Otoplasty (cosmetic plastic surgery of the Ear)

The surgical procedure to position protruding ears closer to the head or to reshape the ears is otoplasty. Changing the position or shape of the ears usually will not affect hearing.

While ear surgery is successfully performed on adults, it can be a highly gratifying procedure for preschool age children with protruding ears. Otoplasty can be performed on children as young as age four, the time when ears are mostly developed. If the surgery is performed before the child enters school, the emotional and psychological trauma of classroom teasing and ridicule can be avoided.

Few risks are associated with otoplasty and when performed by a qualified, experienced surgeon, it can produce satisfying, predictable results. Dr. Stevens is not only recognized for his exacting surgical expertise in otoplasty, but his ambulatory surgical center provides the necessary environment for safe ear surgery for the pediatric as well as for the adult patient.
