Otoplasty is a common procedure to re-establish an anithelical fold. If you have some images of your ears that can be helpful to suggest an appropriate procedure. The main components of an otoplasty for prominent ears includes 1. establishing an anti helical fold 2. reducing the conchal bowl and 3. setting back the ear lobe. RegardsDr Guy Watts
