Being born with ears that stick out or are abnormally large can be extremely difficult for children on into adolescence and even adulthood. Salt Lake City Cosmetic Ear Surgery, or Otoplasty, is a procedure to set the ears back closer to the sides of the head. The cartilage may also be re-shaped or some bits of it removed, as need to create a more symmetrical and harmonious appearance. Cosmetic ear surgery can also be used to correct torn ear lobes and other imperfections in the structure of the ear.
Children as young as age 5 may be eligible for Cosmetic Ear Surgery and Dr. Scott Thompson, a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon has extensive experience in working with both children and adults in this area. If you are concerned for you child or are frustrated with living with it yourself and are ready to discuss your options with Dr. Thompson, we invite you to contact us at our Salt Lake City, Draper, Bountiful or Layton offices to schedule your one on once consultation today.
