Our face is the first thing people visually notice about us. Our ears rarely attract attention when normal in size and relationship to our other facial features. However, protruding, large or misshapen ears can detract from facial appearance.
Children with prominent or deformed ears may suffer the ridicule of peers and a resulting lack of self-confidence. If protruding or disfigured ears bother you or your child, you may consider plastic surgery of the ear.
