Many children suffer from bullying because of their prominent ears. Parents sometimes choose to bring their child in for consultation before even being asked. The consultation will help determine whether the operation is needed and, if it is, will be conducted based on the child’s desires. Certain serious malformations linked to other anomalies or to the development of the ear are generally diagnosed at birth and have to be treated early. It is always better to come in for a consultation if there are any uncertainties.
