Move over, humans, it seems animals need makeovers too. It’s all the rage in South Korea right now as pet owners are actually paying for cosmetic surgery for their furry companions!
Some of the popular procedures include tail shortening and ear trimming for dogs, to make them ‘cute’ with pointy ears. Fat reduction is another popular surgery, along with stretch marks removal, wrinkle smoothing, double eyelid removal and even botox injections. These procedures start from $60 and ostensibly run into the thousands.
It’s not entirely surprising, given that South Korea is the plastic surgery capital of the world. This is the place wheretourists become unrecognisable to the extent that they need special doctor certificates to return to their native lands after having work done on their faces.
