This is a 6-year-old boy who had prominent ears. There was a strong family history: His father, uncles, and grandparents all had the same ears. His father had an “otoplasty,” ear surgery, performed during his childhood, so he was familiar with what to expect. It was important to make sure that the 6-year-old understood the procedure and the care involved after the surgery to help achieve the results intended. He was an excellent candidate not only surgically but also emotionally since his father was empathetic with the process. Not all children with prominent ears seek out surgery or require it.
