When you’re a kid, you want nothing more than to fit in, but when you have a physical trait that makes you stand out and become a target for relentless teasing from your peers- it can be difficult to get through it unscathed. For many kids with ears that are abnormally large or stick out from the side of their head, the years of teasing stays with them well into adulthood, coloring their self-confidence. Many choose to undergo Otoplasty, also known as Ear Pinning, which is a procedure that can aesthetically improve the appearance of the ears by removing or re-shaping the cartilage of the ear. This procedure can be performed on children as young as 5 and older. Incisions are made discretely behind the ear crease so any scars are hidden.
