Otoplasty involves the reshaping, repositioning, and restructuring of the ears. This procedure helps both children and adults who have cup shaped ears that excessively protrude from the side of the head, as well as other ear abnormalities.
When Should Otoplasty be Performed? Otoplasty can make a dramatic difference in the lives of both adults and children. Children benefit immensely from otoplasty when parents elect to have the procedure performed just before they reach school age. Otoplasty can be performed at our office when a child is as young as five or six-years-of-age. At that time, a child’s ears have developed to approximately their full size.
