Korea's latest trend: Calf Reduction Sugery



Attractive calves are desirable to people of all cultures. Unfortunately, thick, short, and overly muscular calves, a condition known as "radish calves" or "radish legs," are more common in Asian women.

Ummmm them they don't these people choose to work out instead? You never have to relearn to walk when you work out. Lazy bums.

i think the "problem" is that the calf muscles themselves are "too big". so if they work out they won't necessarily get slimmer. or the kind of slimmer that these people are paying for.

this is no better than chinese foot binding, when you think about it. causing immense amounts of pain and crippling healthy women to try and achieve a bizarre and stupid standard of beauty?

yeah, way to progress, asia.

I honestly... don't understand how people can handle plastic surgery. I have a strong fear of sharp things... :(
splendidlure 29th-Oct-2009 06:26 am (UTC)

splendidlure 29th-Oct-2009 06:26 am (UTC)
I always that you get nice legs by exercising. =/
booksandsarcasm 29th-Oct-2009 03:49 pm (UTC)
For some people exercising can bulk up muscles further.
