Feeling Sad? Ladies in Korea Go Under the Knife for a Perma-Smile

In South Korea, the global epicenter of plastic surgery, a newly popular form of augmentation is the "liptail". Originally invented to help middle-aged folks reverse the downturned lips brought on by aging, this surgery is reportedly being adopted by the younger set to permanently create a cute, cheerful smile. While most opt for a more subtle lift, some girls go for the full-on duckface. Unlike other surgeries that merely change the body's form, this one permanently alters its expression – perhaps an effort to be more happy by looking more happy.
