article imageWomen want liposuction on their shoulders to have 'Keira look'

In addition to the availability of numerous plastic surgeries for any part of the body, women now want to have liposuction on their shoulders to have a “Keira Knightley" look.
Plastic surgeons in New York have reported that many women are seeking a perfect look for their shoulders and are asking for liposuction to make their shoulders look slender like actress Keira Knightley and singer Madonna.
The surgeons say women want the fat in their shoulders to be removed to make a more toned and sinewy appearance. Recently, they are getting more requests from the United Kingdom according to Dr. Douglas Steinbrech.
The procedure for shoulder liposuction costs between £2,000 ($3,838) and £5,000 ($9,596). A woman's shoulders will be injected with a local anesthetic before they do this procedure.
Incisions about five millimeters (0.20) are made in the natural creases and shadows of the shoulders and the fat is vacuumed out with curved suction wands. Other procedures might use lasers to break up and melt the fat cells first before being vacuumed out.
Dr. Steinbrech said this procedure is for women in great ship and very trim. He told the Daily Mail:
They maybe go to the gym three or five days a week but there are a few areas that the gym can't reach, such as their shoulders, knees and ankles. It is not a procedure I perform on obese women.'
He said the surgery is pain-free and patients can return to work within a few days. He claims 80 per cent of the swelling goes down within two weeks and the bruising disappears within 10 days.
Barbara Jemec, a consultant plastic surgeon at the Chelsea and Westminister Hospital, hopes this procedure doesn’t come to the UK. She told the Daily Mail:
'It sounds a bit extreme. There are other places where fat is much more visible on women's bodies and shoulders can scar easily…The likes of Keira Knightley and Madonna have skinny shoulders because they are skinny all over. I think in this country we are moving away from women having to be stick-thin. A woman who looks normal and healthy is much better.'
I think it's sad women want to look like Keira, given the fact she refuses to do any plastic surgery on herself. She also doesn't allow photo manipulation of her pictures.
