What is Otoplasty?
Otoplasty is a type of surgery used to improve the shape, proportion, or position of one or both of the ears. It can be used to correct both defects that have been present since a person’s birth and those caused by injury. Because issues with ear appearance affect people of all ages, this procedure is performed on children, teenagers, and adults.
By undergoing this surgical procedure, patients can improve the appearance of:
- Large ears
- Protruding ears
- Mistakes from previous ear surgeries
- Other ear deformities and abnormalities
What are the Benefits of this Procedure?
An individual’s ears can make a big impact on the way the rest of the world sees them. Having large, protruding, or otherwise abnormal ears can be difficult to deal with, especially if they’re present in younger children; peers can be particularly cruel and unforgiving to these children during their formative years.
An otoplasty can dramatically improve the confidence of the people that receive it, regardless of their age. Correcting ear shape can also improve a person’s overall appearance, and add a more pleasing symmetry to their face and profile. In some cases, otoplasty can even improve the hearing of the individuals that undergo it.
Am I a Candidate?
Nearly anyone interested in improving the size, shape or proportion of their ears is a potential candidate for an otoplasty procedure. However, patients must be healthy non-smokers without any ear infections to be considered. If you are thinking about allowing your child to undergo an otoplasty procedure, it’s important that they are well-behaved enough to follow both pre- and post-procedure care directions.
Before you or someone you love undergoes an otoplasty procedure, you must first schedule a consultation appointment with Dr. Hartman. During this consultation appointment, Dr. Hartman will examine the potential patient’s ears and help decide if this procedure is right for them.
