Ear Reshaping and Repair

Under normal circumstances we hardly notice people’s ears. However, if the ears are very large, prominent or distorted, they tend to catch our attention. Prominent, protruding or poorly shaped ears can be flattened, and contoured to a more elegant form with ear reshaping surgery. The cartilage in the ear is responsible for its shape. The cartilage is flexible and elastic so it can be bent but will return to its original shape. By altering the amount, thickness or shape of the cartilage, the contour of the ears can be permanently improved.
