At our state-of-the-art South Florida practice, our board-certified plastic surgeons see many clients who are unhappy with the shape, size, and projection of their ears. Some patients are children who may have undergone teasing at school related to protruding or misshapen ears.
Adults of any age can undergo ear surgery as long as they are mentally and physically healthy non-smokers who are not currently dealing with any significant medical issues. Good candidates have a realistic and positive attitude towards results based on a confidential consultation with our board-certified plastic surgeons in South Florida.
Children as young as five years old can undergo the surgery, as long as their ears are fully grown and they can handle the recovery period. Otoplasty can greatly improve a child’s self-confidence and help them avoid taunting or teasing at school.
