Surely you remember when The Hangover star Mike Tyson bit the ear of Evander Holyfield during an epic match? What you may not know is that Evander’s ear is now as good as new, thanks to some careful reconstructive surgery.
Maybe he got hungry or maybe he was just in a bad mood, but Mike Tyson bit off part of Evander Holyfield’s ear. These days, Evander’s ear looks just fine, with the help of some reconstructive surgery that replaced the cartilage missing after the bite.
Miami plastic surgeon Dr. Michael Salzhauer says, “Evander Holyfield’s ear reconstruction surgery would have entailed grafting back the missing cartilage to his ear. If the piece of the ear that was bitten off was too damaged to be used for the graft, then a piece of cartilage from some other body area such as behind the ear could have been used.”
Evander’s ear looks great after his plastic surgery recovery and Mike Tyson seems to have found a new career, with little damage to his reputation.
