Otoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is performed to correct overly large ears or ears that stick out from the side of the head. Kids with ears that are overly prominent are often made the target of unwanted and damaging teasing that can negatively impact their self-confidence well into adulthood. Otoplasty may be performed on patients ages 5 and up. The procedure is performed with an incision made along the back of the ear, hidden in the natural creases of the ear. Afterwards, a dressing around the head will be worn for 2-3 days while the patient heals.
