Ears that stick out or protrude outwards from the head, instead of sitting flat can become the source or ridicule, especially when present in a child of school age. Correcting this by pinning back the ears, or reshaping cartilage can be done with minimally surgical techniques in the modern era in both children and adults.
Cosmetic ear surgery or otoplasty can be used to correct ears which stick out, reduce large ears or earlobes, increase the size of small ears, or reshape cartilage in ears with an unnatural shape.
