Many people have prominent ears. Some have been fortunate enough to have had theirs corrected in childhood, whilst many others live with the stigma for years. Girls and women often grow their hair long to disguise the problem but many boys and teenagers, feeling unable to do this, become increasingly self-conscious the older they get. Patients tend to be very satisfied with the results after their ear surgery.
The correction of prominent ears (also known as otoplasty) can be a very rewarding procedure at any age and is something we will certainly consider for teenagers. This treatment works to improve the overall shape and appearance of the ear by removing or reshaping the cartilage within your ear.
