With the humanitarian crisis caused by Hurricane Ike, soldiers still stuck in Iraq, and an ever deepening recession, it only makes sense that doctors are worrying about… back fat. Our friends at Jezebel turned us on to the news that a doctor has revealed a surgical “back lift” that slims down the bra line, and 20 patients (female, of course) have undergone the procedure to remove their “redundant skin”.
Not only do I wonder who has enough money that slicing off back skin (and it's not a small incision) seems like a reasonable expense, I can't help but question what Dr. Joseph Hunstad—the surgeon who pioneered the surgery—was thinking. Does he hate women?
Ladies, you're gorgeous just the way you are. And, while I believe your mental energy is better spent on contemplating the upcoming election or alpha hydroxy acids, if this is a pressing issue in your life, skip the scalpel and try one of the SheFinds approved solutions instead: Yummie Tummie or the Spanx Bra-llelujah!. They work wonders with zero recovery time or nasty scars.
