Ear Surgery in Miami
Otoplasty, also known as Ear Surgery, involves slightly pinning or restructuring the ear cartilage to achieve a less open or protruding ear. Children needing surgery are most often victims of nicknames like “Dumbo” or “Mickey Mouse”. We are excited to offer this simple surgical procedure in our Miami surgical center, which can change a child’s future and lead them on a path of confidence and high self-esteem.
This procedure is safe and effective with candidates being anyone with mature ear development. We recommend this procedure for children needing ear pinning before they start first grade. The minimal risk of infection is nothing compared to the benefits in appearance, self-esteem, and social adaption achieved.
Surgery commonly involves a small incision behind the ear followed by sutures to pin the open looking ears back. This creates a slimmer facial profile. Any scarring will be minimal and hidden inside the natural creases behind the ear.
Otoplasty recovery is generally 7 days. The Prestige Institute for Aesthetic Surgery staff will schedule all follow up visits with your cosmetic surgeon. The cost of ear surgery in our Miami office depends on the amount of work needed to position the ear in balance with other facial features. After your private consultation, where surgery details are discussed, we will inform you on costs and pricing associated with this procedure.
