Otoplasty is an ear surgery procedure that is performed to correct the appearance of ears that are overly prominent. Ears that stick out from the side of the head or are overly large can often make kids the target of unnecessary teasing that can leave lasting impacts on the self-esteem. Otoplasty incisions are made within the natural creases of the ear.
Otoplasty can be performed on patients ages 5 and up and the earlier it is performed the better as the cartilage is more malleable in youth–though it can be performed at any age.
