Ears that appear to stick out or are overly large can be helped by otoplasty (ear surgery).

For the most part, the operation is done on children between the ages of 4 and 14. Ears are almost fully grown by age 4, and the earlier the surgery, the less teasing and ridicule the child will have to endure. Adults may also benefit from this, which can improve their self-esteem. Adults with protruding ears will tend to cover their ears with their hair.


Besides protruding ears, there are a variety of other ear problems that can be helped with surgery. These include: “lop ear,” when the tip seems to fold down and forward; “cupped ear,” which is usually a very small ear; and “shell ear,” when the curve in the outer rim, as well as the natural folds and creases, are missing. Ears can also be reshaped, reduced in size, or made more symmetrical.
