“Bagel head” trend sweeps Japan

An odd new trend has emerged in Japan known as “bagel head”. The look is created by first injecting saline into the forehead, then pressing down in the centre of the swollen area. The result gives the appearance of a bagel stuck under the skin.

The process takes around two hours to complete, and is undertaken at a Tokyo body modification clinic. The results last between 16 and 24 hours, at which stage the skin shrinks back to its original form.

One “bagel head” described the feeling as relaxing. “It’s kind of tingly and a building pressure that feels like it’s sending me to sleep.”

On seeing the final result the man stated, “I’m impressed. I look delicious.”
