According to a Wall Street Journal's report, a new trend in South Korea- a cosmetic procedure called the 'smile lipt'- is gaining popularity, Stuff.co.nz reported.
A video from the Seoul clinic Aone Plastic and Aesthetic Surgery explains that the surgery tugs the corners of your mouth upward to simulate a faint perma-smile.
The video claims that the adjustment creates a "bright and gentle" impression, which is probably handy until you want to convey something other than mild amiability.
The surgery works by severing the strong jaw muscles that naturally pull the mouth downward.
It has been reported that although it was originally marketed as an anti-aging procedure, now women in their 20s and 30s are its most common aspirants.
