Otoplasty Forum - Teasing with Ears that Stick Out

I just read an article about kids being teased with ears that stick out and otoplasty surgery to fix them.

Ears that Stick Out is not a new problem. This has been a factor for a long time.

For some Hiding Big Ears becomes a factor. Check out the early movies of Clark Gable or the letters at the start of his career. The protruding ears were indeed a factor. He was sensitive enough about them that shortly after his daughter came home crying about being teased, otoplasty surgery was done on her ears shortly after as is discussed in this page on Inheriting Big Ears.

Kids can be cruel, and otoplasty ear surgery can provide a normal looking ear. However, this is an art form. Not all surgeons have the same skills. Use our resources here in this forum to learn about the surgery and How to Evaluate Otoplasty Pictures to understand that doctor's skills.

Hope this helps,
