A new trend in Japan is seeing people having surgery done on their palms to influence their reading.
Palmistry involves analyzing the lines on a person's palms in order to predict their future. The practice is taken so seriously in some places that a Japanese doctor, Takaaki Matsuoka, is offering patients surgical procedures to change the lines on their palm to provide a favorable reading. The surgery involves the use of an electric scalpel rather than a laser so that it leaves a mark instead of healing up afterwards.
"If you donít have the marriage line, it means you will most likely not get married. So the job of the doctor is to create a marriage line," said Matsuoka. "Sometimes the marriage line is there, but it came too early and the woman missed her chance. So we add another one."
"The operations cost about $1,100 and take about 10 to 15 minutes, plus one month recovery time for the new wounds."
