Doctor, patient

Do you want to change your ears? Otoplasty -- or cosmetic ear surgery -- allows you to change the shape, position and size of your ears, according to the Mayo Clinic.

 

According to the Mayo Clinic, otoplasty can be performed on anyone after his or her ears have reached their full size.

 

Some patients who elect to have otoplasty do so because their ears are misshapen due to a birth defect. Some people also opt for it if they think their ears stick out too far from their head, the Mayo Clinic states.
