Pointifying your ears enhances attractiveness, music?


Looking for a little extra attention from Mom and Dad? Dr. Lajos Nagy, plastic surgeon to the stars dorks, performs pointy-ear plastic surgery to "not only enhance the attractiveness of the face, but also improve the experience of listening to music."

Apparently Dr. Nagy has performed the surgery on thousands of ears in the New York City area and is planning to offer the same surgery in Hungary.

"The philosophy and technics of the operative procedure was developed only a few years ago, but our experiences on more than one thousand ears revealed the fact, that the operation is safe and well-tolerated by patients. We perform the operation as a one-day-surgery, mostly under local anaesthesia.

The procedure itself means a very careful dissection of the structures at the upper pole of the earlobe. The required reshaping is achieved by modellation of a specially designed chondro-cutaneous flap (a flap containing the own cartilage and skin of the patient). The new shape is fixed by means of absorbable sutures, skin closure is made with unabsorbable uninterrupted sutures."

Please let this be a very elaborate hoax.
