The congenital protruding ear is a source of great concern to the young person as well as the adult who has lived with his or her condition their entire life. Ear surgery, or “otoplasty,” is designed to make the ear lie closer to the head.

The procedure involves a small incision on the backside of the ear and then the cartilage is carefully and precisely reshaped to restore or construct the natural folds of the ear.
