1. Eye implants that change your iris color.
A company called BrightOcular has developed artificial iris implants made of a thin, flexible, silicone that can be folded and inserted into the eye to cover iris-related abnormalities. They can also change eye color for cosmetic purposes. Is there a wait list for zebra print?
2. Beard transplants for extra manliness.
UK Doctor Bessam Farjo pioneered the first facial hair transplant in 1996, and the procedure has become more and more popular. It works the same way as normal head hair transplants: follicles are harvested from other parts of the body and jabbed into the face. Whatever happened to just drawing a beard in Sharpie?
5. “Pokertox” — botox specifically targeted for a perfect poker face.
Professional poker players no longer have to worry about “tells.” Dr. Jack Berdy of Manhattan has pioneered a specialized botox procedure to help card players remain stoic and stony-faced during games.
8. Fake dimples.
Those wishing they were born with super adorable tiny craters in their faces can now sleep easier at night. Artificial dimples can be created via a tiny incision on the inside of the cheek where a suture is then placed, creating the illusion of a dimple when the person smiles.
10. East Asian double eyelid surgery.
Blepharoplasty is a procedure where the skin around the eye is reshaped to create an upper eyelid with a crease from an eyelid that is naturally without a crease. It’s the most common procedure in Taiwan and South Korea, where western celebrity culture has become deeply ingrained. In fact, South Korea currently has more surgeries per capita than anywhere in the world.
11. Prosthetic testicles… for your pet. Not you. Your pet. YOUR PET.
Conscientious pet owners who feel guilty about, y’know, doing the responsible thing for their pets can get fake testicles for them. Neuticals claims that over half a million pet owners have used them (but are they counting each testicle, or each set?)
12. Growing noses on foreheads, because why not?
During a process called prelamination, tissue is constructed in multiple layers: the skin on the outside, the cartilage, and the soft lining inside. Then the finished reconstructed tissue is transplanted to the correct area.
13. Fake ears constructed out of other body parts.
Cartilage can be taken from a person’s ribs, crafted into an ear shape, covered in skin, and pinned to the side of the face. It’s a great procedure for people who have lost ears, were born without them, or simply feel that two isn’t enough.
