Of course, the important thing is what you have between your ears; still, especially children suffer from their protruding ears when they get bullied and made fun of by their playmates.

For adults, too, protruding ears may present an important factor leading to psychological strain. If this gets too tough, an ear correction (otoplasty) may present relief.

Interesting information about ear correction (otoplasty)

Protruding ears are mostly a result of insufficient folding of the ear cartilage, often in combination with a misalignment of the ear in relation to the skull. Both may be corrected by otoplasty – for children as for adults suffering from their obtrusive ears, it offers a durable relief from their problems. With small children, one tends to wait with surgery until they are pre-schoolers, afterwards otoplasty is feasible at any age.

We’d like to discuss any potential risks as well as the otoplasty treatment procedure in your individual case, explaining all details and answering your questions, in a personal consulting session. Please contact us for further information.
