The asymmetrical or protruding ears could undermine an otherwise attractive face. Therefore, a gentle alteration to the earlobe can bring the ears back to their natural position.
The most common problem is either the shape, or the position.
Shape problem is reflected as some of the curves are not developed properly.
Another common problem is when all curves are present, but still the ear is not in a correct position, somehow rotated out too much. Precise alteration is beneficial to both man, who has a short hair or a woman who can’t put her hair together behind the ears.
For the best results an otoplasty should be done after the ears reach their full size, which normally happens by the age of six.
Through minor surgery new folds, curves can be created or the ear can be brought closer to the head.
