Otoplasty New York – Ear Pinning

If you’re considering ear surgery or otoplasty…

New York plastic surgeon Dr. Scott Zevon offers tips on what you should keep in mind here…

Ear surgery, or otoplasty, is usually done to set prominent ears back closer to the head or to reduce the size of large ears.

Otoplasty Patient Before Plastic Surgery
Ears that appear to stick out or are overly large can be helped by ear surgery.

Often, the operation is done on children between the ages of four and 14. Ears are almost fully grown by age four, and the earlier the surgery, the less teasing and ridicule the child will have to endure.  Ear surgery on adults is also a popular cosmetic procedure, and there are generally no additional risks associated with ear surgery on an adult patient.

If you’re considering ear surgery for yourself or your child, this information will give you a basic understanding of the procedure-when it can help, how it’s performed, and what results you can expect. It can’t answer all of your questions, since a lot depends on your individual circumstances.
