From vampire skin treatments to injectable breast lifts, the number of bizarre beauty treatments, procedures and products available in the market today is enormous. This collection of bizarre beauty enhancements is a testament to that, as it touches upon the lengths consumers will go to achieve physical perfection. Ironically, most of it isn't pretty.
