We know there are many celebrities who undergo cosmetic surgery to look ravishing and make a mark in the entertainment industry, but we have not often heard about animals going under the knife.
According to some Korean news portals, residents of South Korea, which has the highest rate of plastic surgery per capita in the world, have become obsessed with the idea of cosmetic surgery for their pets in an attempt to make them, especially dogs, look more cute.
Apart from surgeries for eye enhancement and double eyelid issues, the pets also undergo procedures for raising ears and removing wrinkles.
"Plastic surgery for pets in the past were for medical reasons but the result also brought better looking dogs, so there is a growing customer base getting a plastic surgery for cosmetic reasons on their dogs," an unnamed veterinarian told the news portal.
