Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

Otoplasty - ear surgery to correct prominent ears.

Are you or your child being teased about “bat ears,” “elephant ears” or “telephone ears?”. Do you find yourself hiding behind your hair or hats?


Having large or prominent ears is very common but unfortunately can be embarrassing or distressing for children and young adults who feel self-conscious. The upper portion (or bowl) of the ear may protrude slightly, or sometimes the natural folds that shape the ear don’t develop properly. The problem may occur in just one ear, but most often it is both.
