Some people are born with ears that sit far from the scalp.  These ears appear to protrude and in the younger years, children with prominant ears are often teased without mercy by their peers.  The ears attain 80% of adult size by age 5 - 6. While correction of this problem can be done at any time after the child reaches 5 -6 years, it is often done at an early age to avoid the self conscious feeling and teasing that a child may experience.   

Adult men will have the procedure done to improve their appearance especially if they wear their hair short.  Adult women who want to wear their hair short or up will also have the procedure done.  

Otoplasty, or ear pinning is done with a tiny procure hidden in the crease behind he ear.  For all those who can cooperate, the procedure can be done in the office under local anesthesia with intravenous sedation.  Through the hidden incision, the cartilage of the ear can be reshaped to give the ear a normal appearance.
