Correction of Prominent (Bat) Ears
Bat ears are not necessarily big ears. They are prominent because they stick out from the side of the head instead of pointing backwards. There are 2 methods used to correct prominent ears.
The final appearance not only depends upon the position but the creation of a delicate curve on the fold of the ear that looks natural.
This operation is commonly requested for primary or secondary school children who often are teased in school.
Dr Chan can show you how the ears can be folded back to look natural and suggest appropriate surgeons you can consult with.
