Ear Pointing

Ear pointing is a procedure by which "Vulcan" or "elf"-like ears are created. A small wedge of tissue is removed at the tip of the ear, and the two edges are then sutured together. Assuming uneventful healing, the resultant ear will have a far more pronounced tip.

It is important to note that this procedure removes tissue, and does not add any. There is no extension to the length or height of the ear — if that's what you're looking for, you've still got a few years to wait at least.

This is a pseudosurgical procedure and is only being offered by a small handful of practitioners such as Steve Haworth (who is generally considered to have invented it), Lukas Zpira, Jonathan Martinez, Brian Decker and Emilio Gonzalez.
