Otoplasty, or Ear Pinning, is a procedure that is performed to correct overly prominent or protruding ears. Kids born with ears that are overly large or stick out from the side of the head often become the targets of cruel teasing from their peers and this may lead them to feel self-conscious about their ears throughout their lives. Otoplasty is a procedure that has helped many to achieve a more normal ear appearance and improve confidence.
The Otoplasty procedure can be performed on children ages 5 and up–the ear cartilage is more malleable in children–though it is still possible to have Otoplasty into adulthood.
