Plastic surgeon Mark Saperstein has made a splash on the internet for his “bubbles” procedure, in which he inserts a plastic earring into the ears of a patient.
The procedure, which is being sold by a company called EarEar, involves removing the earrings and reattaching them to the patient’s head using a small hole.
“I had never done this before, so I’m not sure how it works,” Mr Sapersteins mother, Sarah, told The New Paper.
Mr Sapersstein has become a household name in the US, after posting a video on YouTube of the procedure. “
But it’s worth it.”

It has also been viewed more than 7.7 million times.
The operation is described on the company’s website as a “treat to help with ear infections”.
It costs $20 a head and can take up to a week to perform, and the procedure requires a plastic surgeon to do the work.
“The ears are not damaged, the ear is not cut,” Mr Jansen told The Telegraph.
“And the earring is inserted into the ear.”
He added that the procedure was “much more comfortable than the average plastic surgery”.
“The surgery has always been about making sure the ears are aligned correctly.
This is the first time we have seen a silicone earring that can actually make a difference,” Mr Hickey said.
“This is a much more unique treatment that can really be a benefit to people’s health and well-being.”
He said earrings could help to treat “all kinds of different conditions”.
The US is the world’s biggest earring market, with earrings from the likes of Chanel, Louis Vuitton and LVMH making up more than 10 per cent of the market.
Mr Sapersstein said the surgery was “not just cosmetic surgery, it’s a major operation”.
“There’s a lot of people who have had earring implants and had no problem, they can still have a full ear with the right placement,” he said.
The surgery is only available in the UK.
The US and US-based EarEar offer similar procedures in countries like the UK, Germany and Austria.
“There are a lot more options out there for the public, but we’re very much committed to doing the right thing,” Mr Tapp, a spokeswoman for EarEar told The Times.
“We’re hoping that we’ll be able to make this a standard procedure across the US market by the end of the year.”
Mr Tapps family has lived in Sydney since he was four, and his mother said he had been a regular at local schools.
He graduated with a degree in physics, and has since worked for an engineering firm.
He said the procedure would allow him to make money in the business.
“If it’s the right way, people will want to use it and people will find ways to use them,” he told The Daily Telegraph.
A spokesman for Ear EarEar said the company would “continue to support the medical profession and to provide our patients with a high-quality earring experience”.
