Ear Correction Surgery or Otoplasty is the most common plastic surgery procedure of the ear in children. It is also common for adults with prominent ears to feel uncomfortable with their appearance and seek corrective ear surgery.
Parents seek surgical correction mainly to spare their child embarrassment and teasing. The most important factor is to ensure that the child has expressed a desire and willingness to undergo surgery.
