Anonymous asked: I figured you guys might be the best to ask, even though it's kinda weird but you guys ARE kpop thighs and tushes.. So Heechul was in a bad car accident years ago, and he ended up having iron rods put into his legs to help the healing process, does he have any scarring from that? (Also are you guys aware Heechul took Kangin's part in the cross dressing performance for ss5 in Macau?)
So I temporarily became an expert on internal fixation of a femoral fracture using an intramedullary rod, and since it was Heechul’s femur that was fractured the surgery would have taken place on his succulent upper thigh.
Depending on how large and where the fracture took place on the femur, it could have required nothing more than small incisions to place the rods over the fractured part of the bone for healing. If it was a larger fracture, it would have required a slightly larger incision, naturally.
These kind of surgery, though, generally doesn’t include huge incisions along the side of the leg as surgeons are able to insert the rod through a main access point to the fracture, and then make much smaller incision points where screws need to be fixated.
Furthermore, given that Heechul was most likely taken care of by the best surgeons SM could afford, I’m sure they made sure scarring would be minimal. Scars for this type of surgery generally don’t turn out too bad anyway.
Honestly, from what we can tell from Lady HeeHee, Heechul has little to no visible scarring on his legs.
And omgoodness, yes. We did see this lovely creature.
I hope I answered your question in the most complicated way possible.
