For children born with ears that are more prominent than others and that stick out far from the sides of their head, teasing among peers can often be a devastating blow to their self-esteem and confidence. Dr. Ferland has been able to help countless men, women, teens and children get their confidence back through Otoplasty surgery.
Otoplasty, also known as Ear Surgery, is a procedure to re-adjust and re-position the ears closer to the side of the head to create a more normal, aesthetically pleasing appearance. Children as young as 5 are often eligible for the procedure and it is often thought the younger this procedure is performed the better, in order to eliminate unnecessary years of teasing. That said, many teens and adults can also benefit from this procedure.
If you would like to learn how Otoplasty can improve the life of you or your child, we invite you to contact our office to learn more.
