Otoplasty (Ear Surgery) : This is a procedure mainly to fold back the prominent or outstanding ear. This is most commonly a congenital problem of a lack of full developement and folding of the ear cartilage. A problem frequently occurs when a child begins school and is being teased by fellow students. Adults are often good canidates as well if they are embarassed by their appearance and are tired of trying to conceal their ears with their hair. This procedure can normally be done under local anaesthetic and usually heals within a few weeks.
