Ear Surgery Palo Alto
Otoplasty simply means plastic surgery of the ear. There are many different types of ear problems that can affect both the size and shape of the ear. The most common presentation is an ear that is normal in shape but sticks out and protrudes to far from the head.
The earliest time to consider surgery is at 6 years of age. By this time the ear has almost attained its adult size. Ear surgery, however, can be considered at any age as long as one is in good health. Surgery can be undertaken to reshape the ear and position it closer to the head. There is no doubting the positive impact that the correction can have on one’s self-esteem.
