--- OVER 100 BABIES BORN IN ARMENIA AS RESULT OF INSEMINATION OUTSIDE MOTHER'S BODY
YEREVAn, MARCH 26, 2007 NOYAN TAPAN. Yerevan's Scientific Research Center on Health Care of Mother and Child is the only one in Armenia where insemination outside the mother's body is done. Karen Jinanian, Head of the Laboratory Diagnostic Unit of the center, told NT correspondent about it. According to him, this field of medical science has been established in Armenia and it is not inferior to those in other countries: 100-200 inseminations outside the mother's body is done in the country annually, with efficency making up 25-40% as throughout the world. K. Jinanian said that two programs on insemination outside the mother's body are currently being implemented at the center. The first program, which has been implemented since 2002, aims to eliminate problems related to fertility of women. By the way, the first 3 babies were born under this program in February 2003. The second program implemented since 2006 aims to overcome men's problems related to fertility. The first baby with the use of this method was born in Armenia recently - on February 8. On the whole, until now over 100 babies have been born in Armenia as a result of insemination outside the mother's body. In the words of K. Jinanian, these children do not differ in anything from other children born in the natural way. He explained that insemination outside the mother's body ensures genetic heredity. "This allows Armenian men to be more confident and bold as no donor sperm is used in this case," the laboratory head said. An insemination outside the mother's body done at the center costs 700-1,000 dollars, whereas, for example, it costs 25 thousand dollars in the US. K. Jinanian pointed out that in addition to Armenian citizens, those from other countries: the US, Russia, Georgia have applied to the center. According to the RA Ministry of Health, no official statistics on sterility of women of reprodictive age exist in Armenia. According to the same source, 3.4% of women examined in 1998 had primary sterility, and about 28.5% - secondary sterility.

ArmInfo. Angelina Jolie's face is the most popular desire of Armenian girls. Plastic surgeon Gnel Ananyan said in a press conference on Tuesday most of his patients want to have the face of that Hollywood actress.
Armen Hovhannissyan is Head of the Association of Plastic Surgeons of Armenia.
Up to 100 plastic operations to increase bust size (breast augmentation) are made in Yerevan every year, Hovhannissyan said. The price is not high as compared to other countries - 300,000 drams (about $1,000 USD) for surgery plus up to 1000 EUR for silicon implants.
Such price makes breast plastic surgery attractive for foreigners.
Hovhannissyan said that in summer and winter holidays many foreigners arrive in Armenia to undergo plastic surgery. As for men, they are not indifferent to plastic surgery either. The most popular surgery among Armenian men is nose plastics and liposuction.
Nose jobs in Armenia costs US$1000-$1500, ear plastic surgery - $500-$700. The most expensive is face-lift surgery - $3500-$4000.
