Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)

Prominent or protruding ears are a developmental deformity. They can be mild to severe, and vary from right to left. The surgical correction for this problem is ideally performed just prior to first grade, but may be perfromed any time after that age. The results are permanent. No external scars or sutures are obvious. The procedure takes approximately an hour for both sides.

Patients can resume school or work within 3-4 days after surgery. This procedure is not usually covered by your health insurance company, but it may be covered in pediatric patients. Contact your insurance provider to verify your coverage. As an adult, this corrections can change how you wear your hair, relieve self-consciousness from ear protrution, and elevate self esteem. On occasion this can be a one sided correction to match the more normal ear.
