A 12-year-old who was mauled as a baby by a pet raccoon will soon have a new ear. Plastic surgeon Kongkrit Chaiyasate fashioned the ear with cartilage from the girl's ribs, implanted it on her arm to grow skin and successfully attached it to her head. Chaiyasate will perform a skin graft later to repair the wound left after removing the ear from the girl's arm.
