Otoplasty is plastic surgery to treat protruding ears. Typically, otoplasty patients are children between the ages of 5 and 14, but the ear surgery can be performed at any age as long as the ear is fully developed. (This usually occurs by age 6.)
Sometimes referred to as ear pinning, otoplasty can position ears closer to the head, minimize their size, and even create symmetry between unbalanced ears through reshaping. If you or your child is self-conscious about protruding ears, schedule a consultation with our Indianapolis plastic surgeon, Dr. Zollman, to discuss this standard plastic surgery procedure.
Dr Zollman, I hope you are proud of yourself! You changed my life with my otoplasty surgery. No matter what I did to better myself, nothing helped because I just couldn’t get past my feeling of being an ugly duckling. My ears stuck out all my life and I experienced years of torment at school because of it now I can show my ears. I’m not afraid when the wind blows anymore. Thank you, thank you, thank you
