Individuals who have ears that are sticking out excessively can get their condition corrected by a conventional otoplasty, which is an invasive ear surgery that cuts out a piece of the cartilage from a small incision made just below the outer rim, and places an implant into the area, as reported by the Daily Mail. This surgery takes approximately 90 minutes to do, and patients will be under general anesthesia the entire time. Patients typically recover within the day and can return to work by the next day.
Patients are able to specify how they would like their ears to look at the end. The ear will retain its shape permanently.
