Surgery for Protruding Ears
Otoplasty is the name of the procedure designed to reposition or "pin back" protruding ears. This deformity often causes deeper emotional upset than is generally realized by the patient's friends or parents. Because the visual and psychological improvement following the operation is usually dramatic, it is rewarding to the patient, the family, and to the surgeon. In children the surgery is preferably done before they begin school.
The otoplasty procedure is designed to "complete" the developmental process by positioning the ears closer to the head and attempting to create the folds by placing sutures in the ear cartilages so that they can "heal" in their desired position.
