Wacky -- and Unnecessary -- Cosmetic Surgery

We all have parts of our bodies that make us feel insecure or like we might want to take drastic measures to "fix." There are some people who do go the distance when it comes to fixing minor maladies like too-chunky ankles, ears that stick out a bit and even genitals that don't seem to look "just right." There are doctors who are willing to perform liposuction on less traditional areas, like knees and ankles, to relieve the dreaded "cankles." And many plastic surgeons perform medically unnecessary labiaplasties and vaginoplasties, both of which improve the appearance of the genitals. But it's important to understand that these seemingly small procedures carry the same risks as more invasive and typical cosmetic surgeries like breast augmentation and tummy tucks. Those include adverse reactions to anesthesia, infection and pain.
