The ears help to create balance and symmetry to your overall appearance. Overly large and/or misshapen ears cannot only compromise the balance of your facial appearance, but they can also be a source of embarrassment that causes much distress or self-consciousness especially for young children.
Ear surgery, also referred to as otoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure that adjusts the size and shape of the ears to create a more proportionate and pleasing look. Otoplasty can be performed to correct a congenital ear deformity or a defect that has developed due to an accident or disease. The cosmetic procedure can be performed on adults as well as children as long as their ears have reached a full size which usually occurs around 5 or 6 years old.
