Otoplasty

Prominent or protruding ears commonly known as dumbo ears, pone ears, etc. This defect must be corrected at a young age, from 5 years , preferably before entering elementary school in order to avoid nicknames and teasing that children are subjected to, and avoid complexes at later ages.

Many patients do not have the opportunity to get a surgery in their childhood, so it is not uncommon to operate in youth and even at older ages.
