Ear Surgery

Protruding Ears (Otoplasty) Goal

Many of our patients who come to The Adams Center to correct protruding ears say that this has been an area of their face with which they’ve never been happy. Surgery to correct Protruding Ears (Otoplasty) is designed to fix ears that stick out too far or are out of proportion to the rest of the face. An Otoplasty is a small procedure that has made a big difference in many of our patient’s self confidence levels.

Protruding Ears (Otoplasty) Method

During an Otoplasty procedure, cartilage is reshaped and repositioned through an incision behind ear. The Otoplasty procedure is performed under either local or general anesthesia.

Recovery from Protruding Ear surgery (Otoplasty)

You may return home the same day following your Otoplasty procedure. Full recovery takes approximately 1 — 2 weeks.


With over 200 successful procedures, The Adams Center is one of Boston’s premier Otoplasty surgery centers.

Financing your Otoplasty

We offer a number of payment plans and financing options designed to fit your needs.


Every patient and every cosmetic surgery is different. One of the most important factors for the success of an Otoplasty, or any procedure is taking the time to review your goals and set realistic expectations.
