A patient is seen as she goes through the so-called ''double eyelid surgery'', which adds a crease to the eyelids to make the eyes appear larger, in a plastic surgery clinic in Shanghai November 4, 2007. Chinese government officials estimate that $2.4 billion was spent last year on plastic surgery procedures, with 1 million operations taking place. Double eyelid surgery is the most popular cosmetic procedure in China. REUTERS/Nir Elias
