Reconstructive Ear Surgery – Otoplasty
Many children, both male and female, are born with ears that protrude from the side of the head. Ears that stick out too far from the side of the head can be a source of teasing among children causing self esteem setbacks. Reconstructive Otoplasty is a cosmetic procedure designed to set the ears back against the side of the head.
Dr. Placik has extensive experience performing ear surgery on both children and adults. Children may be eligible for the procedure as early as 5 years old. Children who undergo the procedure can be spared years of teasing. Adults who have learned to live with their protruding ears are given an opportunity to live life without worrying about their hair covering their ears or wearing garments to cover their ears.
Otoplasty, or ear surgery is one of the most rewarding procedures Dr. Placik offers. Ear surgery can also be used to correct torn ear lobes and other imperfections in the structure of the ear.
