Otoplasty, also called Ear Surgery, is a cosmetic procedure performed to correct the size, shape, and/or projection of ears. Kids who are born with ears that protrude from the side of the face or are overly large, are often made the target of unwanted teasing from their peers which can damage their self-confidence for years to come. Through otoplasty the ears can be reshaped and repositioned to a more normal appearance.
Otoplasty can generally be performed on children age 5 and up, and it is often recommended the earlier the procedure is performed the better both to avoid unnecessary years of teasing, as well as because the cartilage of the ear is more malleable in youth.
