Adults and children with large or protruding ears can be the subject of teasing and ridicule, but they can enjoy a more proportionate ear appearance through ear surgery performed by Dr. Jeffrey Poulter at his practice in Bloomington and Peoria, Illinois. Also called otoplasty, this procedure is used to bring the ears closer to the head, making them appear smaller and more proportioned.
Otoplasty can correct large or protruding ears in children and adults, as well as ears marred by birth defects or injuries. Most otoplasties are performed for children between the ages of 4 and 14, though the procedure is just as safe to perform for adults. Generally, ear surgery patients are pleasantly surprised by how easily the procedure can be performed and experience very little pain during the surgery or recovery period.
