Most people with protruding ears perceive them to be an aesthetic inconvenience. Congenital in origin, protruding ears can be a source of social discomfort, especially during childhood.
Nowadays, ear surgery makes it easy to pin the ears back thanks to a technique called otoplasty. In most cases, this is a simple and minor procedure that offers good results and causes very few complications.
In general, both ears are affected by these malformations. However, in some cases, only one ear may be affected by these anomalies.
Otoplasty – one of the oldest and simplest aesthetic surgeries – can be performed under local or general anaesthesia, depending on your preference and age. The procedure involves reshaping the cartilage to reposition the ears closer to the head. This ear reshaping will be adapted to the shape and size of your face in order to restore a harmonious whole.
