A cosmetic surgery clinic has been criticized for offering women extreme treatment to give them “fox eyes” — with some accusing the company of turning hundreds into Spock from Star Trek.
Manchester-based MCR Aesthetics has been ridiculed online for its ‘glow-up’ packages that scarely teach women’s eyebrows.
While the new trend for ‘fox eyes’, which involves putting supposedly invisible strings above the eyes to pull them up, is popular with celebrities like Bella Hadid, critics claim it turns the women of Manchester into creepy zombie-esque clones.
Followers of the brand on Instagram have been stunned by the ‘alien’ before and after the photos, with one writing: ‘Spockish – hard no.’

One commented, “Those eyebrows are like she’s from another planet,” while another simply said, “She looks like an alien.”
One of them said in reference to the 90’s movie starring Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy, ‘Why oh why are you doing this with your face shape, it’s perfect the way it was, it’s unnatural that it looks like one of Hocus Pocus.’
Kristinapixiehare added: “Now they all look like bloated clones of each other.”
And one more added; “Everyone has been cloned to look like Bratz dolls. Why!!!! They are all on a very slippery expensive slope, this will have to be repeated a lot, taking full advantage of people’s insecurities.”
The ‘fox eye’ treatment uses biodegradable threads to surgically pull up the eyes, which can take weeks to a year (left, another woman before her treatment and right, after)

Naveen Cavale, plastic surgeon consultant at the Real Plastic Surgery clinic in London, insisted: ‘Be careful when considering such extreme procedures that can have lasting effects (or side effects) at a young age.
“Find a GMC specialist or an NMC-certified aesthetic nurse who practices from a properly CQC-regulated clinic, not a beauty salon or spa.”
MCR Aesthetics did not respond to requests for comment.
The subtle brow lift treatment that gives clients a ‘cat’s eye’ look has grown in popularity in recent years — inspired by celebrities like Bella Hadid (seen left, earlier, 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 anesthetic injection above the forehead and the 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 dissolves over time with minimal side effects. The skin folds and needle mark will heal completely within 3-10 days and leave a natural lift.
The costs are on average €500-€750.
How long does it take?
The result lasts up to a year.
What is the difference with surgery?
There are no permanent changes to your face and no part of your eyelid is cut away as with an eyelid correction. You can also adjust the changes after the treatment if you want a less dramatic look.
