At Inspire Aesthetics, our plastic surgeons transform the shape and size of a patient’s ears with compassionate care.
Harmony in Form
Young children and adults alike can improve the appearance of their ears and facial profile with otoplasty. You (and your minor child) can have a private consultation in our Fort Lauderdale or Delray Beach, FL office.
Otoplasty patients should be at least 5-years-old and have one of the following concerns:
- Ears that protrude or stick out from the head
- Ears that are misshapen from a trauma or congenital defect
- Ears that are disproportionately large compared to the head
- Earlobes that are torn or elongated
Patients can expect swelling and bruising after undergoing otoplasty. However, this will subside after the first couple of weeks of recovery. An elastic headband is usually worn for the first several weeks after surgery to keep the ears in their new position and patients are advised to avoid strenuous work for approximately 1 – 2 months after their surgery. Children who have otoplasty will need to be closely monitored throughout the healing process, so they do not compromise the healing of their ears or cause agitation by rubbing or scratching.
Improve Your Ears
Otoplasty can help patients, especially children, enjoy the way they look and restore their confidence and happiness. Having misshapen or excessively large ears can cause unwanted attention and teasing that can affect self-esteem. We encourage anyone who is looking into otoplasty for themselves or their children to schedule a consultation at Inspire Aesthetics in Fort Lauderdale or Delray Beach, FL. It is our goal to help you feel good about your appearance.
