What is Otoplasty?

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


For many teenagers, large, prominent ears are sources of embarrassment. Children can be shockingly effective at finding an insecurity and zeroing in on it. If you’re a Denver-area resident with a child dealing with embarrassingly large ears, plastic surgery might be a solution in the form of otoplasty.

Otoplasty, which re-shapes and reduces prominent ears, is not exclusively for children. Many adults undergo the procedure as well. However, patients are commonly between the ages of 4 and 14 when they undergo the procedure.

We understand that plastic surgery is not to be undertaken lightly, especially when your child is involved. However, otoplasty is quite safe and presents no unusual or even significant risks.

Ear re-shaping is relatively simple and will take an hour or two at most. Grossman Plastic Surgery’s doctors have decades of experience as dedicated plastic surgeons and understand how to re-shape the underlying cartilage of the ear in order to re-shape the appearance of the ear itself.
