    Otoplasty: round two?

    My son had otoplasty 3.5 years ago (age 5). However, they are now noticeably uneven, with one ear protruding to the point of looking odd. I didn't want to have to get it done again, we both struggled - what are our options? Is surgery our only option?

    Hi Alison

    It is difficult to make a judgement without seeing your son, but I suggest re-operating is the most reliable way of achieving symmetry. Best option is to make an appointment with your local Specialist Plastic Surgeon to have a face to face assessment. Most importantly, your son has to want the procedure.
