Surgery of the ear, also known as otoplasty, is a procedure that Dr. Shatkin performs that helps reduce protrusion of the ear away from the head. Most often, ear surgery is performed on children between the ages of six to fourteen. Ears that “stick out” are often the source of teasing and ridicule in young children. This teasing can have a devastating effect on the child’s psyche. Protruding ears can also be corrected in adult life when the appearance bothers an individual.
