In brief: Otoplasty

Correction of prominent ears is called an otoplasty.
This is a procedure that i perform very commonly. It involves "pinning" back and sometimes reduction of the ears as well. Please go to a plastic surgeon that truly has experienc in this area and understands plastic surgery of the ears well. Be well, dr. Fred www.Cornerstoneplasticsurgery.Com.

All of my colleagues have answered this question well. The only thing to add is to make sure you see a board certified surgeon.

In brief: Otoplasty

One of the most common reasons patients present for “corrective” ear surgery is prominence of the ears.
Otoplasty surgery refers to the procedure involved with setting back the ears closer to the scalp. There are a variety of techniques available; exactly what type of procedure would be most beneficial would depend on the specific patient's anatomy and goals.

In brief: Otoplasty

It means each changing.
The most common cosmetic plastic surgery of the ears is to correct prominent ears. The ears may be incompletely folded or have a large cup, and treatment is tailored to the need.

In brief: Otoplasty/EarPinning

Prominent ears protrude due to 2 main issues.
The top of the ear lacks an "antihelical fold" which is the curved cartilage paralleling the upper rim of the ear. The bottom of the ear can protrude, because the "bowl" of the ear" just before the ear canal, is overly large. Otoplasty: a crease incision behind the ear, "bending" the cartilage at the top, +/-"tacking" the bowl down & back.
