Large ears or ears that stick out from the sides of the head can be the root of cruel teasing, especially among peers and kids. From young kids through adolescence and on up to adulthood can suffer from feeling self-conscious about their ears. Dr. Jeffrey Darrow has helped countless children and adults alike improve the appearance of their prominent ears through Boston Otoplasty, also known as Ear Pinning.

Otoplasty can improve ears by repositioning them closer to the side of the head or even removing or re-shaping the cartilage of the ear to create a smaller or more symmetrical or proportionate ear shape. Generally, this procedure is safe to be performed on kids as young as 4 or 5 years old and up and usually takes about 2 to 3 hours to complete. Incisions can be easily hidden behind the ear so that patients are left with no visible scars. To learn more about otoplasty can help you or your child, contact our office to schedule a confidential consultation.
