Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is a surgical procedure used to modify the shape, size and position of the ear.

Children with certain congenital ear anomalies achieve the best results from surgical intervention. This is typically performed around the 5 or 6 years of age, once the ear has attained 80% of its adult size.

Wellspring Pediatric Plastics understands that making the choice for surgery can be difficult for parents. We will do everything we can to help you understand our approach and make the procedure a positive experience for your child with:

  • In office procedures. Understandably, some parents would like to avoid general anesthesia. We have the ability and patience to perform many procedures in the office if this is the right decision for your child.
  • High-quality facilities. Our surgeons conduct surgical ear procedures at one of several designated pediatric hospitals. The facilities offer great resources, experienced pediatric anesthesia providers, and attentive staff.
  • A focus on function and aesthetics. Your child’s care matters to us. Our doctors combine an artistic eye, dedication to details, and surgical expertise to encourage a functional result that looks beautiful and natural.
  • Timing procedures for proper development. Our guiding principle is to perform procedures for children when they are ready developmentally and, ideally, before their physical differences impact them socially. We’ll help your family plan for treatment so that you always know the road ahead.
