In a recent photograph taken of him, the King of Pop seemed to be suffering from severe ear damage.
Jacko was said to have had bits of skin and cartilage taken off for years to restructure his nose.
The singer was alleged to have concealed the damage with his long hair since he first got tissue removed for his rebuilt hooter in the late 1990s, reports The Sun.
But recent pictures taken in Beverly Hills, California allegedly laid bare the real extent of the damage.
Douglas McGeorge, President of the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, however, said the shape of Jackson's left ear was "consistent" with cartilage removal from the shell.
Jackson has been rumoured to be suffering from skin cancer for quite some time.
