Otoplasty – Corrective Ear Surgery – Houston
The ears are a sophisticated combination of cartilage and skin. When they are deformed, whether it be from birth or trauma, they can dramatically change your overall appearance. In children, deformities such as macrotia (large ears) or microtia (tiny ears) can cause huge problems with self-esteem and confidence. Otoplasty is a corrective surgical procedure that can deal with a wide range of cosmetic ear issues.
Otoplasty techniques range from simple pinning to reform the position of the ears to highly technical reconstructions. Consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Andrew Lyos to determine what strategy is right. During a consultation, the patient’s health will be evaluated and his or her expectations will be discussed. As with all surgical procedures, there is potential for complications, so it is important to be candidly honest about your concerns.
