The operation to remove the prominent ear due to genetic or different reasons is called Cosmetic Ear surgery (Otoplasty). Prominent ears, bat ears, or other ear-shape problems that cause the undesirable ear appearance are resolved by determining the method to fix the problem. For example:
- If the space between the bone behind the ear and auricular cartilage is wider, this space is narrowed by using special suture technique.
- If there are no sufficient ear folds on the upper part of the ear, the operation is performed by suturing under the skin behind the ear.
