No Spin Live… Weird Asian Beauty Products

No Spin Live… Weird Asian Beauty Products

Innovation drives the world, and no one seems to innovate more in quick-fix beauty products than East Asian countries. Plastic devices “designed” to reshape your nose, provide your breasts a lift, and even slim your face are made available to would-be plastic surgery patients who’d rather try to achieve their wishes with off-the-shelf items. Do they really work? Can you use a plastic claw to pull up your breast over time? If one can reshape their nose with a plastic device, why is rhinoplasty even a thing?


Board certified surgeons of the PSC breakdown these “devices,” deriding their potential at producing long-term changes, but noting that – like lottery tickets – sometimes money spent to dream of something you’d like may not be the worst thing in the world.
