When I was a teenager, I wanted pointy ears. They would have been a nice complement to my ear gauges and collection of body piercings. I also wanted a split tongue, but the prevailing technique, which involved a tongue piercing, dental floss, and a high pain tolerance, kind of skeeved me out.

Decades later, I’m far less elfin than I would have been if I’d had the courage/bank account to go through with these procedures, but maybe more employable? Anyway, the point is: If you’ve ever made a bizarre request to a plastic surgeon, I get you. My other point is damn, people are weird. Here are some of the most out-there requests plastic surgeons have fielded from patients who may or may not be grounded in reality.
