While the Internet was swarmed recently with photos of a fantasy fan, who decided to lengthened her ears as elfish ones it became clear that KISS’ guitarist Paul Stanley has done the opposite.
Paul Stanley, the famous guitarist of the rock band KISS, suffered a not so glamorous childhood thanks to his Microtia condition, which deformed his right ear and caused deafness in it. Through the years Stanley became a subject of bullying, jokes and mockery, which resulted in him visiting a psychologist through his teenage years. His childhood memories have left a permanent scar on him and he was afraid to wear his long hair short or tied in a bun thanks to his ear deformation. However, back when he was in his 30s Stanley underwent a surgery and trimmed his ears so they would look even.
Nowadays the rock star is still delighted about the surgery and has never been happier about his looks.
