Towers of human chinbones? Oh yes.
A South Korean plastic surgeon faces a fine after building "bone towers" in his Gangnam district clinic filled with jawbone shards from hundreds of patients, a local official said on Thursday.
The 60-centimetre-tall (23.6 inch) glass structures were filled with jawbone parts removed during surgery, said the official at the Gangnam district office in Seoul.
The clinic specialises in jaw procedures, which are very popular in South Korea, especially among women aspiring to a thinner facial look with a V-shaped chin.
