Treating Children with Oversized or Malformed Ears

Published on March 10, 2017

We cannot control the way our ears grow. For many people, the size, shape, and appearance of the ears can be a major aesthetic issue, one that affects the way people see them and the way they feel about themselves. This can be especially true during childhood.

Children as young as four years old have undergone ear surgery to correct oversized ears, protruding ears, ears that have been damaged, or ears that were malformed since birth. A child’s ears can be fully developed by the age of four. This is important because if the ear continues to grow after the procedure, it may negatively affect your child’s results.

If your child is experiencing negative feelings due to the appearance of their ears, contact us to schedule a consultation. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Jarrod Little will provide you and your child with the compassionate care you need.
