It’s a new diet fad and for some it may be hard to swallow!  The tongue patch is a new cosmetic surgery technique
that  allegedly helps people lose up to thirty pounds in a month via a postage-stamp-sized patch stitched on the tongue.  The rough patch basically makes eating solid food a major pain.  The procedure, which has yet to be approved by the FDA, costs about $2,000.   For safety reasons, the patch must be removed after 30 days.
