Otoplasty Seattle

Otoplasty is a surgical procedure to improve the aesthetic appearance of ears that are sticking out from the side of the head or disproportionately large. Many children born with ears that stick out from the side of the head or are overly large become the subject of needless teasing that can negatively impact their self-confidence for years to come.

Otoplasty can be performed on children as young as five or six years old and many recommend the younger the procedure is performed the better both because the ear cartilage can be more easily molded and to eliminate years of unnecessary teasing. That said, teens and adults can also benefit from otoplasty. To learn more about the otoplasty procedure and find out if it may be right for you or your child, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Chung today.
