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.

For the Calf reduction by muscle resection you need minimun 2 weeks or recovery and may need to relearn how to walk.

OW, makes my legs hurt just reading about it. No thanks.

xD I dunno... I hate my mine. I hate that their big and the after photos look really nice and slender. I don't think I'd do the removal thing though O___O Here's to hoping it's mostly fat. x'DDD

Seriously...this is insane! To some people they'd love to have muscly calves rather than totally skinny ones. I bet in years to come the trends will all have changed again and skinny legs will be out. It's the way of the world.

I still can't believe that for thinner looking legs people would risk not being able to walk properly!!

what the fuck?

i have naturally slender (bordering on skinny) calves. and it drives me crazy. i've always preferred curvier legs on females.

lol your user name is awesome

This article... what? I think I'd rather walk normally with my large Asian calves than relearn to walk with stick calves. I like my calf muscles, and I'd like to keep them the way they are.

Passsssss x 1000000.

I don't even wanna imagine what they're gonna come up with next.

may need to relearn how to walk

Ugh...no pain no gain right?

I don't get it. I don't know, I can sort of understand the double eyelid surgery, because it's on the face and people usually look there first. But are people honestly going to be like, "Hold up! Lemme see your calves!"

That first picture is freaky.

Man, I don't like my calves, but there's no way I would go through such insane procedure with such high risk (I mean, having trouble walking? WTF are your "pretty" legs going to do for you if you can't walk?).

My calves hurt just from reading about this. :|
