The cosmetic surgical procedure to reduce an overly large ear or to reposition an ear that is protruding from the side of the head is known as Otoplasty Dallas. Otoplasty, also known as Ear Surgery, is performed for aesthetic reasons and does not alter the function of the ear. Many children born with ears that stick out often become the target of unnecessary years of teasing from their peers. For some this may leave a wound in their self-confidence well into adulthood. Patients may also seek out Otoplasty Dallas to correct a birth defeat, for cancer reconstruction or to reconstruct the ear after a traumatic injury. Similarly, patients may seek out Otoplasty Dallas to fix tears in the earlobe cause by earrings or gages. Children as young as 5 may be eligible for Otoplasty Dallas, though Otoplasty may not be right for everyone. If you or your child are interested in learning more about Otoplasty Dallas and to find out if it may be right for you, contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. Sam Lam today.
