When To Have Otoplasty?
On average, 5-6 year olds are ideal candidates for otoplasty as the ear will be already developed and the cartilage and tissues will still be soft, making it easy to reshape. However, this procedure can also be performed in adults.
Dr. Moradi is not just a medical expert, he’s an aesthetic professional. He can help you discover your ideal ear proportions and sculpt your ears for a more pleasing appearance. Your ears can be repositioned if they are too high, too low, too far forward, or too far backward for a more harmonious appearance.
Incisions are placed inconspicuously behind the ears or in creases. Following a brief healing period after surgery, we will remove the sutures and you can return to your normal activities with beautiful ears perfectly balanced to your face!
Otoplasties are performed with general anesthesia in an accredited surgical facility. It takes 1 to 2 hours to complete, and the patient will be sent home for recovery. The ear will be bandaged to keep the new position and shape in place. This also helps so that children cannot touch or play with their ears, which may complicate healing. Activities must be limited, especially within the first week. Scars will remain hidden behind the ears or within the natural folds if the incisions are made in front of the ear.
