Ear Surgery, also known as Otoplasty, is a procedure which sets prominent ears back, closer to the head, or reduces the size of large ears. This surgery can be performed on children as early as the age of 5. We also offer earlobe repair for stretched out or torn earlobes, which is accomplished by removing the skin cleft that resides between the two sides that are split. A new lobe is reconstructed using sutures that are placed in both the front and back of the ear.
This ear surgery is often done on an outpatient basis using local anesthesia or local with IV sedation.
