Stuff I don’t need to see: Bagelheads, Health Aspects

[ 27 ] August 31, 2011 |

Bagelheads, Body Modification,  without a Cutting Edge?

Bagelheads

Yes, you are seeing it right.  Women over 45 and (our younger friends),  these fine upstanding youngsters  pictured are fondly called Bagelheads.  These uber-happening youths are part of a underground Body Modification scene  (Body-Mod)  that inject medical grade saline into their  foreheads.  The whole process can take up to two hours, with the bagel effect created by pressing your thumb into the mound of saline.  GROSSED OUT YET????

WAIT THERE IS MORE….FREAK FOR A NIGHT

It only lasts one night…yeah that’s right.  After that the saline absorbs back into the skin, usually by the next morning…kinda like a werewolf?  Reportly, the forehead is not the only place that peole are injecting..but I can’t even go there, so just use your imagination…or don’t, I don’t blame you.

Bagelhead…Just what every Mommy wishes for..

But it’s harmless right?  I mean it’s just saline and it absorbs by morning!  People use saline  for their contact lenses for goodness sake!

Top Plastic Surgeon comments on Bagelheads and Medical Concerns

Medically speaking Brian S. Glatt, MD, FACS, a renowned  Board Certified Plastic Surgeon from New Jersey/New York  City Area comments:

The procedure, of creating a “Bagelhead” is theoretically medically safe–providing that medical grade STERILE  saline solution is utilized.  But certain protocols must be followed and risks must always be considered.

  • Sterile Medical grade  saline is indeed a MUST.   Really essential salt water,   Saline is used in standard IV fluid as the most common element.  You also will find, many people use Sterile Saline to wet their contact lense.  It is a safe substance to inject into your skin but precautions are a must!
  • Utilize Proper Injection Techniques.  Anytime, a substance is injected into your body by a person with insufficient medical training their is always the risk of damage to the underlying skin structures.  Medical injections should only be done by a medical professional.    You must always consider if you are causing harm to the the blood vessels, nerves, and muscles when injecting ANYTHING into the skin.  Improper injections can lead to dangerous injuries, infections or permanent damage.
  • Long term effects of continued use:  Overexpanding the skin to this extent, resulting in a Bagelhead, can lead irreparable harm  to the forehed in the soft tissues and skin.  It could result in sagging, loosening, and even thinning.  The damage may not be readily apparent but long term effects might  be seen years down the ROAD.

Okay,  EWWWWWWW!
