Otoplasty is a plastic surgery procedure that has helped many children, teens, and adults achieve a more normal ear appearance. Otoplasty, also called Ear Surgery, is often sought out when a patient’s ears protrude from the side of the head or are overly prominent. Children with large ears that stick out from the side of the head are often targeted at school for teasing and this can affect the child’s self-esteem well into adulthood.
We encourage you to view our online before and after photo gallery to see real results our patients have enjoyed. Otoplasty can be performed on children as young as five years of age generally and it is often said the earlier the procedure is performed the better both to reduce years of unecessary teasing and because the cartilage in the ear is more malleable in our youth. If you are interested in learning more about Otoplasty and to find out if it may be right for you or your child, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Reinstadler today.
