The Ear Surgery, also called Otoplasty, is a procedure that is designed to give overly prominent ears, or ears that stick out, a more normal appearance. The Ear Surgery procedure is achieved by surgically repositioning and/or reshaping the ears. An incision is typically made in the back of the ear. Children born with overly prominent ears often feel self-conscious about their ears as they are all too often made a target for teasing by their peers. The Ear Surgery may be performed on children as young as 4 and typically is performed between the ages of 4 and 14, though adults may also benefit from the procedure.
If you are interested in learning more about the Ear Surgery, which takes around 90 to 120 minutes to perform contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Fred Coville. During your consultation Dr. Coville will ask the patient about their goals and concerns and examine the ears to determine the best procedure plan to achieve his patient’s aesthetic goals.
