For some, no other characteristic cries out for plastic surgery like protruding ears. Even if the ears are only mildly distorted, the condition can lead to self-consciousness and poor adaptation in school. Adults may also benefit from this procedure, which improves self-esteem with relative ease.
Often, adults choose this surgery in conjunction with other facial plastic surgical procedures. It is possible to not only pin back ears, but also reshape, reduce size, and make ears more symmetrical.
