This is a 9-year-old patient with prominent ears. Other children made fun of his prominent ears and this led to a decrease in self-confidence and self-esteem. He came in with his parents seeking correction. Both Furnas and Mustarde-type suturing techniques were employed to give him and more normal ear shape and bring them closer to his head.
