Ear deformities are more common than you may think. Overly large ears, small ears or ears damaged from sports can dramatically impact your overall appearance. Especially in children, ear deformities can undermine self-image and self-confidence. Fortunately, there is the otoplasty, also known as ear surgery.

Ear surgery is a viable treatment for many different kinds of ear deformities. Ears that are too large can be pinned back in a relatively simple process. The timing of this procedure is essential. Having the procedure done when a child is young increases the success rate. Ear deformities occur in as many as thirty percent of newborns.
