WHAT IS INVOLVED IN EAR CORRECTION?
Ear correction surgery helps people who consider their ears to be too prominent. In many cases, the shape and lie of the ears are inherited, and a family trend can be seen. The most prominent ears often lack a normal fold, and sometimes one ear is more prominent than the other. People with prominent ears are sometimes teased. Particularly during their school years, and this can lead to a loss of self-confidence. Ear correction surgery can resolve this very quickly.
Ear correction surgery is a simple operation that adjusts the shape of the cartilage of the ear to allow the ear to lie closer to the side of the head. During an ear correction surgery, an incision is made behind the ear. The cartilage is then reshaped, and any excess is removed and then sutured into a more normal position. Ear correction surgery takes about 30 minutes.
