Surgery to correct the protruding or over large ears is called as otoplasty. It can be performed on adults and also in children before they enter the school for preventing the psychological problems which may result because of teasing by the fellow students. In the otoplasty, an incision is made behind the ear and the cartilage is cut. The ear is repositioned closer to the skull. Otoplasty is also used for building up or replacing the missing ear which may be a result of a birth defect or an accident.

The size and shape of the eyelids can be changed by an operation called as blepharoplasty. In this procedure, an incision is made in the fold of the upper eyelid to remove the excess skin and fat. This technique is applied to correct the congenital deformities like hanging eyelids which do not open completely. When a comparable incision is made below the lash line on the lower lid, the surgeon can remove the fat which causes bags under the eyes.
