Atlanta Otoplasty Surgery
Otoplasty, or ear reduction surgery, is defined as the correction of protruding or prominent ears. This procedure is one of the most conventional ear surgery procedures performed to correct a developmental abnormality from birth. Kalos Facial Plastic Surgery LLC is well versed in the latest otoplasty procedures.
Ear Reduction Plastic Surgery
For anyone that is considering otoplasty, the surgery is typically done to set the ears back closer to the head. The procedure can also reduce the size of larger ears.
Ears which appear to protrude or appear to be overly large can be helped by otoplasty. Most commonly, the operation is performed on children between ages four and 14. Ears are nearly full grown by the age of four; thus, the earlier the surgery, the less ridicule and teasing the child will endure from their peers.
Otoplasty on adults is also a possible, with no additional risks for surgery on an older patient. The following are common names for the abnormality:
• Protruding Ear
• Prominent Ear Deformity
• Lop Ear Deformity
During consultation we discuss the patients’ desires and even their expectations from Otoplasty surgery.
