Japanese Girl's Dream Come True! Nose Lifter

You'd be surprised to know that most Japanese (well, all Asians in general) think they have a flat nose. I don't know about that. I like their noses just they way they are, thank you.

Can you imagine if every Japanese girl ran around with a schnozzola like Jimmy Durante?

No thanks.

Well, anyway. Japanese girls think their noses are too flat. You'd think this was no big deal but I've met many girls who claim that because their nose is too flat, they cannot wear fashion brand designer sunglasses. Now, for a country full of women who think about designer goods constantly, THAT IS a problem!

I'm not making this up.

Just to show you how much of a preplexing drama the Japanese actually perceive this as being, a company has come out with a gadget that they claim can lift the bridge of your nose. Talk about snake-oil salesmen!

Geeky Gadget reports:

Do you dream of having a more beautiful, higher nose? But you shy away from going to a plastic surgeon? Then you might want to check out the so-called “Beauty Lift High Nose”, a gadget made by Japanese company Omni.
According to its maker, all you need to do is to stick the device on your nose for about 3 minutes per day and let its do its magic (Omni also says that it fits noses of various kinds). The thing is supposed to “raise” the bridge of your nose by vibrating and thus “stimulating” the nasal bone (it’s powered by a CR2032 battery).
The Beauty High Lift Nose is made in Japan, sized at 7×5×7.5cm and weighs 25.
If you want to try it out but live outside Japan, get the device over at the the Japan Trend Shop for $144.

Ladies, I linked to the shop that sells this device. I know the people who run that establishment and they are great, honest folks... But this product is a scam...

If you really do want a nose lift, then I think you need to see a qualified plastic surgeon.

I think your nose is cute enough as is.

If this product had a switch that allowed the user to run the machine in reverse, thereby shrinking the schnozzola, I might be a buyer.

Japanese girls should be on their knees, thanking whomever, that they are not cursed with the gene that causes a large nose.

I know quite a few "Asian" ladies who suffer the opposite in terms of complex(es). Many Indian, Pakistani and Bangladeshi ladies are crying out for the shnoz shrink. Any chance of transplant synergy?

It's crazy how women in various countries are persuaded that there's such a particular beauty ideal and everyone must throw away so much of their money pursuing it.

Sigh, I broke my nose twice in high school and the second time I didn't get it fixed, so it's crooked. I wonder if that thing'd fix it ;)
