Can dumbo-like ears be fixed with otoplasty?
I’m from Bloomington. I have dumbo-like ears and would like to have them fixed. How is this done and will the scars be very noticeable?
Prominent ears are common and can be remarkably improved with a straight forward surgical procedure called an otoplasty. With an otoplasty, an incision is made on the back side of the ear, and the cartilaginous framework of the ear is re-shaped to give the ear a much more flattering contour. This procedure is gratifying for both the patient and surgeon in that it makes a flattering appearance change with hidden incisions and the changes are permanent.
