Otoplasty, or ear surgery can be performed on both children and adults, and can do wonders for aesthetic appearance and increasing self-esteem. Ear surgery is a procedure designed to reduce the effects of ears that protrude too far from the head. Our surgeons are highly skilled and adept at otoplasty procedures, many of whom have been trained and educated at some of the most respected medical institutions in the country. Our doctors and medical staff can provide you or your child with effective surgery that will bring the ears to a less prominent position.
Contact Florida Craniofacial Institute to schedule a consultation for otoplasty (ear surgery) from our Tampa, FL surgical team. During your consultation, you will be educated on the possible results of ear surgery so you have a better idea of the procedure’s aesthetic outcome before you even set foot in the operating room.
Corrective ear surgery (otoplasty) is most commonly performed on children after their ear cartilage has matured and when the entire external ear is at least 75% of the ultimate size of the adult ear. This typically occurs between ages 5 and 8 years. In addition, this age allows time for the participation and involvement of the child in the decision making process.
The Florida Craniofacial Institute team will meet with you for an initial consultation to discuss candidacy requirements and go over all aspects of the otoplasty procedure. Please contact FCI to schedule an appointment.
