Chiromanoplasty: Euvoluntary?

Levitt & Dubner feature a curious markets in everything: cosmetic surgery for the lines on your palms.

I saw the source article a couple of days ago and tried to judge this transaction's euvoluntarity. I mean, it seems like a clear rip-off, but unless the surgery is botched, it doesn't seem like there's much to regret. If someone wants to believe in palm-reading, what's the harm done?

What do you think? Superstitional surgical alteration of the palms: euvoluntary or not?

Do you have suggestions on where we could find more examples of this phenomenon?
