Correction of Prominent Ears, and Ear Deformities
The normal ear is a complicated structure made up of skin, muscle, fibrofatty tissue, and cartilage. While there is a large range in what is considered a normal ear, most people are able to tell when an ear seems abnormal.
The most common anatomical findings that make an ear look different are that the ear projects out from the head too much or that the intricate folds of the ear are not well defined.
