Prominent ears can be the cause of self consciousness and teasing, particularly in young people. Both young boys and girls can suffer from ears that stick out too far from the side of their head. If not corrected in their youth, it may continue to cause self consciousness throughout adult hood. Our surgeons can improve the appearance of prominent ears using St. Louis otoplasty.

Otoplasty or ear surgery can reposition the ears closer to the side of the head. The procedure takes approximately 3 hours and can be performed as early as 4 years old. The incisions involved are hidden behind the ear leaving patients with no visible signs of the procedure.
