Surgical Procedures - Face - Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)

Restore facial balance with otoplasty.

Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears. The operation is typically performed on children between the ages of 4 and 14, but is also performed on adults as well. By performing otoplasty at a younger age, children can benefit from the procedure before they reach late school age. Children may experience teasing, bullying, or low self-esteem due to prominent or misaligned ears, and otoplasty can help mitigate these issues and improve their psychological well-being. Ear surgery on adults is also possible, and there are generally no additional risks associated with ear surgery on an older patient.
