Often some people are born with very prominent ears. I.e the angle at which it takes off the head is more, causing the ears to be more forward in position, and more visible from the front.
This is also called Prominent ears or Bat ears. This condition is treatable and the best time to treat this is when the kid is more than seven to eight years old. The ear cartilage is large enough to withstand shaping. There are other ear deformities which might need reshaping such as lop ear, cup ear or microtia.
The procedure we use to correct prominent ears is a modern popular technique, which involves reshaping of the ear cartilage with significant sutures. This technique is very safe and effective. The risk of complications is far lower than the cartilage cutting technique. Please read FAQ's for more information.

"After having lost a large portion of my left year in a sports incident a couple of months ago I was pretty sad to lose my good looks. However, my partner soon found about the amazing job done by Aesthetics Medispa in cosmetic surgery. After a lengthy consultation I finally decided to undergo an ear correction surgery. It has been just a month since I have had my ear correction surgery, and I can’t tell the difference between the prosthetic and my real ear. I want to thank Aesthetics Medispa for a job well done."
