Tech Neck: The Crazy New Plastic Surgery Option

0
0

A recent article about "tech neck" surgery released by ELLE Magazine has us strangely intrigued yet also a bit disturbed.

This new plastic surgery option is designed to fix the loose skin and double chin that appear while you're using your fave tech device, like an iPhone or laptop. As ELLE points out, it's hard to say whether our gadgets are causing this "problem," or we have begun to notice "tech neck" because of our increase in social media use.

As an alternative to neck lifts or liposuction, Dr. James Marotta, a Long-Island based plastic surgeon, suggests a procedure called Ultherapy. Ultherapy uses the power ultrasound to encourage the body to produce collagen and therefore prevent wrinkles. It may sound harmless, but it costs a whopping $2,000 and lasts for only a year or two. 

The fact that someone even noticed "tech neck" and decided to make it something to worry about is ridiculous. Will this be the next thigh gap trend, with people obsessing over something that comes with being human? 

There's no need for this plastic surgery, ladies, and there are so many other aspects of life that are much more important than worrying about "tech neck." Plus, that $2,000 could be put toward a vacation, student loans or savings.

So, collegiettes, keep on keeping on with your social media habits, and don't let the "tech neck" craze stop you from enjoying the Internet and all of its wonders!
