Otoplasty

(Ear Surgery)

Individuals considering ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, are often looking to address prominent ears, large ears, and/or asymmetrical ears. The goal of the surgery is to improve cosmetic appearance by moving the prominent ear back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears.
For the most part, the operation is done on children between the ages of 4 and 14 years old. Ears are almost fully grown by age six, and the earlier the surgery, the less teasing and ridicule the child will have to endure. Ear surgery on adults is also frequently done, and there are generally no additional risks associated with ear surgery on an older patient.
