Thank you!

I had to google it, and this is what I found:

This is a diet that may be debatable as to whether or not it is really a diet. But it is perhaps one of the few weight loss plans that has actually been declared illegal. Ear stapling involved piecing a part of the inner ear, the theory is that this decreases your appetite. While many people believe that this diet really works, no one can really understand why. But the reason why it has been declared illegal is that it can easily cause infection and even nerve damage if it is done incorrectly. With very few people knowing the exact nature of the process, negative side effects are very common.

My mom and aunts had this done in the 1970s. The pin/staple whatever you want to call it, is still there, and comes near the surface every once in awhile. No success with it on the weightloss front.
