Kids are professionals at isolating anything different or new they see and calling it out, making fun of it, teasing and taunting it. For kids with ears that stick out from the sides of their heads or are predominately large, these teasing taunts can be more than cruel. They can be harmful and cause a negative sense of self which effects their self esteem for years to come, and even on into adulthood. Dr. Thompson has helped countless children, teens and adults alike in gaining confidence through Otoplasty.
Otoplasty, more common known perhaps as Ear Surgery, is a surgical procedure in which the ears are repositioned closer to the side of the head. Dr. Thompson is able to perform this procedure on most children and the surgery generally takes around 2 hours to complete. Scars are easily hidden as the incisions are placed behind the ears.
The best way to determine if an Otoplasty procedure is right for you or your child is through a private consultation with Dr. Thompson. Contact our office today to schedule your consultation about Salt Lake City Utah Otoplasty.
