Wakatsuki Yumi: Story of Eyelid Surgery

               On Nov. 14th, Wakatsuki Yumi admitted to receiving eyelid surgery in her first year of high school. She stated that she had Epiblepharon, or inverted eyelashes, a medical condition in which your eyelashes grow into your eyes instead of outwards. This leads to the eyelashes scratching your cornea. Her doctor told her that it would contribute to blindness if untreated. Yumi said that there were other treatments to cure inverted eyelids, such as burning off the eyelashes or cutting them off; however, they were only temporary. She hopes that she can speak out to the people with the same condition by voicing out her cosmetic procedure.

                Picture from Yumi's birthday tribute on episode 35 of "Nogizaka tte doko?"

Her story was then published on Cinema Today & become a hot topic on yahoo! one day later.
The article which starts with calling it as not so much of an "cosmetic surgery".

           Myumyu have had some major publicity this year. Late of last year she was suspended from activities for a scandal, had a design featured in an art exhibition this year, featured in a Shizuoka Guidebook, and became a cast member of "Rhousoku". Some even predicting Myumyu to become one of the even more popular members of Nogizaka46 later on due to her accomplishments.
