Elf Ears – The Newest Plastic Surgery Trend?

I read an interesting article today introducing one of the newest trends in plastic surgery: Creating Elf Ears. There is a Hungarian plastic surgeon practicing in New York City who created this procedure and even claims that it can “improve the experience of listening to music.” Apparently there are “music faun clubs” which are dance clubs that only allow entrance to those with pointy ears.

This is a new one for me! By looking at the photos I can see how the procedure is done. It’s a variation of the types of surgeries we do to reconstruct an ear after part of it is removed for cancer. Instead of making your ear look normal, however, it makes you look like Spock.

I’d rather my daughter get a tramp stamp than one of these!

  2. This is kind of cute, but I have to say no one has come to me for this procedure! I am relieved. I tend to have patients that want the usual breast augmentations, liposuction, tummy tucks, or face lifts. Maybe it is my location.
