If you’ve struggled your whole life feeling as if your ears aren’t in proportion with the rest of your face, you can consider undergoing ear reshaping. Since your ears are a prominent feature of your visage, you may feel like people notice them as much as you do. But, this is easily rectifiable by undergoing an otoplasty.
Children with prominent ears tend to be teased at school. Which is why I always suggest to parents that if they are considering correcting their children’s ears, that this should be completed before their school going years. The cartilage is much softer at this young age and therefore the results are improved due to easier reshaping of the soft cartilage. Psychologically it is best to improve the shape of a child’s ear before it even becomes a problem later in their adolescent years.
