Should i be concerned if my ears are a bit forward. Is the cosmetic surgery dangerous for ears?

Should i be concerned if my ears are a bit forward. Is the cosmetic surgery dangerous for ears?

This is cosmetic: There are few functional indications for pinning ears back (otoplasty). There are no medical concerns for forward ears. This is essentially a cosmetic concern/operation. The risks are low but not zero. Other than anesthetic concerns for your overall health, the most serious complication following otoplasty is cartilage infection which is difficult to treat but asymmetry/relapse are more common. ...Read more
