Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)
Otoplasty, or ear surgery can be performed on both children and adults, and can do wonders for aesthetic appearance and increasing self-esteem. Ear surgery is a procedure designed to reduce the effects of ears that protrude too far from the head. Our LIPSG plastic surgeons are highly skilled and adept at otoplasty procedures, many of whom have been trained and educated at some of the most respected medical institutions in the world, including Boston University, Duke University Medical Center, and Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center. Our doctors and medical staff can provide you or your child with effective surgery that will bring the ears to a less prominent position.
Contact LIPSG to schedule a consultation for otoplasty (ear surgery) from our Long Island, New York plastic surgeons. During your consultation, you will be provided with a Vectra 3-D image of what the possible results of ear surgery can look like. This computer-generated image can give you a better idea of the procedure’s aesthetic outcome before you even set foot in the operating room.
Corrective ear surgery (otoplasty) is most commonly performed on children after their ear cartilage has matured and when the entire external ear is at least 75% of the ultimate size of the adult ear. This typically occurs between ages 5 and 8 years. In addition, this age allows time for the participation and involvement of the child in the decision making process.
Your plastic surgeon here at the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group will meet with you for an initial consultation to discuss candidacy requirements and go over all aspects of the otoplasty procedure. Please contact LIPSG to schedule an appointment.
