Plastic surgeons have revealed the strangest requests they have received from patients – ranging from having wings attached to their backs to creating vampire ears and devil horns.
Tennessee surgeon Dr David Reath said one science-fiction fan wanted her belly button removed “so she could look like a clone”.
Meanwhile Dr Anthony Youn, author of The Age Fix, said he’d had ”dozens of patients call and request a consultation for wings“.
“I say no to all of these requests,” he added.
Speaking to the website Thrillist, surgeons revealed they turned down some unusual requests for being too unsafe, but a range of strange-sounding procedures can be carried out safely and effectively.
