The new trend in body modification? Bagel heads – injecting saline solution into the forehead to create a temporary bagel-like shape. They’re injecting saline into the forehead, then pressing in the center of the swollen area with a thumb. The saline shot causes a “slight stinging sensation” and a feeling of steady pressure.
The results of the two-hour treatment last just 16-24 hours, after which the saline is absorbed by the body and the forehead reduces back to its normal size. The show Taboo: Premiered Sunday, September 23 on National Geographic channel, check out the segment below.
By the way, the saline injections can be done on any part of the body, some people have even had ‘scrotal infusions.’ Would you be down to do the Bagel head or some other part of your body?
