Otoplasty is the repositioning of ears to make them protrude less.  This can be done in children and adults.  Both children and adults often get teased about their appearance, or are self conscious.  This requires surgery to reposition the cartilage and place the ear further back along the scalp.  You will need to wear a head band following the procedure for about 3 weeks.  The surgery can be done right in our office surgical suite; no need to go to the hospital!
