Never hide your ears again.

Having large, prominent ears can be embarrassing for both children and adults. Children may be teased or ridiculed at school, while self-conscious adults may hide their ears as much as possible.

Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed by Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons to reshape the ears to make them smaller and less prominent. Otoplasty can correct protruding ears by repositioning them closer to the head. It can also address variances between the size or shape of the ears. Otoplasty is one of the most common cosmetic procedures for children, but is suitable for any age. Children can have otoplasty once their ears reach their full size, usually around age 6. 

By making the ears less noticeable, otoplasty can have a dramatic effect on a person’s self-confidence and self-esteem. It can also spare children from teasing that may have a lasting impact on how they feel about themselves and interact with others. 

The best way to know if otoplasty is right for you or your child is to sit down with your Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons specialist for a personal consultation. Together, you will discuss the condition, the desired results, the details of the procedure and post-procedure expectations, financial options, and any concerns or questions you may have.  

The first step is to schedule an appointment. Scheduling an initial consultation with your Crystal Clinic Plastic Surgeons expert will not obligate you to move forward with any procedure.
