You can choose to have Otoplasty, if you are bothered by how far your ears stick out from your head.

PROCEDURE

A small incision is given at the back of the ear to expose the flattened cartilage. Permanent internal sutures are placed in the cartilage to create an anatomical fold in cartilage which looks natural.

Secondly, the ear cartilage is also pulled backwards to reduce the projection of external ear.
