Otoplasty Ear Correction Fredericksburg

Published on October 31, 2019

The ears can easily become a target for insults and teasing in children who are born with ears that are abnormal in appearance. Ears that stick out from the side of the head or are disproportionately large often become the source of painful nicknames that can affect a child’s self-confidence well into their adult years. Through Fredericksburg Otoplasty many children, teens, and adults have achieved the more normal ear appearance they desired. The Otoplasty procedure may be performed on children as young as 5 and up. The incision in an Otoplasty procedure is made in the natural folds around the ear so that any incision scars are hidden.

If you or your child is interested in learning more about Otoplasty and to find out if you or your child is a good candidate for the procedure, contact our office to schedule your consultation with Dr. Michael Walker today. A consultation is a great time to ask questions and get a full understand of the procedure. During a consultation Dr. Walker will examine the ears, ask about medical history, goals and concerns. It is important to note that Fredericksburg Otoplasty only enhances the aesthetic value of the ears and does not alter the function of the ears.
