Otoplasty (Ear Surgery)
Having ears that are too large or that stick out can take a toll on your self-esteem, making you self-conscious about the way you look.
Boys and girls from childhood up through adolescence and all the way into adulthood can suffer the teasing taunts of peers due to ears that are prominent, large, or stick out far from the sides of the head. This can cause damage to their self-esteem and confidence which can effect the rest of their lives. The Breslow Center has helped countless boys, girls, men and women achieve more normal, proportionate ears.
Ear surgery, also known as otoplasty, is a procedure in which the ears are pinned back and excess cartilage is removed. The incisions for the procedure are made behind the ears to minimize any potential scars. Children as young as 4 may be a candidate for this procedure which generally lasts around 2 hours. In just a few weeks time, the patient is able to resume most normal activities. Contact us today to learn more about otoplasty performed at The Breslow Center northern New Jersey practice.
