Japan's New Fad: Bagel Head
Hmmm. Not sure about this. When I first heard of this, I thought I was being told some sort of sick joke. Then, i googled it. Bizarre. WTF?
I don't get it. What woman would want this? What is the purpose? It's stupid. Not attractive, yet, in Japan, it is a happening thing among many women. Why not men? Do we, as a species, not fall for these lame things? Maybe.
The bagel head is created by injecting 13.5 ounces of saline into your forehead to create a huge welt, then, using your thumb, press in the center to create the donut. The process takes about two hours and the bagel lasts for a day, then you can do it again!
The dangers include a non-sterile saline injection, injecting too much salt that would dehydrate you, infections that could take hole under the skin. Creating a bagel welt on the forehead too many times may also create the skin in the impacted area to be too stretched over time making it very saggy.
