Prominent Ears

Prominent ears may cause children significant psychological distress. Prominent ears are readily improved with a usually straightforward surgical procedure.
Cuts (incisions) are made behind the ears through which the cartilage in the ear can be reshaped. Usually, fine dissolving stitches are used to hold the newly shaped tissues in place.
