Raleigh Otoplasty

Kids can be especially cruel when it comes to noticing things that stick out as different. For kids who have ears that protrude out from the sides of the head, this teasing may become intolerable and issues of poor self esteem may begin to take root. Dr. Stein has helped many kids and adults reduce the size and correct the position of ears through Raleigh Otoplasty.

Otoplasty, also known as Ear Surgery, is a procedure in which Dr. Stein repositions the cartilage behind the ear to bring the ears closer to the side of the head. The incisions for this procedure are made behind the ear so that any scarring is hidden or barely visible. This procedure is safe to be performed on kids (usually 5 years and up) and teens and adults alike. The procedure usually takes anywhere from an hour and a half to three hours. The results are permanent and it is often thought the earlier this procedure is performed the better.

If you feel that you or your child may benefit from Otoplasty, schedule your confidential consultation today by contacting our office!
