What is Otoplasty?

Plastic Surgeons serving Denver, Littleton, and Surrounding Areas in Colorado


Otoplasty is a facial plastic surgery procedure performed to reshape large or protruding ears. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your ears, Denver plastic surgeons Dr. John A. Grossman and Dr. Philippe A. Capraro can alter their size to make them more proportional with the rest of your head.

While patients of any age can choose to undergo otoplasty, the procedure is most commonly performed on children between the ages of 4 and 14. Children can often be cruel to one another, and it is common for children with large, protruding ears to endure harsh teasing that can seriously damage their fragile self esteem. Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro have helped many children avoid this cruel teasing by performing otoplasty to reshape their ears.

During the otoplasty procedure, Dr. Grossman and Dr. Capraro will make an incision behind the ears in order to reshape and reposition the cartilage in a manner improves facial harmony. Our Denver plastic surgeons will evaluate your unique physical features and aesthetic goals to determine the most effective otoplasty technique to deliver the outcome you desire.
