Young children often are teased about protruding ears, so the parents sometimes want to have the situation corrected as early as possible.  Once the child is five years old, he can have the otoplasty procedure.

Questioner: Am I a candidate for a Tiplasty?
My nose is currently in the pic above i would like it to look like the picture below it....what would require to be achieved? From research i have done i would think it would be a tip rotation and trim....if so...does this procedure require anethesea /would it be cheaper??? Thanks :)
(Questioner submitted photos)

Dr. Denenberg's answer: I think you're right: upward rotation of the tip is the goal
When you are looking for a surgeon, be sure to see before and after photos of patients who have had a successful and substantial upward rotation of the tip. Many of the revision operations that I perform are on patients who needed rotation but didn't get it in their first operation. It's a change that every plastic surgeon cannot accomplish.
