Today RealSelf.com received its 20,000th answer from a doctor. Congrats to Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. Rod Rohrich for posting #20,000! Dr. Rod Rohrich

In less than a year's time, the doctors on RealSelf.com composed over 20,000 responses to consumer questions about everything from the best ways to get rid of forehead wrinkles to how to whiten teeth.

While very serious questions are being addressed by these professionals, every so often the community poses a somewhat unusual question. Despite being time starved, the doctors on RealSelf.com stepped up to lend their medical opinion.  Here are 3 examples that capture the diversity of our inquisitive community:

foot pads

 o What can be done about injections placed in the foot pads, done to give the feeling of walking on pillows?

The doctors say: don't inject your feet

 o Will ear surgery help keep the ear buds in place for the ipod headphones?ear surgery for ipod headphones?

The doctors say: it can't

o How does one get a "tush like Kim Kardashian"?

The doctors say (in so many words): You get it by birth, not via a Brazilian Butt Liftbuttocks

Have a more serious question for the board certified dermatologists and plastic surgeons on RealSelf.com?  Go ahead and ask, it's free (of course!).
