Otoplasty / Earlobe Repair Surgery – Children and adults may suffer from overly protruding ears or large ears. Fortunately, this can be very successfully treated with modern cosmetic surgical techniques. Regarding children who have excessively prominent ears, it is generally advised that they wait until age five or six before undergoing surgery. By this age, the ear has achieved approximately two thirds of its adult size, and the surgery can be performed safely with a good chance of permanent correction. Adults of any age are also candidates for ear reshaping (otoplasty). The operation is typically performed under general anesthesia, but in adults, it may be performed in our office under local anesthesia.
