Large, tiny or malformed ears can have a significant impact on your appearance. In children, large ears can be a problem for self-esteem. Ear surgery, technically known as otoplasty, corrects deformed ears for a more balanced appearance.

In many instances, ear surgery is best performed in childhood. The timing of the procedure has a major impact on the results. About 20 to 30 percent of children are born with deformities of the external ear. An otoplasty can be performed on children as young as five or six, where non-invasive techniques such as pining or taping can be successful.

Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Jay Granzow to determine which ear surgery options may be best for you or your child.
