Overly large or protruding ears can be a source of pain and embarrassment from childhood on. Usually performed under local anesthetic, an otoplasty at our Boston practice consists of repositioning the ears through an incision. Depending on your needs, cartilage may be resculpted or removed to create a more sleek appearance. Dr. Darrow may also use stitches to form the ear cartilage into a more pleasing position. At Otoplasty with Dr. Darrow provides immediate results and most likely a rapid return to your normal activities. Ear surgery or otoplasty can typically be performed as soon as the ears have stopped growing, usually around age four. Why wait for years of negative attention and difficulty?
