If you aren't happy with your ears no matter what you try, you can have them pinned back through cosmetic surgery. This is a last resort, though—know that you're beautiful the way you are.

Tip

Big dangling earrings draw attention to your ears. You might want to consider avoiding earrings completely for this reason.

If you're a parent of a baby who has ears that stick out and you want to avoid them being self-conscious later on, ask your pediatrician about getting splints that can be placed inside the rim of your baby's ears. This can solve the issue without ever having to resort to surgery.

Warning

Be aware that there are dangers to having surgery. You should talk to your doctor before considering cosmetic surgery.
