Elf Ear Surgery! Would you do it?

Postby BagginsGirl » Mon Sep 02, 2013 11:35 am

While on the internet looking for hair style ideas, I came across a website that said there is a surgery you can have done on your ears to make them look like elf ears. It cost any where from about $1,800-$8,000 u.s. dollars,is apparently easy to do, and a big hit among Lord of the Rings fans & Star Trek fans ( yeah, we got grouped with the Trekkies).
After having the surgery done people claim they can hear better and find listening to music more enjoyable. Some people say its unattractive, frivolous, deforms the human body, and amounts to nothing more then a rare birth defect ( ouch). But others find it very attractive and think its a great way to express themselves.

So, my question is would any of you do it?

My sister said if she had the money, and could just blow it she would have it done.
Would I do it? Well, yes if my ears weren't already pointed. But I was born with, what I now know is a rare birth defect. So I actually have natural pointed elf ears.

But what do you guys think? Would you do it? Or is it just too weird?
Thanks for your comments! :)

Oh, and just as an after thought, this isn't a sales gimmick! I just wanted your opinions on the elf ear surgery, and to see what you thoughts were.

That's . . . obsessive. But interesting!
Personally, no I would not, because I am content to be a human as God made me.

While I can see why some people may go for it, personally I won't advice that! You can look elvish by putting fake Elf-ears.
Is your sister young? I mean still a teenager or a child? Because I know children may sway with the things they love! I remember me wanting a Spidey suit when I was 5! :P

What I find more interesting, is that you have Elvish ears.... Yes, preciousss!

My sisters a teenager, so * shrugs* She may only want them as a passing fad.
But, yes, I have natural elf ears. I'd want the surgery ( if mine weren't natural) only because I couldn't imagine life with out pointed ears!

I think it would look neat, but I personally wouldn't do it.
