    A private in the U.S. Army has undergone a radical new plastic surgery treatment to replace her left ear lost in a car accident.

    Two years ago private Shamika Burrage survived a violent single-vehicle car accident that resulted in the loss of her entire left ear. Now plastic surgeons working with the U.S. Army have successfully completed a new kind of ear transplant and reconstruction.

    Cartlidge from Burrage’s ribs was used to first build a new ear which was then placed under the skin of Burrage’s right forearm.
