Otoplasty Ear Surgery
Protruding ears can be a source of concern, especially for children. While protruding or misshapen ears do not usually affect hearing, bullying and poor self-esteem can become significant issues that affect patients’ quality of life. The ears can be pinned back surgically, which results in less unwanted attention drawn to the ears and a potentially new outlook on life. For adults, otoplasty can be performed in the office with local anesthetic, resulting in quick recovery and minimal downtime. For children, otoplasty can be performed safely under general anesthesia at a nearby surgical center. If you are looking for Otoplasty Fairfax, VA, you have come to the right place!
