Corrective external ear surgery is performed to correct “Big Ears”. This usually presents in the form of ears that protrude too far from the side of the head. It can also exist as a problem with the absence of a fold in the cartilage known as the anti-helical fold which results in a “flopping over” of the upper part of the ear. These conditions may occur independently or in combination. We will evaluate the patient to determine which condition is occurring or if both are present. We then will determine which procedure or procedures are necessary to correct the problem.
