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.

A large calf may be considered an aesthetic problem by women who find it awkward to wear certain clothes like short skirts or swimsuits. Bulky calves can also make the legs look shorter, and short height is a common point of employment discrimination in the Orient.

Popular Asian media seems so obsessed with long, thin legs that computer-manipulated ads not uncommonly appear comically distorted.

im sorry, but this CRAZY. I dont even see why this is a form of surgery. This is as bad as cloning please.

This is so disgusting. D:
It's not any different than surgery on your face, I know, but ugh, on your legs? Just wear pants 24/7, geez. >___>"

jfc be glad you can walk with the TWO PERFECTLY FINE LEGS mother nature gave you. this is different from facial reconstruction surgery.. you want to be able to walk when you're 80 years old.

Exactly~

Jesus Christ, can't people be glad you're gifted with being able to walk? At least they work!

This is pretty much what I say to myself when I got jealous of ~skinny legs~
pretzel_knot 29th-Oct-2009 11:25 am (UTC)
my calves are kinda big too, but the above sounds too damn scary for me to ever go through that. DDD:

DNW skinny legs. This girl at my school sometimes wears skinny jeans and then I'm like "OMG no :0 I'm suprised your legs can still support your weight".
aiedailglow 29th-Oct-2009 01:39 pm (UTC)
Sometimes I go all jealous of those kind of girls but then I think I like more ~healthy~ legs.
dorakyura 29th-Oct-2009 01:09 pm (UTC)
I have really huge legs which I hate but omfg this made me cringe. My legs hurt just thinking about it.

no thanks D:
aiedailglow 29th-Oct-2009 01:37 pm (UTC)
I've always wanted slimmer calves too, but when I think about these stuff, I thik I'd rather thank God for my ~fat~ calves because that's what I've been strolling around for life - I don't wanna lose them D:

Just live in a box, Korea.
You'll end up chopping off all your limbs eventually.

i was planning to do liposuction when i get older but after reading this--- I WONT. my thighs aren't huge, just ugly shaped and my calves are pretty muscular. i'll just work out every single day to fix them.

I wish Korean women learnt some self-respect and Korea as a whole started appreciating more what's inside your head instead of outer appearance.

God, THIS.
I also wish they'd learn to embrace their imperfections. It makes us special! :|
