Ear Surgery for Large or Protruding Ears

"You'll grow into your ears when you get older."

smallearsurgery.jpegA lot of kids who are born with large or protruding ears hear this during their childhood. But for many of them, growth doesn't actually bring their ears into better proportion with the rest of their features. For some children, teens and adults, having large or protruding ears can become a source of anxiety or lead to a lower self-image.

Fortunately, there is a procedure that can improve the shape, position or proportion of your ears. Some people call it "ear pinning surgery," but the official name is otoplasty.

Otoplasty can treat overly large ears as well as ears that "stick out" or protrude on one or both sides of the head. Children can usually be considered for the surgery if they are at least 5 years old, generally healthy, cooperative and able to follow instructions. Healthy teens and adults may also be good candidates.

Ear surgery isn't for everyone, and you should discuss your unique situation with a physician. He or she will help you understand the surgery, the expected outcome, and the recovery.

If you're interested in learning more about otoplasty, contact us today and read more on the website of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
