They Say People Look Like Their Dogs, But Plastic Surgery And Pets?
Plastic surgery’s focus has been on enhancing the aesthetic appearance of a person’s body or restoring the structure of the human body…until now. Plastic surgery for pets may sound like a skit from Saturday Night Live, but it’s no joke according to The Telegraph, a UK periodical. The British adore their pets, and in 2010 they reportedly spent $2.5 million on plastic surgery to benefit their furry friends. This was actually confirmed by a pet insurance carrier. The most common procedures were nose jobs (often to correct breathing difficulties in flat nosed dogs), eyelid lifts (for dogs with lots of facial excess skin), and silicone testicular implants for neutered males. While “official” cosmetic procedures for pets haven’t caught on in Texas, there could be a second British invasion. If you’re wondering about liposuction for Fido, it’s available. If you have enough money, you can probably have anything done for your pet. While Houston renowned plastic surgeon, Michael Eisemann, M.D., hasn’t gone to the dogs, he’s always enthusiastic to meet their loving owners!
