Prominent Ears

Besides beautiful, discreet

Prominent Ears

Prominent or sticking out ears are a very frequent congenital malformation. Otoplasty is the technique that solves this malformation by surgery.


Numerous techniques have been described to correct prominent ears, but the most usual method consists of making an incision behind the ear up to the cartilage zone following the fold. Here, some sutures of nonabsorbable material are inserted that fold the ear back naturally, correcting the deformity.
