Almost every little girl dreams of having their doll themed wishes come true, and with this doll-inspired plastic surgery app, all wishes come true.

This offbeat app is a doll-inspired program that allows its target market to become little surgeons in the comfort of wherever they're using their iPads. The app tells the story of an overweight and "lesser attractive" doll wanting to make a few tweaks and alterations to her appearance. With the help of the user, the doll undergoes liposuction and other cosmetic surgery procedures that require injecting anesthetic and making incisions with a scalpel.

After a week of release, Apple pulled the doll-inspired plastic surgery app from its store never to be seen again by the eyes of young girls nine years and under. Stats for Children's Cosmetic Surgery Apps Trending: Older & Mild
