BUSINESS MEN IN VIETNAM ARE GETTING THEIR EAR LOBES PLUMPED TO HAVE LUCKY BUDDHA EARS
Plastic surgery options continue to amaze and dismay me. I can’t say that I’m a big fan. But to be fair when I notice it, it tends to be on people who have gone too far. You know, any celebrity who has aged a little (too much) in Hollywood? That being said, if I age into a turkey neck you can bet your un-augmented butt that I’ll be on my way to nip tuck that away. But this latest fad in Vietnam isn’t on my menu in any way. It seems that there is a new fad where people are getting their ear lobes plumped up so they can have lucky Buddha ears.
LUCKY BUDDHA EAR LOBE PROCEDURE IS EVEN AVAILABLE IN THE UNITED STATES
And yes, like all cosmetic medical procedures, people are paying (maybe thru the nose?) to have this ear lobe filler procedure done. And, don’t be surprised, plastic surgeons have already been offering these lucky Buddha ears for some time already. In Vietnam, most of the people going for this are men over the age of 30 whose religious beliefs connect directly with their sense of business success. Just imagine if this became a fad on Wall Street, too! Downtown Manhattan would be filled with folks with no cartilage in their noses and giant, lucky Buddha ear lobes…
LUCKY BUDDHA EARS ARE SUPPOSED TO IMPROVE PEOPLE’S BUSINESS SUCCESS
Oh, I should give a caveat on this one: I already have plumb ear lobes. So beyond my hesitance to see any doctor I don’t have to, I already have natural lucky Buddha ears. But I must say, so far it doesn’t seem like much of a luck charm so far. But maybe mine are in the wrong shape, as some providers promise to adjust the size and shape of clients’ plumped lucky Buddha ear lobes on demand. And, to be fair, in Vietnam women are also starting to ask for these, too! But now I’m shuddering about accidental earring punctures and the sound that would make.
