Brazil’s contribution to the Arab Spring

“Last week, Brazilian television featured a local – if bizarre – angle on the Libya story. The ousted Libyan dictator, Colonel Muammer Gaddafi, it seems is one of the more notorious past foreign customers of an industry Brazil is famous for – plastic surgery.

“He [Gaddafi] said he was in power for some time and did not want to give the idea to younger people that he was an old man,” said one of the colonel’s Brazilian plastic surgeons, Liacyr Ribeiro, on television. He and his colleague described how they flew to Libya 16 years ago to give the dictator hair implants and a facelift.”
