If protruding or disfigured ears bother you or your child, plastic surgery may be considered. Ear surgery - also known as otoplasty - can improve the shape, position or proportions of the ears.
Surgery corrects a defect in the structure of the ears present since birth, which becomes apparent with development, or treats deformed ears caused by the injury.
Otoplasty creates a natural shape, giving balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correction of minor deformities can benefit appearance and self-esteem.
