s another reason why we need to go to universal health care.


    • Brad

      No Rob this just shows the PC police are out in full effect

  • Robert Smith

    For those who don’t get it I’ll type slowly…

    IOW, I want my doctor to care about me and not the money.


    • Sirian

      Really? Well, if you get your “universal health care” your doctor will care for you but just as far as he is allowed to care for you. Oh yes, if you’re over sixty, don’t count on getting your nose taken care of as you think it probably should be. Sorry, you’re no longer as “productive” for the state as designated by the new all wonderful medical regulations prescribed by ObummerCare (universal health care) therefore, you no longer warrant being taken care of. Bye Bye, see ya later, feel any better? Great, I’m sure you do. . .

        From Sirian: “Well, if you get your “universal health care” your doctor will care for you but just as far as he is allowed to care for you.”

        Really? And it isn’t that way now? All those fat cat executives getting their “bonus” income for reducing care and making more money for the company…

        I take it you’ve never had treatment refused or questioned because it might be expensive. I have with a major health care company.

        I want the incentive to be that the doctor wants to cure me, NOT make money for some fat cat so he can smoke a bigger cigar with Rush Limbaugh.

        Here in Canada [I'm an American/Canadian citizen] we have universal health care. It’s a great system. Everyone is taken care of. The BIG difference: unlike the U.S. it’s not for profit medicine. That’s is the reason the cost so high in the U.S.. America has the most expensive health care costs on the planet. It’s also the only developed nation without universal health care. The total health expedniture per capita in the U.S. is $8,000. The other countries with universalhealth care is on average $3,500. Capitalism is good except when it comes to medicine.

      • Sirian

        I’ve been dealing with the V.A. for a very long time. And yes, I have been denied treatment for what they deem is not necessary. Example, when I had a heart attack the V.A. would not cover the hospital costs or even the doctor due to the fact that my heart is not listed as one of my disabilities. In other words, that is the same as you not being allowed treatment for whatever the problem may happen to be by your major health care company. The costs applies to both. Oh that reasoning can be easily side stepped, as it usually is, but they remain the same whether it is acceptable or not. So, it isn’t always entirely focused on profit. What we presently are – and have been confronted with before – leads us down a very dismal road that I honestly don’t believe you understand, fully. If you do, then without question you prefer a socialist state of government – government control – which will eliminate the responsibility to either yourself or anyone else, family included. In simple terms, governmental limitations as to what and how much personal freedom, personal liberty will be allowed. Is that what you are so hungry for? I’ve tacked on a video of a speech given by Reagan – yes, I know, so disgusting – but, if you have the wherewithal to simply listen to it it may very well give you a bit more mental meal to chew on, even more so, think on. Oh yes, one final question, how will your “universal health care” be paid for? I’m sure you know, don’t you? Really?

        Another article that may give you a better historical perspective in relation to “universal health care”.

    Much ado about very little…

    Wrong again from the traitor who can’t make up their mind to be a real American or a Commie Canadian. The real issue here has little to do with capitalism but more to do with Big Government restrictions not allowing the free market to work properly by enabling insurance companies to sell their products over state lines.

    • JON

      Since you don’t know me, you know nothing about me. Calling me a traitor and a commie shows how ignorrant, misinformed, and uneducated you are about what is really going on in the world. Come back and post something after you have informed yourself about facts instead of giving us a useless rant. You will gain a lot more respect. Government restrictions have done nothing to keep the insurance companies from making money for their share holders. As you know, America has the highest cost for healthcare in the world. Profits drive that, as well as greed.

    • JON

      Also, here in Canada, it was Government restrictions and regulations that kept our banking system the most stable in the world. There were no bailouts. The U.S. is becoming less free with each passing day. Canada is more free then America!

  • J.d. ‘Duke’ Schechter

    And just why is the good doctor’s religion important enough to lead the headline? Your bias is obscene.

    • Bob Livingston

      Dear J.d. ‘Duke’ Schechter,

      You write: “And just why is the good doctor’s religion important enough to lead the headline?” It does not “lead the headline.” It is, however in the lead paragraph. To understand its relevance, read the second paragraph.

      You write: “Your bias is obscene.” And exists only in your mind.

      Best wishes,

    Why do Jews like big noses?
    Air is free

  • Robert M Quittner

    There is a little sociologic thing happening re. the plastic surgeon — who happens to be Jewish. Tight knit groups tend to have a number of their own mores — “social rules,” one might say. For instance, black folks may use rough cultural language in kidding or otherwise conversing with each other about “blackness” or any number of other attributes. It is about “group identification and belonging.” It is not designed to be broadcast or shared with humans outside this small circle. But as a white dude, I am certainly not privileged to use the same language or tone. Some Jewish people (as well as Masons, Catholics, hispanics etc., etc.) may also choose to use a certain amount of ethnic humor. This is simply representative of a very diverse America — nothing to be upset over. The good doctor was simply playing with the sensibilites of other Jewish people. Thass all…

    @ rs. nose jobs have nothing to do with universal healthcare. insurance doesnt even cover them. Do you really think a universal healtcare system would pay for a nose job. you just want someone else to pay for you.
