Before & Afters - Ear Surgery (Otoplasty)
This is an 11YO young man that wanted some improvement in his ears. He had been made fun of at school because his ears were quite prominent. I did a bilateral otoplasty which totally corrected his problem. After doing an otoplasty, the ears will usually stay back in position the rest of the patient’s life.
Otoplasty can be done on children after age 6. The ear is about 85% grown at age 6 and any time after this age you can perform the procedure.
It is often good to have this procedure performed before children in school starting making fun of the prominent ears. This way the child never develops a complex about the appearance of their ears.
