1 doctor agrees

In brief: Rarely or never

Imho i would refer a patient for this only when nothing else would be acceptable to them or the deformity interfered significantly with function.

In brief: Cosmetic

When you find the ears are cosmetically a problem, otoplasty is a common procedure.
See a Facial Plastic Surgeon.
