Otoplasty is a surgical procedure done to the ear to cosmetically alter the size, position, or proportion of the ear(s). Protruding, asymmetrical, or prominent ears are known as a developmental abnormality from birth. Ears that protrude from the head or are overly large can cause many people, especially children, to be self-conscious. It is very unfortunate, but many children who have prominent are teased throughout childhood and adolescence. The earlier otoplasty surgery is done, the less ridicule and teaching children will endure from their peers. Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC offers the highest standards and latest technology in otoplasty procedures.
The ears typically stop growing after the age of four, which is why otoplasty surgery is often done on children and adolescents. Adults with protruding or asymmetrical ears are also good candidates for otoplasty, and there are no additional risks for older patients. Cosmetically improving the appearance of the ears is a relatively small procedure that can have a huge impact on a person’s life. During consultation at Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC, the patient’s desires will be discussed, expectations of the surgery will be discussed, and a comprehensive evaluation of the ear cartilage will be done so as to tailor the surgery to each individual patient.
If you were born with overly large ears or ears that stick out prominently, if your ears are disproportionate to your head or are oddly placed, or if you have suffered an injury that has negatively impacted the shape or positioning of your ears – contact the Otoplasty Surgery experts at Kalos. Dr. Benjamin Stong is a dual board certified facial plastic surgeon, and he offers the most qualified experience for anyone considering otoplasty.
