In Europe and the United States, the state of “protruding ear (standing ears)” is sometimes teased at school and is medically called “Prominent ear deformity”. In the case of ears like the so-called Mickey Mouse, surgery corrects them from behind the ears using a mattress suture.
If this is not enough to fix it, we will make additional cuts in the anterior cartilage. If your ears protrude significantly outside, further wrap the ears with a thread over the mastoid (back of ear skull bone).
The surgery itself can be done under local anesthesia, but it is more common for the children to be hospitalized and performed under general anesthesia.
