The latest cosmetic surgery trend will surprise you.

Lip fillers, breast augmentation, Botox, tummy tucks - there's no end when it comes to the options available if you decide to get cosmetic surgery.

However, the latest trend has us stumped.

You may not have even known that they existed, but apparently back dimples are set to be one of the biggest cosmetic surgery trends of 2017.

Thanks to the rise of Instagram culture, whereby you can't scroll through the discover page without seeing a toned and tanned celebrity or influencer in a bikini, back dimples have become coveted by women worldwide.

However, back dimples appear naturally on only some people's backs and are near impossible to create through exercising, meaning if you want them but aren't born with them, surgery is the most favourable route.

Founder of W1 Wellness Clinic in London, Dr Amanda Wong-Powell has developed the V-Spot treatment which focuses on creating back dimples.

"The V-spot is a curved diamond area in the back and is usually found naturally on the body of very sporty and athletic women, this is why a lot of women want to go under the knife to have their V-spot done because they want to look young and fit - think Jessica Ennis," she told the Daily Mail.

"The lower back has always been championed as a beautiful region of the female body."

The procedure, which costs €5700 upwards, has a recovery time of ten days,  however it can take up to three months to see the final effect.
