Otoplasty - Prominent Ear

Improving your appearance with ear surgery.

If protruding or disfigured ears bother you or your child, ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, may be considered. Ear surgery can improve the shape, position, or proportion of the ears. The surgery corrects a defect in the ear structure that is present from birth and becomes apparent with development or treats deformed ears caused by injury.

Otoplasty creates a natural shape, giving balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correction of minor deformities can benefit the appearance and self-esteem.

  • Large ears – a rare condition called macrotia,
  • Protruding ears that occur on one or both sides to varying degrees – not associated with hearing loss,
  • Adult dissatisfaction with previous ear surgery.


Otoplasty is a highly individualized procedure, and you should do it for yourself, not to satisfy someone else’s desires or to fit any sort of ideal image.
