Otoplasty

prominent earOtoplasty is a surgery to correct the position of the outside portion of the ear. The surgery is performed on prominent or outstanding ears usually for cosmetic reasons.

However, in some cases the ears still appear different and in some cases the ears revert to their original position. The surgery involves an incision made behind the ear in most cases.
