Smile, Darn Ya, Smile!

The "Glasgow Smile" [Heath Ledger/The Joker] has gone mainstream:
[A] new technique called “Smile Lipt” carves a permanent smile into an otherwise angry face. The procedure, whose name combines “lip” with “lift”—get it?—turns up the corners of the mouth...

The Seoul-based Aone Plastic Surgery has patented the procedure, according to the clinic’s blog. For $2,000, it now offers patients the chance to be thus transformed...

The procedure is, as KRT reports, increasingly popular among men and women in their 20s and 30s—especially flight attendants, consultants and others in industries aiming to offer service with a smile...

In essence, it can make patients smile… even when they’re not smiling. That could prove problematic during “funerals, breakups and fights with your significant other,” as RocketNews24 notes.

  1. I need that. If I am not smiling, I look as though I am angry, when I am not.

    1. If you have an INTJ deathstare, I don't think just smiling at the same time will help communicate happiness.

  2. Looks more like a smirk to me.

  3. Not sure I want to check google images for that but I've seen a documentary recently about such not-so-succesful procedures...
