Otoplasty Fredericksburg

Published on August 23, 2019

Ear Surgery, also called Otoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery procedure performed to create a more normal ear appearance. Children born with overly large, disproportionate ears that stick out from the size of the head often become unwitting targets of teasing. The Ear Surgery doesn’t alter hearing, the procedure is performed through an incision behind the ear in the natural folds of the ear. The Ear Surgery removes excess cartilage and skin to create the ear appearance desired. When the ear cartilage is re-sculpted the sutures are placed and a soft dressing applied to remain while the ears heal for the days following the procedure.
