The world hates women

The world hates women.

That can be the only plausible explanation for the invention of this device, described as an "internal bra" (via Echidne).
The internal bra is a harness-like device is inserted under the skin using a local anaesthetic. The procedure should also be cheaper than a traditional breast lift, which costs around £4,000 and often requires an overnight stay in hospital.

It is similar in shape to a fabric bra, but is made of silicone, the plastic already used in breast implants.

Surgeons make two tiny cuts less than a centimetre wide underneath each breast.

Silicone cups like the ones used in a traditional uplift bra are then are then inserted around 1cm below the skin.

Then surgeons fit fine straps made from a strong material that will hold the bra in place without it sagging These are attached to the ribs between the breast and the shoulder with a pair of titanium screws.
Pardon me. I had hoped to have something suitably Magically incisive to say, but after reading that description I need to go throw up for a bit.
