Ear Flaring/Defect

Ear Flaring/Defect

Young children and adolescents may develop ears that protrude excessively from the side of their head. This is a condition called “prominauris” and it means that the external portion of the ear, or the “pinna”, is prominent. Because prominent ears can raise issues with teasing and low self-esteem in children, corrective surgery of the external ear, or “otoplasty”, is relatively common in such situations. Corrective surgery of the external ear shape and position can be completed under general anesthesia in the outpatient operating room setting.
