Prominent Ears

Some children are born with one or both ears that are noticeably more prominent than normal. Usually this is as a result of a specific abnormality where one of the folds of the outer ear has not fully developed. It may be a characteristic of the family. This can result in teasing and bullying at school causing psychological distress to the child. If all agree that it is a significant problem then surgical correction is possible.
