For children born with ears that stick out from the side of the head or are abnormally large, teasing from their peers can be insufferable and can effect their self-confidence well into adulthood. Dr. Chiu-Collins has helped countless children, teens, and adults achieve a more desired ear appearance through Ear Reshaping, also known as Otoplasty. Otoplasty is a surgical procedure that can improve the aesthetic value of the ears by re-shaping cartilage.

It is often held that the younger the Otoplasty procedure is performed the better, both to avoid unnecessary years of teasing and because the cartilage is more malleable in younger years. Children around 6 years and older are typically eligible.To learn more about Otoplasty and to find out if it may be right for you or your child, contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Chiu-Collins.
