due to otoplasty.

cartilage of fully developed ears does not often provide the
same moulding capacity as in children.
As for children, it is highly desirable for them to have it
at a younger age sometimes as young as 9 years old not only
for aesthetic reasons but also for psychological reasons affecting
their future development both at school and at home.
The cartilage is extremely pliable, thereby permitting greater
ease of shaping, secondly, the child will experience psychological
benefits from the cosmetic improvement.

Otoplasty surgery can be performed with general anaesthetics
but it is advisable to have it done with local aneasthetic.
It is a simple and pain free procedure.
