We're all a little self-conscious. Many of us look in the mirror and wish there was one thing we could change. For those who want to enhance their image, there's plastic surgery to take care of that. You're probably familiar with the standard procedures: liposuction, implants, botox — but there are some new plastic surgery procedures out there you might not be aware of. We're bringing you this list to catch you up on the latest trends in plastic surgery.

Want to be taller? There's surgery for that. Want longer eye lashes? There's surgery for that. How about a snake-like tongue? Surgery can take care of you there, too. You can even go under the knife for those dimples you always wanted.

Don’t like your palm lines or your palm reading? Reclaim control of your own destiny with palm line surgery. Palm line surgery has become all the rage in Japan and Korea.

A gummy smile isn't when you smile with a mouth full of gummy bears: It's when the gums above your teeth are so pronounced they dominate the smile. There's surgery to get rid of that and it's called gingivectomy. There are a number of ways to achieve the desired effect, from botox injections, surgery that fixes lip movement, or a surgical removal of the excess gum tissue.
