Kids at school, on the playground, and even on the Internet can be cruel. Kids with conspicuous body blemishes are often the target of verbal assaults and psychological bullying. Large protruding ears have long been the bane of children throughout history as they have been teased with names like "dumbo". Fortunately, today there is a cosmetic surgery that can possibly eliminate these jokes. It is called Otoplasty or ear pinning.

Otoplasty is a surgical procedure that reduces the size, and in some cases reshapes the ears to make them more proportional to the face and head. It can be used to not only make large ears smaller, but it can also make ears that are too small the right size. It can also correct ears like the cupped, cauliflower, and the folded ones.
