Ear Pointing Surgery: Elf Ears or Mr. Spock? – ABC News.

I’ve always been a Trekkie! And I couldn’t decide if I liked Spock the best, or Captain Kirk. I just never thought about plastic surgery to change my ears! Ouch! And the article says “But doctors “GMA” talked to warn that sculpting cartilage is dangerous.

“The real risks are one – major deformity of the ear, which is very easy to have happen and two, infection of the ear,” said Dr. Arthur W. Perry, author of “Straight Talk About Cosmetic Surgery.” “And if infection occurs, it can destroy the ear within days.”

“It’s very difficult and often it’s not possible to fully reconstruct a nice-looking ear,”

he said. ”

So…maybe not a good idea! They are kind of cool looking, though.
