Prominent ears can be corrected through a relatively uncomplicated procedure under local anaesthesia. The operation is performed as an outpatient procedure. A head bandage remains for one to three days, followed by a headband which must be worn day and night for one week and for three weeks at night only. The resulting scar behind the earlobe is practically invisible. Ear correction surgery is the only surgical cosmetic procedure which can also be performed on children.
