Most prominent ears (or “bat ears”) lack a normal fold of cartilage. Sometimes other parts may be affected, and one ear may be worse than the other. Children with prominent ears are often teased at school.
Surgery is carried out to correct the deformities and set ears back closer to the head and create the most natural look. The result is a more attractive look that allows you to wear hair short or pulled back and restores confidence. Surgery can be performed on adults and children.
