One of the latest trends in modern day plastic surgery is dedicated to all the fans of “Lord of The Rings” , “Star Trek”, “Avatar” and many other fantasy movies. The fictional charismatic characters depicted in such movies have inspired hundreds of people to go under the knife. The reason is quite clear : they all want the sharp and pointy elfish ears and will happily pay the hefty price for it.
The procedure itself is something quite unique. Although it’s rather painful and completely irreversible more and more people would gladly submit to it. Willingly, they have their ears sliced in half and then sewed back together to form a pointy edge. Either inspired by Mr. Spock, Arwen or Legolas, all the people eager to have it done are completely fascinated by the pointy ears look.
However, many certified plastic surgeons refuse to perform such procedures. According to the specialists, the risks are just not worth it. Many advise that you can suffer from an ear infection and ultimately lose your ears. Plus the pain is just too much for a “silly” look like this, claim certain doctors.
