Women Are Having 'Calf Liposuction' So They Can Fit Into 'Skinny Boots'
Of all the crazy things we report on here, this is one of the craziest. Women, like 39-year-old Monica Escobar of Houston, are playing Russian roulette with their lives in order to fit into a pair of boots. She had a $4000 calf boot surgery, also known as calf liposuction, because she envied the way other women look in their boots. "When I wear boots, I like the gap when I see it on other women," she said. "Like they have the gap with their outfit and I'm like, 'That's what I want my leg to look like.'" Apparently, the surgery was a success. "As the swelling goes down, I'm really excited to get into some skinny boots," Monica says. Sidebar: Is it rude of us to wonder aloud why she didn't have lipo on the rest of her body or paid that money to a personal trainer and nutritionist or purchased custom-made boots? Just sayin'. Gurl, good night!
