Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Alexander Sinclair, M.D. insisted that the method could also work by changing a person's bone structure since it compresses the rib cage.

Bariatric physician Jyotindra Shah has claimed that there's a reason women left corsets behind in the Victorian Era because it's long-term use can bruise liver, spleen and kidneys, damage skin and restrict breathing.

Shah added that the lack of oxygenation as a result of wearing the corset might actually contribute to metabolic syndrome, which leads to weight gain as oxygen helps speed up the metabolism process.

Shah believes that corset diet is no diet at all.
