This surgery allows the correction of ear deformities, including floppy or protruding ears. The right time to correct an accentuated deformity of the ear should be an early one, around the age of five, to avoid a negative impact in the beginning of a school life.

The retroauricular scar is the chosen one in order to be invisible. Also, it is important to mould the cartilage in a correct way to obtain a natural look, not showing an “operated” ear.
