Can a child receive otoplasty?

Children can be treated for their deformed or protruding ears as early as age four. Some parents seek out otoplasty during these preschool years to avoid ridicule and self-esteem issues that may surface when the child begins attending school and gains awareness of his or her appearance. While there is a slight relapse tendency for otoplasty, the results of this procedure are generally stable even as your child grows.
