A protruding belly, a nose that is too small, or unaesthetic wrinkles are just some of the "imperfections" of pets that can be retouched with aesthetic interventions. However, what motivates dog owners to seek help from specialists?
Aesthetic interventions are not only fashionable among people, but also four-legged people began to use the services of specialists, more precisely, cosmetic surgeries and so on.
Brazilian plastic surgeon Edgar Brito told DuJour magazine that he has performed numerous cosmetic procedures on dogs, including botulinum toxin injections, facelifts, nose jobs and testicular implants. However, what motivates masters to turn to him for help?
"It will make the dog look and feel better in his own skin"
Artist Linda Olle told the same publication: “I know a man who wanted to give his dog a testicular implant. That person said that this way the dog would look and feel better in his own skin, ”writes“ Your Tango ”. However, it sounds extreme and extravagant, but pet owners may operate on their animals for reasons strictly related to their health. For example, dogs prone to wrinkling around the eyes may benefit from a skin smoothing treatment, as this area of the face can harbor dangerous bacteria that can cause infection.
