Sticking-out “jug-ears” can undermine children’s confidence even in their early years. Often they are teased by other children, which can result in increased psychological trauma.
Correction of the auricle can take place even before a child starts school, since the auricular cartilage is already fully-formed by this time.
Since there are different types of malformations, variously modified surgical techniques can be used in parallel with the stitch method.
