A British woman lost 55 pounds after she was hypnotized to believe that she had weight-loss surgery. Marion Cornes, 35, said she believed surgeons had placed a gastric band on her stomach shrinking it to the size of a golf ball after paying $1,580 for five sessions with a hypnotherapist."

Certainly a much better alternative to the real surgery so long as the hypnotist knows exactly what he/she is doing so as to avoid any side-effects. Unfortunately hypnotism doesn't work on everybody, though.
