Otoplasty, prominent ears, torn ear lobes

Patients with prominent ear lobes often suffer from comments and taunts from their peers. Otoplasty is a procedure that aims to remodel the shape and/or size of the ears, in order to make them proportionate to the rest of the face. Similarly, very long or torn ear lobes may require a surgical correction.
