Miami plastic surgeon under ethics investigation holds contest for free nose job


Dr. Michael Salzhauer of Bal Harbour Plastic Surgery thought it would be funny to commission The Groggers, a self professed "Jewish pop-punk band with a comic twist," a song and video encouraging plastic surgery for a character whose nose is described as a "beak like Jewcan Sam." Incidentally, the band's lead singer L .E. Doug Staiman took the song's advice and had his own nose fixed by Dr. Salzhauer, who told ABC News that "the song is meant to be funny, not offensive." The American Society of Plastic Surgeons is not amused and "has initiated an investigation under its Code of Ethics which clearly requires ASPS members to uphold the dignity and honor of the medical profession." Salzhauer couldn't care less. He is now running a contest encouraging entrants to make their own videos for the song. Whoever gets the most views on YouTube will win a free nose job. Incidentally, Salzhauer is Jewish.
