Apparently a recent trend in the New York music scene is undergoing plastic surgery to obtaining a permanent pair of Star Trek Vulcan ears! We aren’t sure how true this is, but this body modification is said to enhance the music listening experience. Done under local anesthesia, the plastic surgeon supposedly uses existing ear cartilage and skin to extend the top of the ear, and after three to four weeks, is healed enough to convincingly start telling people to live long and prosper. Developed by Hungarian plastic surgeon, Dr. Lajos Nagy, it is said to be safe and easily tolerated.
We have always said that ears are among the most noticeable of features, and we regularly do otoplasty for children and adults alike who have endured years of teasing about the appearance of their protruding ears. But we are speechless on Dr. Spock ears!
