One of the more rewarding procedures we do is called otoplasty, which is ear surgery. Usually it is done in young people. Usually it is done because they have protruding ears and what they inevitably say is, “The kids at school are mean, they call me dumbo, I am having some insecurities about all this,” and more often than not, it is the mother speaking with her 10-year-old child. It is possible to do a procedure with incision behind the ear to reestablish what is called the antihelical fold with a series of permanent sutures behind the ear, so that the ear is pulled back, so that the ear looks normal and so this is not an issue anymore, and I have done this on a lot of 10-year-olds, 12-year-olds, I have done it on a few college students, beautiful ladies in college who have protruding ears and we made them even more beautiful by fixing their ears.
