Plastic surgery rates in Asia have skyrocketed over the years. Among these surgeries, the double eyelid surgery is easily the most requested and common procedure. Despite it’s growing popularity, some woman are still unwilling to go under the knife and have created alternative methods to achieve their goals.
Some have resorted to make up, others have opted for photoshop, and now we have a bizarre little device called double eyelid training glasses. The glasses are a non-surgical option to create the illusion of a double eyelid. The Eyelid Trainer is worn like any other pair of glasses. Apparently, 5 minutes a day with this contraption will give you the double eyelids you desire.
“There are many products that create a double-eyelid, but there are also many people who have a hard time using glues and tapes to create the look,” says Techo Trade rep, Ikuo Otani. “We created this product with those people in mind, allowing anyone to easily train their eyelids to become creased in just a few minutes a day.”
Although the Eyelid Trainer makes it’s users look absolutely ridiculous, many people seem determined to achieve this look. The Eyelid Trainer sold 7,000 units sold in the first month of sales.
Of course, we’re not quite sure if this product actually works. In fact, the rise in cosmetic surgery in Asia indicate that more and more people are willing to cough up the money for permanent results instead of products like the Eyelid Trainer.
Currently, South Korea has the world’s highest per capita rate of cosmetic plastic surgery. Just how much surgery are we looking at? Well there’s a woman who was so obsessed with Miranda Kerr‘s looks that she decided to go under the knife in an effort to look like the Australian Victoria’s Secret model. The phenomenon of cosmetic surgery has grown so much in Korea that a television show called “Let’s Beauty” was created. The show allows audiences to follow along with someone’s entire cosmetic transformation.
