In today’s scary science news, a company called Bio-Medical Research is now hawking a line of products on Nordstrom that promises to “lift” your target areas (Tummy Lift, Bottom Lift, Arm Lift and so on). And if you’re not already scared off by the phrase “medical research,” consider that these $200 devices use Electronic Muscle Stimulation to get the job done. But don’t worry, they’re “FDA cleared” (is that a class below “FDA approved”?)… according to whoever writes the copy for Nordstrom.com.
I’ll be the first to try a new diet or cleanse to lose a few pounds in a flash, but these electronic strap-on’s seem a bit much to even a veteran fad dieter and weight-loser like me. It’s sort of like getting your bangs cut by a beauty school student, or flying in a plane piloted by someone logging hours for flight school. It’s a great deal!… but I’ll take plastic surgery with a board-certified surgeon instead, thanks.
