This Shocking New "Revenge Surgery" Trend Has Us Seriously Disturbed

Crying into your third pint of Ben & Jerry's seems well-adjusted by comparison

A record number of divorcees are topping off their separations with an extreme makeover -- and sadly, of the original variety, not "Home Edition."

A trade group reports that 26 percent of plastic surgery patients are now recently divorced women, and 11 percent are recently divorced men -- a rise from previous years.

What's even scarier: Plastic surgery clinics have smelled a marketing hook. They now package multiple services together with post-divorce discounts (to cushion the emotional blow and that costly settlement, most likely).

Plastic surgeon Dr. Brent Moelleken tells the Daily Mail, "Experienced plastic surgeons are watchful for patients who are doing surgery for the wrong reason."

Tell that to "revenge surgery" clinics. They're touting "second-chapter" and "life lift" packages that group services for the face, breasts, and tummy together in a bundle that promises to save you up to 25 percent on $20,000 to $30,000 worth of procedures. But when you factor in hefty recovery time and a mind blowing credit card bill, is it a fair discount? Smells fishy.

What do you think -- is this savvy business or taking advantage of people when they're emotionally vulnerable?
