No one wants their kid to suffer through unnecessary years of teasing by their peers only to have their self-confidence still suffering well into adulthood. For many children born with overly large and/or ears that protrude out from the side of the head, the teasing from their classmates can be difficult to handle. Through St. Louis Otoplasty the confidence of countless adults, teens and children has risen. Otoplasty can be performed on children as young as 4 to 5 years old and it is generally suggested that the younger the procedure is performed the better both to prevent years of unnecessary teasing and also because of the malleable nature of the young cartilage, however, Otoplasty can still be done on teens and adults as well.

Otoplasty generally takes around 3 hours to complete as the ears cartilage is re-sculpted or the ears are pinned back closer to the sides of the head.To learn more about how otoplasty can help you or your child, contact our office to schedule your confidential consultation with Dr. Cabbabe.
