Yes/No: What type of surgery? Plastic surgeons frequently operate on ears that are prominent and deformed. If you are seeking or asking about surgeries on ears to improve hearing - you would probably want to consult an ent.

Exactly. Plastic surgeons often perform otoplasty to change the shape and/or position of the ear or ears. An Otolaryngologist deals with conditions of the ear, nose, and throat (ENT), which may also be surgical.
