The latest cosmetic surgery craze to appear is having liposuction on the shoulders to get that ‘Keira look.’
Surgeons in New York have reported a number of women coming to them for liposuction to give them more slender shoulders such as those sported by Keira Knightley. These women are requesting that as much fat as possible be taken away from the shoulder area to give them a more toned and sinewy look.
The procedure is done under local anaesthetic and costs will be around the $4,000 – $10,000 mark. Small cuts that are a maximum of half a centimetre long are made in natural creases and shadows around the shoulders with fat then suctioned out using curved suction wands. Laser treatments are sometimes also used before the incisions are made to help melt the fat cells and make them easier to suck out.
Most women who decide to go ahead with the shoulder liposuction will need to take a couple of days off work – many choose to have the surgery on a Thursday or a Friday and will return to work on the Monday. After a fortnight, most of the bruising and swelling from the operation should be gone.
So far, the craze seems to be centred in America only however many believe it is only a matter of time before fashion conscious women in other countries pick up on this bizarre cosmetic surgery trend.
