Few things can be a greater source of self-consciousness as having prominent ears. Ear surgery, also know as otoplasty, refines the size and appearance of large or prominent ears. This procedure can improve prominently set ears that extend away from the head, or reduce the appearance of disproportionately large ears.
Anyone who is uncomfortable with the shape or appearance of their ears can benefit from otoplasty. It is safe to perform otoplasty on children as young as five or six, as by then the ear is nearly fully developed. Ear surgery is often performed on adolescents who are self-conscious about the size or angle of their ears. Adults can equally benefit from otoplasty. The procedure can usually be done under local anesthetic on adults, and leaves subtle scars behind the ear only.
Older individuals may benefit as well, finding that, with age, their ears have become out of proportion with the rest of their head, causing their ears to seem larger in comparison.
