Ears that protrude or seem out of proportion to a person’s other facial features can detract from his or her physical appearance. Ear surgery can create a natural shape, bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correction of even minor defects can have profound benefits to appearance and self-esteem.
If protruding or disfigured ears cause you or your child to be dissatisfied with your looks, talk to one of Wilmington Plastic Surgery’s board-certified experts about otoplasty.
EAR SURGERY CAN TREAT:
- Overly large ears — a rare condition called macrotia
- Protruding ears occurring on one or both sides in varying degrees — not associated with hearing loss
- Adult dissatisfaction with previous ear surgery
