Protruding ears is the term by which the ears are generally known, when they are pushed forward away from the
head. This makes them appear larger than normal and gives the face an unattractive appearance.
This type of ears cause many children and adolescents to be mocked by classmates and become the centre of
attention, which is why they often generate such strong complexes.
In the case of girls, it is easier to disguise with hair, but children with short hair have it rather more difficult to avoid
glances towards that area. This is a problem that many parents try to solve by placing stickers on the back of the

There are many celebrities who have resorted to aesthetic medicine to correct their ears. One of the best known
examples is Will Smith, who in his early days in the series of “The Prince of Bell Air” had protruding ears which
were later corrected in both shape and size.
Soccer player Gareth Bale has also used this technique to improve his image. For a while, this sportsman left his
hair long to try and disguise them, but finally he decided to opt for a more definitive solution.
