Question: My child is 14 years old and suffers from low self-esteem because of his disproportionate ears. Is he still too young to have an otoplasty?
Answer: I think that in some patients the otoplasty is very important for self-esteem. Occasionally, there’s a lot of psychological ridicule and bullying that may go on due to having outstanding ears. By performing this procedure, the child may feel better about himself and may have a striking improvement in all aspects of his life. He’s a very good candidate for this procedure.
