My daughter is eight years old. The other day she came home in tears because the kids at camp were teasing her about her ears. They are large and they stick out from her head. Can you tell me how otoplasty can fix them and what the scarring will be like afterward?
Your daughters story is a typical one for otoplasty patients. 7 years of age is a perfect opportunity to have otoplasty performed. Unfortunately, that is about the age where children are interacting with other children and they become aware of differences in other children. Otoplasty can decrease the prominence of your daughters ears and re sculpt the ears so they look entirely normal. I make incisions behind the ear so that the scars from otoplasty are entirely concealed. The surgery is extremely safe and effective and will restore your child’s self esteem.
