Prominent ears are a type of deformed ears in which the ears stick out farther than an average person’s ears . Ears are considered normal when their width is between 50-60% of their length and have an average width of 3 to 4.5cms, and length of 5.5 to 7cms. The standard angle between the skull and ear averages 21° for females and 25° for males. The ears are considered detached or prominent when the ear angle with the skull is greater than the average, and these ears are too obvious when viewed from the front. This condition reduces self-esteem and confidence level in both children and adults. The Microtia Trust is a world renowned center for ear reconstruction in India, where the best ear reconstruction and prominent ear treatment is provided by an expert ear cosmetic and plastic surgeon, Dr. Parag Telang.


  • Excessive projection of ear due to enlargement of the cartilage.

  • Presence of excessive retro-auricular angle between the skull and the ear

  • Malformation in the cartilage, which is not, folded enough on itself or in the antihelix.


Prominent ears are caused by loss of antihelical fold, presence of too much cartilage in the conchal bowl of the ear, and combination of both loss of antihelical fold and excess of conchal cartilage.

Inheritance of autosomal dominant trait is probably the most important factor that causes this problem. The condition may be bilateral (both ears) or unilateral (one ear).

Otoplasty surgery is usually best performed any time from the age of seven. By this time, the ear cartilage is mature enough to be shaped, and when the child is old enough to co-operate with the surgery and aftercare. The shape of the ear is altered by using permanent sutures to redefine the normal curves.

The procedure is performed under general anesthesia in children and local aneasthesia in adults. Then in the next step, proper markings are made. The surgical technique that corrects protruding ears helps create or increases the anti helical fold and reduces enlarged conchal cartilage, as each ear’s anatomical problem requires its own solution. This allows the surgeon to correct the position and reshape the ear cartilage with sutures. Hence during the surgery, the folds are created if they are absent, excess cartilage is removed, and sutures are made to attach the ear to the skull.

The scars for otoplasty are all placed behind the ear so that they are not visible. In order to improve the shape of the ear, a combination of either scraping the cartilage or using stitches may be used. Additional stitches may be used to pull the entire ear closer to the side of the head and correct prominence of the ear lobes. The incisions are then closed, and a head bandage applied. The patients are usually discharged on the same day.


The ear surgery offers immediate results in protruding ears once the dressing that supports the new shape of the ear is removed.


Otoplasty is not usually a painful procedure, and usually, only simple pain medications are needed afterwards. The head bandage is left in place for a week, and stitches are removed. Thereafter, the incisions are left open, and one can take a shower normally. One will need to wear a headband at night for a few weeks following the procedure.
