Before & Afters - Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)


This is a teenager who had prominent, asymmetrical ears since birth.  She likes wearing ponytails which shows the asymmetry and the prominence.  She underwent an otoplasty through outpatient surgery.  She wore a headband for a month or two afterwards to maintain the result.  She has gotten a very nice result.  She is quite happy with her ears and will now wear her hair up in a ponytail with no concerns.

This is a 7YO young lady that had very prominent ears. She was self conscious with her prominent ears and her peers would make uncomplimentary remarks about her ears protruding. She underwent an otoplasty. As you can see from the pre and post-pictures, we have made a significant difference in her ears. This is done as an outpatient procedure Insurance will often pay for this procedure in children.

This is an 11YO young man that wanted some improvement in his ears.  He had been made fun of at school because his ears were quite prominent. I did a bilateral otoplasty which totally corrected his problem.  After doing an otoplasty, the ears will usually stay back in position the rest of the patient’s life.


Otoplasty can be done on children after age 6.  The ear is about 85% grown at age 6 and any time after this age you can perform the procedure.  


It is often good to have this procedure performed before children in school starting making fun of the prominent ears.  This way the child never develops a complex about the appearance of their ears.

This is a 22YO lady that desired some cosmetic improvement of her ears.  She said that she could not wear her hair back and had problems wearing her hair down because her ears would stick through her hair.  She underwent a bilateral otoplasty as an outpatient procedure in the office.  Now, she can wear her hair any way she pleases.  She doesn’t have any problems with her ears protruding anymore.  She is very pleased with the appearance of her ears.
