Otoplasty for Protruding Ears

Otoplasty is the correction of protruding ears.  Many patients are bothered by ears that stick out.  It is very common for these people to get teased or ridiculed for this deformity.  We try to address protruding ears before a child starts school as peer ridicule can have lifetime effects on self-confidence and body image.  We also perform this procedure on adults who were unable to have a procedure in childhood.  The 14 year old female shown below decided to have her protruding ears corrected.  This 90 minute procedure is performed with general anesthesia and one of my favorite surgical procedures.  I love my job!
