Otoplasty

Otoplasty (Ear Pinning) in Beverly Hills

In the world of Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, Otoplasty is a procedure that tends to be done on kids as young as 5 years old.   We like to attend to the problem for children with protruding ears prior to them entering school to save them the potential psychological effects that can come from teasing by other children.  There are many people, however, that come to have Otoplasty as an adult, and almost always they admit to having been teased as children because of their ears.
 The procedure requires an incision that is hidden on the back side of the ear.  Patients are required to wear some kind of garment to keep pressure on the ears for a week.  Men usually wear skull caps and women usually wear fashionable scarfs.  Otoplasty can dramatically improve one’s self esteem and is an easy procedure from which to recover.
