Say "I love you" with the gift of cosmetic surgery.
Forget about the flowers and chocolate. This Valentine's Day, couples in China are giving each other plastic makeovers. According to the BBC:
"Young lovers in China's largest city, Shanghai, are turning to cosmetic surgery as a Valentine's Day present. Three couples even asked one clinic for matching noses or eye features, the official China Daily reported. The clinic's director, Liu Chunlong, said business from 20-somethings had risen 30% since 4 February.
"China has seen a boom in cosmetic operations in recent years, and is now home to a million plastic surgery clinics, according to Xinhua news."
I just have one question for the couples who get the matching features: what if you break up?
