One commented: ‘Those eyebrows are like she’s from another planet’ while another simply said: ‘She looks like an alien.’
One said in reference to the 90s film starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy: ‘Why oh why do this to your face shape it’s perfect as it was, it’s unnatural the point it looks like one of Hocus Pocus.’
Kristinapixiehare added: ‘Now they all look like blow up clones of each other.’
And another added; ‘Everyone’s cloned to look like Bratz dolls. Why!!!! They are all on a very slippery expensive slope, this will need repeating a lot, taking full advantage of people’s insecurities.’
The ‘fox-eye’ treatment uses biodegradable threads to surgically pull the eyes upwards, which can last from weeks to a year (left, another woman before her treatment, and right, after)

Naveen Cavale, consultant plastic surgeon at the London-based Real Plastic Surgery clinic, urged: ‘Please be careful when considering such extreme procedures that could have permanent effects (or side effects) at a young age.
‘Find a GMC specialist doctor or NMC certified aesthetic nurse, practising out of a properly CQC regulated clinic, not a beauty parlour or spa.’
MCR Aesthetics did not respond to requests for comment.
The subtle brow-lifting treatment which gives clients a ‘cat-eyed’ look has grown in popularity over the last few years – inspired by celebrities like Bella Hadid (seen left, before, and right with a more lifted look in recent years)
How does the Fox Eyes treatment work?
How it works
The procedure itself involves the administration of a local anaesthetic injection above the brow and insertion of a Polydioxanone suture under the skin through a single needle puncture. This is then left in place to support the lift.
The suture will dissolve overtime with minimal side effects. The skin folds and needle mark will fully heal over 3-10days leaving behind a natural lift.
The Cost on average is £500-£750.
How long does it last?
Results last up to a year.
How does it differ from surgery?
There are no permanent changes to your face and you won’t have part of your eyelid cut away as with a blepharoplasty. You can also adapt the changes after the treatment if you’d like a less dramatic look.
