You might consider otoplasty if:

  • Your ear or ears stick out too far from your head
  • Your ears are large in proportion to your head
  • You're dissatisfied with a previous ear surgery

Otoplasty is typically done on both ears to optimize symmetry.

Otoplasty can be done at any age after the ears have reached their full size — usually after age 5.

Otoplasty won't change the location of your ears or alter your ability to hear.
