Officially, ears are deemed to be protruding or sticking out when the auricle is at least 2 centimetres from the skull. This is often visible immediately after birth: about 0.5% of babies are born with protruding ears. Protruding ears are not something you can avoid, as it often is hereditary. It is a kind of deformation in the cartilaginous skeleton, but it’s not harmful. Although it is not something you can avoid, protruding ears (fortunately!) have no influence on your hearing function.
Who is protruding ear surgery intended for?
Think your ears are too visible and don’t match the rest of your face? In that case, protruding ear surgery is suitable for you. Having an ear correction done is never too late. The procedure means that the ears are corrected and permanently adjusted to form an attractive, natural shape and position. The result and effect on your appearance will surprise you!
Here at Wellness Kliniek, we only perform ear surgery on adults. Ear surgery on a child? We don’t do that at Wellness Kliniek. You must have reached the minimum age of 18. If you are almost 18, you are of course welcome to contact us for a no-obligation consultation.
