Otoplasty Boston - Ear Surgery Wellesley, MA

Otoplasty, is the procedure to correct prominent and enlarged ears. This is done on ages 4- elderly. Other common ear deformities include: “lop ear“, when the tip seems to fold down and forward; “cupped ear“, which is usually a very small ear; and “shell ear“, when the curve in the outer rim, as well as the natural folds and creases, are missing.


Correction of these deformities is most rewarding and makes these procedures amongst doctor’s favorite surgeries because of the tremendous positive effect on the individual’s ability to socialize normally.

This is usually an out patient procedure but the patient is asleep during the surgery.
