It is possible that minor deformities of the outer ears could bother you or a child. Otoplasty creates a more natural shape of the ear that has profound benefits on appearance and self-confidence. Children born with ear deformities can benefit from ear surgery as early as the age of five.
About Ear Surgery
Ear surgery (otoplasty) is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to change the shape or reduce the size of large ears. This is commonly referred to as “ear pinning.” For children, protruding ears can often be a source of teasing, which can lead to humiliation and embarrassment that stays with them through adulthood. Ears are typically fully developed by age 4 to 6, so the sooner you choose to have ear surgery, the better.
