Kieran is delighted with his new ears
About 100 children a year in the UK are born without one or both ears, a condition known as microtia.

Three days after surgery, Kieran is given a mirror to look at his new ears.

His first reaction was "Wow!". Kieran started to giggle, but the operation on his ribs means it hurts when he laughs.

Kieran will need a second operation in six months to make his ears stand out from the scalp more, but he's already delighted with the result./Click BBC News to read full article/- Oculus News
