Exceedingly protruding ears can be a source of pain and embarrassment from childhood on. Usually performed under local anesthetic, an otoplasty consists of repositioning the ears through an incision in the back. Additionally depending on your needs, your cartilage may be resculpted or removed to create a more sleek appearance. Dr. Park may also use stitches to form the ear cartilage into a more pleasing position. At Mobile Plastic Surgery, we provide immediate results and most likely a rapid return to your normal activities. Ear surgery or otoplasty can typically be performed as soon as the ears have stopped growing, usually around age four. Why wait for years of negative attention and difficulty? Ear surgery is an extraordinarily effective procedure which can have the ultimate impact on a child’s or adult’s self-confidence. Contact us today for more information.
