Otoplasty is a cosmetic surgery procedure that is performed to improve the appearance of the ears. People who are born with overly large ears or ears that stick out from the side of the head are often made the target of teasing by their peers. Otoplasty, also called Ear Surgery, can help to correct size and placement of the ears to a more normal size and positioning. Otoplasty can be performed on children generally around age 5 and up–and it is often recommended that the earlier the procedure is performed the better both to reduce years of unnecessary teasing that can affect self-confidence into adulthood, and because the cartilage of the ears are more malleable.
